GeoBlue Navigator for Maritime Crews and Employers...

GeoBlue Navigator International Medical Health Insurance for Maritime CrewsGeoBlue Maritime Navigator for CrewsWorldwide health insurance and services for career Maritime Crews and Employers - The GeoBlue Maritime Navigator health plan is designed to meet a crew member's need for comprehensive worldwide benefits - inside and outside the U.S. - without the typical limits, eligibility conditions and benefits exclusions common among traditional plans.

As global lifestyles emerge, the demand for comprehensive international health insurance has grown rapidly. In response to this demand, a new generation of superior health plans is now available to serve expatriates and their families. This is a positive development for American expatriates who have historically had limited choice when it comes to coverage. Existing insurance options have often missed the mark because of limited benefits, long waiting periods, harsh exclusions, per-certification penalties, lack of portability and other hidden gotchas. 

GeoBlue Navigator is the premier maritime health plan because it combines these benefits with concierge-level medical assistance and easy access to an elite community of carefully selected hospitals outside the U.S. and a network of over 700,000 doctors and hospitals inside the U.S. through the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Network. GeoBlue Navigator gives crews peace of mind, knowing they always have the freedom to access top medical care and benefits no matter where their ministries take them.

GeoBlue Short Term Plan Links

Residing or traveling for a short term period outside your country of citizenship may create challenges to your current health care program. Brief trips expose you to risks which may not be covered by your current domestic health insurance plan. It is prudent to procure International Health Insurance coverage prior to leaving your home country and traveling aboard. In addition some countries you may be traveling to may require proof of coverage as a condition to your visa. When you are traveling abroad and your coverage needs to provide benefits for things such as Sickness, Accident and Medical Evacuation. Most domestic plans do not cover medical evacuation which can cost as much as $250,000 or more. In addition you will also need more than insurance. You will also need knowledge, information and safety resources that will help keep you safe and health.

GeoBlue Long Term Plan Links

Living outside of the United States or your home country for more than 6 months creates a threshold that you cross that requires a thoughtful approach to making sure your health insurance coverage meets or exceeds your needs. This is especially true for those of us who live in the United States. If you have a domestic health plan it is important that you look carefully into the details of the plan should you move outside the U.S. for more than 6 months. Most plans will not cover you once your have moved and are outside the country for an extended period of time. And for those plans that remain in force while you travel - be careful as the coverage will generally only cover you for emergencies. Coordination of payment with overseas providers will more than likely not exist and should you end up in a medical facility that is not part of their overseas networks than you will more than likely be on your own and responsible for your own payment for services.
