There are times when receiving treatment in one of our specially selected hospitals or medical centres in the country in which you are living will be the perfect option to ensure your health requirements are fully met.
Normally, when you need treatment under one of our plans, a local medical centre will be able to provide everything you need. You are treated, you recover and return to work and family life.
However we also know that there are times when medical conditions are more serious, and in some cases the treatment you need may not be available locally. Travel may be required to receive necessary treatment. Allianz Worldwide Care offers two options in this instance, depending on the plan you choose; evacuation to a place where the treatment is available and repatriation to your home country for treatment.
For expats and their families living or working in remote areas where there may not be easy access to medical facilities, the inclusion of medical evacuation and repatriation cover may be an important part of their health insurance plan.
Although it is not something we like to think about, it is important expats also consider what will happen in the event of their death, or that of a family member, while living or working overseas. They may want remains returned to their home country.
