Millions of people choose to move overseas every year.
Whether you are relocating for employment reasons, as a lifestyle choice, or to retire, emigrating is an exciting time yet also one of upheaval and potential stress.
One of the biggest factors to consider when moving abroad is how you will access healthcare in your new location, especially if you’re moving with a young family, or are a retiree dealing with an existing condition.
With expat health insurance from Now Health International, you can ensure you’re able to access the private sector and cover your costs for whatever medical treatment you require in your new country.
Depending on your circumstances and reasons for relocating abroad, you may be required to take out private health and medical insurance cover as one of your visa conditions.
It is also worth considering how you access healthcare in your current location, as well as how the healthcare system operates in the country you’re considering moving to.
Even if the country you are moving to gives you the opportunity to make social security contributions and subsequently access the public healthcare system, it can still be worth supplementing your cover with private health insurance. Getting ill or requiring treatment in an unfamiliar location can be intimidating, and having to wait to access treatment via the public sector can add unneeded stress at the time you want it the least.
With international health insurance, you can ensure you’re able to access the healthcare facilities and get the treatment you need quicker.
There is no doubting the levels of excitement that people can feel when choosing to move overseas.
At the same time, it is a massive step for anyone to take. You’re moving your whole life to a new location, where perhaps you don’t know anyone or have only visited on a handful of occasions prior to moving there full-time.
When you have international health insurance and are able to access private healthcare facilities when you need to, you will live in your new location with peace of mind and find yourself worrying about dealing with the public healthcare system or how to register to be able to see a doctor. You’ll be able to access these facilities quicker than you likely would via the public system and get back to living your exciting life in your new location.

“I am so grateful to the Now Health Team for everything they did for me and my family. My rare condition was completely unexpected and it was distressing to discover this while I was pregnant. However from the initial diagnosis all the way through to my kidney transplant, the team were nothing but supportive and ensured I could access the best care when I needed it most. Having the reassurance that my mother’s transplant donor costs would be covered was also a real relief. Thank you Now Health!”
