Growing numbers of families are moving overseas every year. Businesses around the world are putting an increased emphasis on helping relocating employees secure family visas. This can play a huge part in making overseas positions more attractive, particularly as an increasing number of employees are looking beyond their salary and taking work/life balance and the overall employment package into consideration.
While there are many factors to take into consideration prior to moving your family overseas, one of your biggest concerns, especially if you have young children, is likely to be how you can access the healthcare services in your new location.
Relocating your family from one town or city to another in your home country can be stressful enough, let alone relocating abroad!
When relocating overseas, you’ll probably find yourself doing a lot of research into how the healthcare system works in your new location. Depending on where you’re moving from, you might already be used to making private health insurance contributions, or likewise, you might be used to a universal public healthcare system where you pay very little or nothing for most of your medical treatment. Where you’re moving to may offer a similar or a completely different healthcare system to the one you’re used to.
Ultimately, however, the healthcare system works in the country you’re moving to, you simply want to ensure that you and your family can access the treatment you need when you need it.
Cover yourself and your family with private health cover from Now Health International.
With international health insurance coverage for you and your family, you take away a lot of the stress of learning how the healthcare system works in your new location. Imagine how you’d feel if you thought you were entitled to free healthcare only to turn up at a public health facility and be presented with a sizeable bill upfront!
When you have private health cover, you and your family can relocate with the peace of mind that you’ll be able to access the treatment and care you need, when you need it. In countries with stretched public healthcare systems, this will eliminate waiting times, and may enable you to access specialist treatment and care not available in the public sector.

“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!”
