Understandably, you probably have a lot of questions about International private medical insurance. Let’s answer a few of those for you.
How exactly does World wide health insurance work?
World wide health insurance gives you complete coverage, in comparison to local private medical insurance plans that you subscribe to in your home country and are limited or do not cover you at all once you leave the country. A World wide health insurance plan from Now Health ensures access to the best medical care at the quality you would receive at home, anywhere in the world, regardless of the country’s own health care policies. With this in place, you don’t have to worry about where your coverage starts and ends each time you decide to pack up and choose another destination to cross off of your bucket list.
Local healthcare insurance plans are structured around covering all of your medical expenses in your home country, but are usually very limited once you leave your home country.
There are a lot of expatriates that think a local health insurance plan offers sufficient coverage for the duration of their time in another country, especially expatriates from countries with high quality insurance systems and health care facilities. The downside to these insurance plans are the limitations.
Limitations can include problems due to minimum coverage or a plan that only covers you for a limited window of time, meaning that after a certain amount of time, the local insurance plan does not cover any health care expenses anymore.
Choosing Now Health International to be your insurance provider, will ensure you and your family are covered to a degree that gives you the peace of mind necessary while traveling or living outside of your home country. You can be confident that you will receive the same quality of care that you would get at home, no matter where you are in the world. If you spend most of your time abroad but reside in your home country a few times a year, you can still receive coverage when you are back home, for however short of a time you are there.

See what actual Now Health customers had to say:
“For an insurance provider with a wide and international client base, Now Health has proven to be hassle-free and efficient, especially in its dealings with medical care providers in Malaysia and Singapore. Now Health is particularly suited for expats and frequent travellers, and certainly something I would consider keeping as an individual policyholder should my next employment not provide a similar level of cover.” – Johnathan
“I have had excellent service from NOW Health.
Our claims are always processed efficiently and anytime I need to speak to a Consultant they are always polite and knowledgeable, and seek to sort out any issues quickly.” –Alison
“Our company is on a corporate plan and I have been covered for more than 3 years.
Staff from Now Health have always been helpful. They are able to provide detail information about my health plan when I call the customer service hotline and they respond quickly to my claims. I most appreciate the quick response time on their customer service hotline. Unlike other insurance providers, I never had to wait for a long time on the phone, and their officers have always been helpful and polite.
They also provide clear instructions of what documentations are required in order to make a valid claim. There was one occasion when I really needed to see a doctor urgently on a Saturday afternoon, the customer service officer was able to email me a list of doctors' contacts, which saved me a lot of time trying look for a doctor when I was really ill.
Keep up the good work! Thank you to the Now Health Team!” - Grace
