Voyage of Egret Forums

Tim Morris, Torquay, Devon GBR asks:
Hi to you both. Just wondered how you have dealt with healthcare provision for your global wanderings. Do you rely on local services or have you taken out insurance. Thank you.

Scott Flanders from Egret responds:
Tim, We carry international health insurance with a very high deductible. We pay for regular visits out of pocket. We find it is much, much cheaper than our old insurance. The only caveat is we have to be out of the US for six months of the year. No problem there. It also allows for us to be treated in the US. What we are insuring for are catastrophic expenses for long term care. The insurance costs us something over $3000/year for both of us. In Europe we paid out of pocket for three different situations and found health care excellent and very reasonable vs the States. |
