I’m sure that you’re aware of this though you may not have thought about the implications of it…
Not all healthcare systems provide the same quality of care!
You could find yourself in a situation where you can’t get the treatment that you need where you are…
Now that could be because you’re in a remote area that has basic facilities
And if you move to a more built up area then you may be able to get the care that you need
The issue could be bigger than that and you may not be able to get the necessary treatment in the country you’re in
Which would mean that you need moving to a neighbouring country that’s got what you need
Or you may need transporting back to your country of residence where you can get looked after
Now much of this will depend on your situation
The more serious it is the more complicated it’s going to be to move you
The more complicated it is to move you and the more serious your health condition…
The more it’s going to cost to move you
The further they have to move you the more expensive it gets
When you have to move across national borders the more complicated it is and guess what?
Yes you got it the more it’s going to cost more
If you need moving by air, helicopter or plane then that’s going to be expensive. You could be looking as much as $300 per mile.
That’s going to add a significant amount to your treatment costs!
If you are travelling to somewhere that’s got a very limited healthcare system
Make sure that your policy has evacuation coverage…
And also increase the overall benefit level of your policy to reflect this
If you want to know if the place that you’re visiting falls into this category. Then you can find this information at World Population Review
Now let’s move onto the other factor that’s going to have an impact on how much cover that you need…
