Short Term Health Insurance

Short Term Insurance

Customisable benefits make short term health plans the most sought after and best option for you if you’re going to be spending time overseas. Short term health insurance policies cover you for anywhere between 1 and 12 months, often with an option of turning your policy into a full annual insurance plan after your 12 months are up.

Area of Coverage

With a travel insurance policy, you will find that if you need extensive treatment your insurer will try and have you relocated to a medical health facility or hospital back in your home country. This means that you will then be covered under a home insurance plan, and will no longer be receiving treatment through your travel insurer. Conversely, a short term plan lets you choose where and how you can receive treatment. You can remain in the country you’re visiting to receive treatment, visit a neighbouring country with premium quality health facilities or return home for the comfort of familiarity. With a short term health plan the choice is yours.

Why Not Just Travel Insurance?

A travel insurance policy has much lower levels of coverage than a short term health insurance policy. Travel insurance policies typically cover you for limited in-patient treatment, and exclude any treatments for pre-existing conditions. While the extent of coverage differs based on the specific travel insurance plan you choose, a short term health insurance policy provides you with many more options, and a much more extensive range of coverage choices due to the ability to customise the plans.
