Combining both ACA-compliant and international coverage into one easy to manage solution
Now more than ever, it is important for all expats considering moving to the US and Americans/tax paying residents leaving the US to ensure that you have an ACA-compliant health insurance plan (read our blog post on this topic to learn more about the ACA). Cigna International Healthcare has recently introduced the first ACA compliant international health insurance plan that combines both coverage in the US and worldwide into one unique solution that is perfect for individuals, families, and companies looking to cover their US-based employees.
Features of this plan include
Compliant with the United States' Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act:
If you’re in the US, you will likely need to have a certain level of medical insurance coverage. Cigna International Health plans meet governmental requirements and much more.
Ideal for Americans abroad:
Retain an ACA-compliant health insurance plan, while still having the flexibility to receive medical care anywhere in the world! Frequent traveler? Then you can’t miss with International Health plans from Cigna.
Ideal for non-Americans in the USA:
Want to make sure you have adequate insurance coverage in the country with the most expensive healthcare in the world, while still being able to see your doctor back home? Cigna International Health plans are right for you.
Medical Evacuation and Repatriation:
If you find yourself in a location that does not have adequate medical facilities to address your needs, Cigna International Health plans can cover the cost of transporting you to the nearest appropriate medical center or even fly you home as an added coverage. Costs for your companion’s travel can even be covered.
Dental and Vision:
With optional dental and vision coverage, you can create a truly comprehensive health insurance plan.
No need for short term insurance:
Rather than juggle multiple insurance plans for at home and when you are traveling, take care of all your potential medical needs with a single policy.
Tailored to your needs:
Cigna International Health plans are not one-size-fits-all. With a range of cost share options and coverages that can be added, these plans can be customized to suit your specific needs.
No need to wait for open enrollment:
The international nature of these Cigna plans eliminates the need to wait for open enrollment periods to change your benefits.
Get help while abroad:
Cigna’s Global Health Assist service can help you with obtaining healthcare when you are in an unfamiliar place.
Continuous coverage, even if you move:
Unlike local plans that will end once you move outside the US, these international plans are as mobile as you are. Keep your coverage and avoid problems like pre-existing conditions.
A trusted global insurer:
Cigna has been a provider of quality global health insurance for over 30 years. They have 86 million customer relationships in over 200 countries, showing you that they are a trusted brand all around the world.
Save time and let Cigna and your healthcare providers handle the hassle of payment with worldwide direct billing.
All the benefits you would want from a comprehensive health insurance plan, including inpatient, outpatient, and maternity coverages, testing, prescriptions, therapies, wellbeing programs, preventative care, and more.
