International Health Insurance: Special Plan

Special

Special offers a balanced combination of high-level benefits at a competitive price to meet your medical needs abroad.

Our plan Special gives you the opportunity to take comfort in a comprehensive range of benefits, from complete dental and vision coverage, maternity care, preventive treatments to therapeutic services. It covers you not only for emergency and unexpected illnesses but also for all inpatient and outpatient treatments you might need when you live abroad.

Just like our other international health insurance plans, you have access to 24/7 medical assistance, repatriation, and evacuation, as well as free medical services. Special is the best choice for individuals, couples, and families who are seeking flexibility and peace of mind in any situation during their expatriation experience.

What Special can do for you?

Dental and Vision

Special will make you smile with a full set of teeth! The plan gives you access to quality and affordable dental insurance, from basic to major treatment (implants, dentures), as well as vision care.

Future parents?

Special includes a maternity cover specifically designed for mothers-to-be and growing families that reimburses all delivery and pregnancy-related expenses. We also insure newborns from their very first day of life.

Evacuation and Repatriation

Evacuation and repatriation are included in our Special, as well as many other forms of medical assistance.
