Domestic Health Plans tend to be expensive and restrictive for Foreign Nationals. At Global Life we have access to the very best Private Medical Insurance, designed for foreigners, and can include a wealth of benefits not normally associated with local health care programs.
Private Medical Insurance (PMI) covers the costs of private medical treatment for curable short term medical conditions, referred to frequently as 'acute conditions'. PMI includes the costs of surgery, specialists, accommodation and nursing normally at a private hospital. The plans on offer usually have two main categories: Standard and Comprehensive, but there may be variations depending on the provider.
A Standard Plan covers hospital or emergency treatment. It will include 'in-patient' and 'day-care' treatment only. Comprehensive Plans may offer additional coverage including such care as 'outpatient treatment', dental treatment, complementary medicine, maternity, travel and personal accident cover
