… after all you will not be away for long and medical issues always happen to someone else, don't they?
However, if you have an accident or become ill, can you afford the cost of medical treatment? What happens should you need to be medically evacuated? Will the treating doctor be able to get hold of clean, uncontaminated blood should an emergency transfusion be needed?
The International Contractors Health Plan answers these questions and provides peace of mind no matter where in the world you're working, and assistance is only a phone call away 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
You will be covered for medical treatment costs and also the expense of an emergency medical evacuation if it's needed. The policy is supported by emergency experts who are understanding, sympathetic and knowledgeable to handle any situation that may arise.
If you are working in a place where you feel a little uncertain about a diagnosis and want a second medical opinion on a proposed treatment plan, you will have access to Best Doctors. They will be able to arrange a review of the medical diagnosis and treatment plan with a world class specialist in a field that relates to your medical condition.
You will also become a member of the Blood Care Foundation. Worryingly, unclean blood is still being used in operations in many parts of the world, so should you be badly injured and require a blood transfusion, your membership will provide access to a global network of blood banks, enabling clean uncontaminated blood to be sent to almost any location in the world within 12-18 hours.
Security, quite rightly, is high on everyone's agenda at the moment. Therefore, built into the policy is access to the very latest travel safety tips and advice, and up-to-the-minute information on civil unrest, natural hazards and travel disruptions from Red24, covering hundreds of countries and cities worldwide.
And on top of all this, if there is a death of a close family member back home whilst on assignment, the plan will even pay for a return flight home.
