MediCare International's focus on cost control is based on an aggressive excess or co-insurances strategy, allowing clients to buy international medical cover with up to 50% off the cost of premiums. In practice this means expatriates are still securing cover against potentially high cost claims such as hospital treatment, long term illness, evacuations, major operations, complications etc., but from a day to day perspective in areas such as GP or dental costs, the policy holder is effectively self-insuring to save on costs.
MediCare International believes this gives clients the best of both worlds. Managing director Debbie Purser said, “We are constantly looking at ways to keep costs down for clients, whilst at the same time retaining top quality options on cover, should the need arise. Our voluntary excess structure can give policyholders up to 50% discount on their premiums, which in real terms can bring the cost of a typical policy for a 40 year old single male to £822 annually or £215 quarterly with cover still included for major events such as inpatient stays, cancer treatment costs and medical evacuation.”
MediCare International offers four different levels of cover across two geographical options, worldwide and worldwide excluding the USA, Canada and the Caribbean. Polices cover a wide range of potential complaints from GP and dentistry visits through to emergency hospital care and evacuation for the most serious cases. MediCare International is well known as one of the few insurers whose policies cover in full the cost of chronic care treatment. The company also covers workers in some of the world’s more difficult areas such as warzones and post conflict reconstruction areas.
