Healthcare cover to protect you and your family wherever you are in the world.
Living abroad can bring healthcare complications with it. Whether permanent or temporary, if you or a family member becomes ill, being unsure of your healthcare provision can be very stressful. Stanhope Cooper provides international health insurance policies that cover you anywhere in the world. Reassurance that no matter where you are, you can get the medical treatment you need.
What is international health insurance?
International medical insurance is designed for people living abroad for an extended period of time, covering the costs for everyday medical expenses whether that be short term (students travelling/on a gap-year etc.), mid-term (people on contracts working abroad for between 3 months to 3 years) or on a long term basis (moving abroad indefinitely). We work with a number of insurance providers, enabling us to tailor the options available to your specific requirements. You can be covered for things such as:
- Visits to a doctor or specialist
- Diagnostic tests
- In & Day patient procedures / surgery
- Emergency treatment
- Maternity cover
- Dental procedures
How can international health insurance work for you?
International health insurance can cover you for any emergency treatment that may be required, as well as diagnosis and post-treatment aftercare. Our insurance ensures that you are covered in a comprehensive way, the same way that you would be covered were you living in the UK. If you have a preferred doctor or specialist in another country, you have the option of seeing them. You can choose to have cover for as long as you need it. No matter the reason or length of time you’re abroad, we can arrange that for you.
