IMG Staff Members Know The Importance of International Health Insurance

“The biggest question is, if you're sick at 3 AM, the very first day you arrive, particularly if you have dependents and children, where are you going to take them? What are you going to do? How much is it going to cost you? How are you going to pay for it?" - James Neal, Director, Asia.

These are just a few of the many important questions that expats are faced with when moving to a new country and navigating new health care systems. And, as Ricardo Urbina, Director of Business Development, mentions, "As you travel from country to country, your needs are always the same: to get proper health care when you need to."

Choosing a health insurance plan with a company that understands the challenges and new experiences expats are faced with is pivotal. Hear more from the IMG staff and the experiences they have had as expats living outside of their home country, below.
