International Citizens Insurance has identified what it believes to be the top providers of international medical insurance (IMI) for globally mobile individuals based on cost, customer service, coverage options and quality. The firm enlisted the help of a team of global insurance experts who have had plenty of experience working with expatriates, global nomads and other international citizens to help select the leading providers.
“With everything that has happened in the last year, and as the world opens up to travel again, international clients need a resource to help navigate the complex world of international health insurance,” said Joe Cronin, President and Founder of International Citizens Insurance. “The plans listed in our top 10 list provide a range of coverage and service to meet the needs of the widest range of customers from around the globe.”
Comprehensive cover, affordability and healthcare access
Cigna, Aetna International and GeoBlue were named the top three best IMI providers in 2020 – Cigna, for its policy flexibility and 24/7/365 access to high-quality medical professionals; Aetna for its extensive and comprehensive worldwide cover and quality service; and GeoBlue for providing a premium option (with competitive pricing considering its high levels of cover) for US citizens living abroad and for expats in the US.
Other leading IMI providers that International Citizens Insurance named were Now Health International, which the firm said provided a more affordable option, with comprehensive benefits; International Medical Group, for its wide-ranging portfolio of products, including trip cancellation and long-term international medical cover; Allianz, which the broker insists offers the best IMI for employees; and BUPA international, whose breadth of medical professionals (that speak multiple languages), as well as its impressive service, make the company stand apart.
Commenting on the many leading plans, all of which are provided by the International Citizens Insurance broker team, Cronin said: “The mix of plans allows our team to provide our customers with coverage regardless of where they are from or where they are going – we are truly global, and these plans reflect the needs of our clients. We're excited to congratulate this year's winners and will continue to develop innovative solutions for our clients wherever they choose to live.”
