Having a medical plan when you are going abroad is absolutely essential. Make sure you get the maximum coverage included in your plans. Take a little time to go through the covers provided and find out small details you might be missing.
- Find out about the cover offered for chronic conditions. Usually, you won’t be receiving covers for a pre existing condition. However, if you develop conditions like asthma or diabetes after signing the plan, you need to know what will happen to your covers.
- Most companies will cover only emergencies in the short run. However, there are plans where you can get covers for such regular treatment, albeit at a cost.
- You also need to know whether your plan will provide for congenital defects.
- Find out about their pregnancy covers. Usually, you can get covers only after you have had the plan for a year.
