Expats encouraged to make healthcare a priority

Looking after your health is important at the best of times, but when you're considering moving abroad it's vital to make sure that you are going to be provided for in your new country of residence.

Leading health experts BUPA are urging expats to make healthcare a priority before they make their move, especially if they have pre-existing medical conditions which are going to need ongoing treatment, which can prove expensive without adequate cover.

"Healthcare systems overseas differ enormously - in many countries there is no state healthcare provision for expats and a routine visit to a doctor can be very expensive. Investing in international health insurance means you can set off safe in the knowledge that whatever happens, your health is protected," a spokesperson for the company commented.
