Who is eligible for coverage?
Care Expatriate international health insurance coverage is tailored to the needs of individual and business travelers as well as to those on business assignments worldwide or persons emigrating worldwide. This health insurance can be taken out for long-term trips (stays abroad for at least 6 months up to a maximum of 5 years) up to a maximum entry age of 74 years old.
What are the insurance benefits?
The benefits cover outpatient, inpatient and dental treatment, as well as preventive check-ups, remedies and medical aids with all licensed physicians worldwide at the customary local fee rates. In Germany, the maximum duration of coverage is 5 years. Outside Germany, you can extend your policy as often as you wish until you reach the maximum age. When taking out initial coverage for 5 years with a geographic scope outside of Germany, there is a one-time guarantee of acceptance for a follow-up policy up to a maximum of 5 further years (Care Expatriate Comfort / Care Expatriate Premium). Irrespective of any existing conditions, coverage is guaranteed for newborns.
We recommend business travelers and those on business assignments abroad take out a daily sickness allowance policy ("Care Cash"). Care Cash daily sickness allowance coverage compensates for loss of income due to prolonged illness. This coverage can be applied for while applying for the health insurance.
What does the insurance cost?
The monthly premium for Care Expatriate international insurance depends on one’s age. For a 28 year old person, for example, the health insurance costs €58.00 per month for a stay worldwide except in the US, CA, MX. You will find a list of premium rates in the Table of Premium Overview in the following pages.

To supplement your international health insurance, we also recommend taking out a "Care Protector" accident and liability insurance policy.
