Education is a major concern for those who are starting a new life abroad. In most cases it will be expats who want to make sure that their children go to good schools, but in the case of teachers, they want to make sure that they are working at schools that offer the right level of benefits for them. For some, going to work at an international school means that there is nothing to think about, because they find that good quality healthcare is included as part of their benefits package, but other teachers at international schools may have to arrange their own.
Whether you are a teacher or you are running an educational establishment, Expat Health Group is on hand to help you. We can make sure that you have the right health insurance for international schools that gives you the right standard of health cover so that in the event of an emergency you do not need to worry – you can get the treatment that you need without the fear of a large invoice that you may not be able to pay.
Why is health insurance important?
Even if you are based in a country where healthcare is free, this generally applies only to local people. In addition, there are many parts of the world where the standard of basic, free healthcare is quite poor and to access the more comprehensive and modern facilities you need to pay. Private healthcare is quite expensive, no matter where you are in the world. Even a one night stay in a hospital can leave you thousands of dollars out of pocket. The cost of either a group or individual policy is a small price to pay when you realise just how much it could save you.
When teachers are looking for a position with a good school, one of the things that they consider is their contract. They want to know that in the event of an emergency they can rely on the healthcare package that is in place. If your health insurance policy only offers basic cover it can be hard to get the best teachers to accept a job because they know that they will still have to pay for further health coverage to make up any shortfall.
