General Exclusions in an Expat health Insurance Plan

Many international health insurance plans have exclusions for which the policyholder will not be reimbursed. Generally, those exclusions concern pre-existing conditions, therefore it is beneficial for you to talk to an insurance adviser regarding the best options for your situation. Our staff is readily available to discuss different options and possibilities to minimize the exclusions in your international health insurance plan.

In most cases, international health insurance companies will not cover any pre-existing condition known to the policyholder unless it was previously discussed and agreed upon by the insurance company. General exclusions for the policyholder that will not be reimbursed by most international health insurance include:

  • Cosmetic surgery or treatment (unless previously approved by the insurer).
  • Obesity surgery i.e. gastric bypass surgery.
  • AIDS or HIV related diseases - However, these will be covered if it is proven that the condition was contracted due to a blood transfusion after commencement of the insurance, or as a result of an accident during the course of your normal occupation.
  • Conditions contracted due to the abuse of alcohol, drugs, or medications will not be covered.
  • Any intentionally self-inflicted bodily injuries - i.e. suicide attempts.
  • Conditions arising due to contraception including sterilization.
