International health insurance for individuals explained

    • What is expat health insurance?

      AXA PPP International’s expatriate-tailored health insurance caters to the needs of those living and working abroad. This type of insurance aims to provide you with similar, and often more extensive cover and support than you may have been used to accessing from a state healthcare system in your home country.

      Consistent healthcare around the world

      Healthcare standards vary significantly across the world. The treatment and medical technology you’ll have access to in Africa, for example, may be less advanced and less accessible when compared to options available in Europe or Asia. So it’s important to know that if you do need medical attention, you can access the care you need at the standard you’d expect. This is where expatriate health insurance can help.

      Our expatriate policies offer you;

      • the opportunity to receive treatment from the hospital of your choice
      • access to our medical provider network of over 11,000 facilities where we can often settle claims directly on your behalf
      • the option of a second medical opinion from an independent team of medical professionals who can review your diagnosis


      I have never had anything other than a positive experience with your company. You settle claims on time, your staff are extraordinarily helpful, friendly and polite, and I would recommend you without hesitation.

      A range of healthcare benefits

      Some countries offer residents access to free or subsidised healthcare through the state system. However, it’s easy to forget that this often isn’t the case in many other countries around the world. Whatever your age, expatriate health insurance can help to relieve the worry of how much a trip to the dentist, doctors or the hospital will cost. From the everyday costs like a quick blood test to transportation in an ambulance, it’s all taken care of. And for the worst case scenarios, our expatriate plans also cover evacuation and repatriation costs in all of our policies.

      Support wherever you are

      With 24/7 service and online member support, you can be sure that we’re here for you at any time of the day and however long it takes. From putting you in touch with a specialist we trust to providing resources to help you stay healthy, we can support you every step of the way. So once you’re covered, wherever you’re based and whenever you move, you can count on our support.
