Emergency Medical Evacuation …

This is very important coverage and should be included in all international plans! Domestic health insurance and workers compensation does not provide coverage for emergency air evacuations.

  1. Your medical condition warrants immediate transportation from the place where you are located (due to inadequate medical facilities) to the nearest adequate medical facility where medical treatment can be obtained.
  2. After being treated at a local medical facility, your medical condition warrants transportation with a qualified medical attendant to your Home Country to obtain further medical treatment or to recover.

How the CIGna Global Plan Works:

Our wide range of deductible and cost share options allow you to tailor your plan to suit your needs.

You can choose to have a deductible and or cost share on the Cigna international Medical Insurance and or international Outpatient options.  No deductible applies to inpatient cash benefits or newborn care benefits.

You will be responsible for paying the amount of any deductible and cost share directly to the hospital, clinic or medical practitioner.  Cigna Global will let you know what this amount is, if you select both a deductible and cost share, the amount you will need to pay due to the deductible is calculated before the amount you will need to pay due to the cost share.  The out of pocket maximum is the maximum amount of cost share any beneficiary would have to pay per period of cover.
