Healthcare International has been specialising in international health insurance for more than 25 years. We offer medical insurance plans to you, expats of all nationalities, no matter where in the world you are from, or where you are now calling home.
Often local medical care is off-limits or very expensive to uninsured arrivals in a new country, and lengthy recovery or serious illness can leave your family with bills they can’t afford to pay. Healthcare International offers a range of health insurance plans to suit any needs or budget. Because we are the experts in this market, we know what is important to people living away from home and how difficult it can be to find cover that suits your international life.
You can get an online quote in seconds and our friendly staff are always available to explain our policies based on the plan you select, your age and country of residence. When you buy medical insurance from HCI we don’t just provide great insurance, but back it up with a first class, responsive service at any time of day, on any day of the year, wherever you are. Many of our staff are expats themselves so they know the challenges you face, and they speak a wide range of languages.
Our plans cover everything from GP visits to lab tests, complex surgical procedures, dental and optical costs, wellness checks and maternity. Get a quote now.
Your family’s financial security is a must, especially if your work takes you all far from home. When you buy a life insurance policy from Healthcare International you can be assured that the people who matter most to you will be provided for no matter what happens or where you are.
Many standard life insurance policies are invalidated by a move to a new country but Healthcare International designs everything with the needs of expats and international travellers at heart so you can buy once and safely put it from your mind.
Not all countries or employers are equal when it comes to security standards. Living abroad is not an easy thing and residents from abroad are more vulnerable to risk, especially parents considering their children’s wellbeing. HCI understands that you need to put appropriate protection in place, and is well established in providing that protection.
Whether you need a whole life (permanent) policy or term life insurance to cover a certain period such as a temporary job abroad or the period of a mortgage or school fees, HCI always guarantees affordable rates. Get a quote online in just a few seconds now.
As a frequent traveller or someone who lives away from their home country, you know how important travel insurance is. Accidents or sickness can strike at any time and you can lessen the risk and make sure you have access to the medical facilities you need by taking out travel insurance.
Healthcare International travel insurance is targeted solely at the expat traveller, and covers a great range of eventualities from health problems to lost luggage and cancelled or missed flights, no matter what country you’re in or where you make your home. It’s quick and easy to find the right policy and get covered straight away.
The UK is the best place in the world to come as an international student. If you’re planning to come to study or you’re already here, you really need a personal health, travel and property insurance policy that’s tailored for the international student life.
We know that international students are on a tight budget so we offer very affordable health, travel and property insurance with features that are perfect for someone coming from abroad to take up a place in education. No matter what kind of student you are – learning a language, mastering a technical skill, working on a master’s programme or internship or simply gaining your first degree - don’t let the unexpected ruin your UK studies.
While the UK has very high standards of medical care, costs can be beyond the budgets of many students. And while medical expenses are possibly the biggest risk, they’re not the only one. Non-refundable student fees, lost luggage or passports, stolen or damaged property or the cost of returning home in an emergency are all covered with HCI. If you take out your policy before you come we’ll even insure your travel before you start your course.
If you’re the parent of an international student, the right insurance will give you the peace of mind of knowing that if the anything does happen there’s a UK insurer looking after them.

As the employer of staff going overseas you have a duty of care. When you grow as a business and develop international markets you want your employees to be able to concentrate on their work as they travel. Staff safety is your priority as part of your employers’ liability and HCI can help.
Our group insurance plans are adaptable for your company’s needs. We offer group health, travel and life policies, whichever is suitable for your business. You can get flexible cover for your staff with HCI whether it’s corporate insurance you need, or just a small group programme for a handful of staff.
At HCI we know that a claim is the most important interaction you will have with us. Having to make a claim means something has happened that you wish hadn’t, and requires a quick response.
That’s why we have an emergency helpline that operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and a team of staff ready to help no matter what the situation might be. You’ll be able to talk to the same person each time you call.
Whether you’re claiming for bills already paid or seeking approval for treatment you need in the future, we want you to leave the costs to us so you can focus on getting well again.
We only work with expats. The expat community is our audience and we love taking good care of them. Living overseas can be exciting but it also has its challenges and risks, so you will want the peace of mind that comes from knowing that if the unexpected happens, you are covered.
Other insurance companies hesitate to insure the everyday realities of international living, such as moving away from your country of citizenship, but HCI is built specifically to deal with them.
Medical insurance: Accidents or ill health can strike at any time and accessing the best medical treatment can be difficult and expensive if you don’t have expat health insurance in place. Don’t let your health ruin your expat life experience. Get a quote today.
