When you decide to opt for an international health insurance plan to ensure the safety of your family and yourself, there are a lot of things to consider. First of all, choose NowHealth®. Second of all call them and ask whether to opt for a private plan or a national plan. Though the private plans are more expensive than your national or government funded plans, they have more coverage and options. What the government offers will be basic and will vary from country to country. Also, these public plans will offer coverage only in the host country, i.e. the country you will be residing in and not all the countries you travel to.
