Cignal Global Medical Benefits Abroad BrochurecignacolourlogoMedical Benefits Abroad – As we continue to grow as a Global Society, traveling, working, and living outside the borders of your home country is just about as common as vacation travel. Medical Benefits Abroad by Cigna Global health insurance was designed to cover those who do exactly that travel on International business abroad. It is no secret that the quality of health care varies dramatically around the world. When you work in another country it may be exciting but the level of care in your new country may be lacking and not to the standards of your home country. In addition as foreign nationals you more than likely will not have access nor be entitled to any subsidized healthcare. It is important to consider a International health plan that will provide for your health care needs should the need arise.
