Choosing the right health insurance

As a free mover ready to embark on your study abroad journey, selecting the right health insurance is a pivotal step. Given the myriad of options and factors to consider, it might seem daunting at first. However, wearefreemovers simplifies this process with our Insurance Finder service, which is specifically designed to make finding the perfect insurance plan not just easy but also tailored to your specific needs.

Simplifying the search with the Insurance Finder

Our Insurance Finder offers a sleek, straightforward experience designed specifically to meet the needs of a study abroad semester audience. To tailor your search for the perfect health insurance plan, we’ve refined our tool to focus on just three essential filters:

  • Geographical Coverage: Specify the country or region where you’ll be studying to find plans that provide comprehensive medical coverage exactly where it’s needed.
  • Age Requirement: Age impacts insurance needs and premiums. Our tool allows you to filter plans that are suited to your age group, ensuring you get the most relevant coverage without overpaying.
  • Coverage Limit: Medical expenses can be high, and it’s vital to have sufficient coverage. This filter helps you find plans that offer the level of protection you need against potential costs.

How to pick the best option

Once you set the filtering preferences of your choice, you will be presented with a list of results. Now, it is your chance to get the best idea of the insurance plan that fits your needs.

Insurance plans are usually very detailed and not easily digestible. We took the hard work of understanding which conditions are covered in each proposed plan and offered you a simple user interface that clearly and concisely lays out all the most important information you would like to know before choosing a health insurance plan.

This information will appear in the relative listings, giving you a clear understanding of what each plan offers.

  • Insurance provider: The company or organization that offers the insurance plan.
  • Geographical coverage: Defines the areas or locations where the insurance coverage is valid.
  • Age range: Indicates the ages for which the insurance coverage is available.
  • Coverage limit: The maximum amount that the insurance will pay out for covered claims.
  • Cost per month: The amount that the insured must pay on a monthly basis for the coverage.
  • Duration of coverage: The length of time the insurance policy is in effect and provides coverage.
  • Deductible: A deductible is a sum of money that the insured is responsible for paying out-of-pocket before the insurance coverage starts paying for services. If the deductible is specified as “No“, it means that you do not have to pay such an amount to get coverage, hence making the insurance option more appealing in case of coverage is needed.
  • Cancellation policy: The terms under which the insured can cancel the insurance policy.
  • Customer support: The service provided by the insurer to assist customers with their questions and claims, which may be available 24/7 or only during business hours.
