What Does Expat Health Insurance Psychiatric Benefit Include?

It’s not just physical injury and illness that expats need to worry about, the stress of moving to a new location, cultural changes, language barriers, etc. can take a toll on your mental health. It is common for an expat to underestimate just how much change and cultural differences they will have to get use to when moving abroad, it is easy to see how relocating to another country can be a very stressful situation for anyone – whether it’s your first time or tenth!

Stress, depression, mental illness, etc. can have just as much of a debilitating effect on your work and professional life as having a physical injury or illness, it is important to look after both your mental and physical health.

Psychiatric cover on most expat health insurance plans will be available on both an in-patient and out-patient basis, however there is often a waiting period before coverage will commence. While it will vary between international medical insurance providers, generally there are strict cover limits enforced either with a maximum lifetime benefit or a number of consultations/visits per year.
