Do you often travel around the world? Do you want or need medical treatments outside Singapore? Do you want to protect yourself against accidents abroad?
UEX offers local, international coverage and travel insurance. This article will help you understand which coverage fits you best.
A local coverage mainly covers you in Singapore. If you need to see a doctor or to be hospitalized outside Singapore, your coverage will be limited.
At UEX, local coverage covers you for repatriation to your home country or for medical evacuation outside Singapore.
If you have an international coverage, you will be covered for consultations or hospitalizations in other countries, regardless of the emergency of the intervention. For example, if you want to consult a specialist in your home country, your expenses will be covered up to a certain point, depending on the coverage chosen.
However, international coverage usually has geographic restrictions, so be aware when you sign-up for your policy.

A travel insurance covers you for all the risks related to your travels.
It does not only cover you for your urgent medical expenses but also for non-urgent consultations outside Singapore. For example, if you are injured while trekking on the Mount Kawa Ijen, your care will be covered up to the amount specified in your contract.
In addition to medical expenses, your travel insurance will cover delays, loss of luggage, credit card theft …
Travel insurance can also cover you for certain sports such as parachute jumping or scuba diving under certain conditions. In addition, it may include public liability for compensations and legal fees. For example, if you are legally responsible for an accidental injury, the death of a third party, or damages to the property of a third party.
