Health insurance policies expand to cover care overseas

Monday, 3 August 2009

Medical tourism facilitator Companion Global Healthcare Inc. announced on Friday a new policy to cover workers whose employer offers a global medical tourism option.

The decision from Companion, based in South Carolina, comes at a time when American companies are looking more to health care abroad to save money as medical costs continue rising.

President of Companion Global Healthcare David Boucher said, "This new coverage raises the comfort level of some employers that are considering a global option for their employees as a way to save dramatically on health care without sacrificing high standards for care".
