Why International Health Insurance while in Africa. Contractors, engineers, labor, third country nationals, design and technology professionals in all countries of the African continent, need access to quality health care regardless of your locale. Depending on your location throughout the continent, you may be in areas of little or not medical facilities, maybe out dated equipment or technology.
Either way your international medical policy should pay for your medical care even if you are flown to the nearest locations or country, even if back to your home country. Make sure your international medical company provides emergency medical evacuation coverage, which pays for air transport in the event of an emergency. You will fly you to the nearest location which can properly care for your condition.
If you happen to be in an area with medical care and facilities, but have no idea which is the best or maybe westernized, your company should provide you with an app to show you which doctors if any were trained in the west, speak english, where they attended medical school, and which doctors and hospitals surpass western medicine quality control.
