There is a growing number of private medical insurances to cater to the more discerning needs of the upwardly mobile. The industry is becoming increasingly specialised and a number of private insurance companies cater exclusively to expat needs. Insurances typically cover people for a wide variety of illnesses according to the healthcare system of the country.
Depending on the coverage you chose, you can opt to cover yourself for hospitalisation, MRI, emergency dental treatment, outpatient care, chronic illness management, pregnancy, evacuation and repatriation.
With so much to deal with before leaving your home country, (taxes, moving house, paperwork etc.) the careful planning of your expatriation to Mumbai is an essential step. As far as healthcare is concerned, your local social security scheme won’t be accompanying you to your host country and, once abroad, you might be surprised by the care system you find in India. So, before leaving, make sure you have appropriate cover!
