Peace of mind on health
Expats in Tenerife are a diverse group. Some have moved here recently, others have been here for so long they consider it home. Some pick and choose when they are around, others are permanent residents.
For UK retirees looking for a new experience overseas, Tenerife is enduringly popular. In fact, according to the Office for National Statistics, Spain and its islands regularly appear in the top five best-loved destinations for British retirees planning a life abroad. The Eurozone crisis doesn’t appear to have dampened this trend – as retirees are not entering the job market, they are less affected by the economic slowdown.
But whether it is work or retirement that brings an expat to Tenerife, there is one thing that is consistent: everyone wants peace of mind on health for them and their family.
Experiencing a sudden change to your health – particularly if you have been diagnosed with a serious illness – is often a distressing time. It affects everything: the lifestyle you are able to lead, your relationships and your emotional well being. Finding yourself in a country that is not ‘home’ and where you might not be familiar with the healthcare system can add to the worry.
But this need not be the case.
Many expats choose International Private Medical Insurance for greater peace of mind on their health. In case something does go wrong, it gives the extra reassurance that any treatment received is consistent, reliable, and of the highest standard. It also gives access to specialist centres of excellence abroad, should they be needed.
Bupa International’s Worldwide Health Options Plan is a flexible product, with a range of add-on options to create a plan that is just right for you. For example, modular options include cover for prescribed medicines, cancer screening and even cover for pre-existing conditions.
