Personalise your plan

To satisfy all your needs, we propose health plans which are worldwide, reliable and flexible: Hospitalisation, Global 80, Global 100 and Global 100 Plus. Each plan can be shaped by adding optional covers and choosing from several options.

Three geographical areas of residence to suit your needs

To better define your health plan, A+ International delimits three geographical areas of residence; premiums are set according to where you live.

First, you select your area of residence at the time of inception of policy:

  • Area 1: Worldwide (excluding Hong Kong/China and USA/Canada)
  • Area 2: Hong Kong and China
  • Area 3: USA and Canada

Next, you choose your geographical coverage for treatment: a worldwide cover, with or without the USA and Canada.

Two geographical cover areas

If you opt for a cover without the USA and Canada, we cover medical expenses incurred due to medical emergencies whilst visiting these countries for temporary stays of up to 90 days in aggregate per year.
