As you are well aware, healthcare rules and regulations vary from country to country around the world. You may wonder then how people who work at seas, traveling from international port to international port, assure themselves of insurance coverage. The answer is simple - yacht crew insurance.

With yacht crew insurance, also known as marine crew insurance, workers at sea can obtain high quality health coverage without paying unreasonably high costs. Plans are portable, meaning they will be accepted no matter what country you find yourself in. This is extremely important because you do not want to worry about becoming injured and then not being able to get the medical care you need because your policy is too restrictive.

Another benefit of these plans is that they are comprehensive. There are a variety of ways to become ill or injured at sea, and this type of insurance will protect you in all situations. It's nice to know you do not have to wait for an emergency to use your plan. Prescriptions, maternity needs, and preventative care may even be included.

Finally, these plans are flexible. You can buy a short term plan, which is ideal for sailors at sea anywhere from 5 days to 2 years. Or you may opt for long term coverage, which is ideal for trips of longer duration, as well as occasions in which crew members return to their home country and then back to the sea frequently. You can purchase these policies on an annual basis and renew them as often as you like.
