Health insurance is a service that you pay for, to cover the costs of any kind of treatment for injury or illness, across a network of hospitals and healthcare facilities. You may take a health plan yourself or be covered by your company’s insurance plan. The plan is purchased by paying monthly premiums, which correspond to the amount you are covered for.

Select the healthcare insurance plan that is right for you. This will vary depending on your age (pay for higher coverage as you get older), individual or family, living in your country of origin or as an expatriate (needing repatriation facilities and guest visitations).

With the rising costs of good medical care, it is prudent to have some form of health insurance that will guarantee expert care without affecting your pocket. At Cigna, we also go beyond offering comprehensive cover for any treatment, to proactive health management and support. We have also made it easy for you to find good healthcare near you through a handy app.
