Outpatient Insurance


In order to benefit from doctors visit cover you need a health insurance plan which offers cover for Outpatient benefits to complement Inpatient benefits.
Outpatient benefits include doctor consultations and medications prescribed by the doctor.
As for Inpatient Hospitalisation some countries such as USA have expensive Outpatient cost; it is advisable to have a suitable health insurance in force with Outpatient benefits to cover the high cost Outpatient can require.
Being covered for doctors visits will give you peace of mind should an unexpected accident or diseases occur.

Outpatient health insurance plans coverage includes visits as well as treatment from a Gp or specialist whether or not Hospitalisation is required.

In comparison to Inpatient expenses, doctor’s visits and prescribed medications are small but occur more often than Inpatient. It is important to determine whether the cost of paying for Outpatient is worth it. For instance in some countries such as Thailand the cost of Outpatient expenses may be small and therefore Outpatient cover may not be crucial.

Apart from typical exclusions found in most Health insurance plans, usual Outpatient benefits include the following:

  • General practitioner and specialist fees
  • Prescribed medications
  • Outpatient Diagnostic tests such as Pet scan, MRI or X-Rays.  
  • Health screenings

Some Outpatient plans may optionally cover the following:

  • Vaccinations
  • Home Nursing
