Expats and Cambodian Insurance for Healthcare

Medical Health Insurance Cambodia Expats

Select Medical/ Health Insurance

Selecting the “Best health insurance in Cambodia” that meets the specific needs for expatriates and local residents can be a complicated task.

Insurance coverage in this region is less widespread compared to other areas globally. Although seeking advice from friends and family is an option, the fact remains that insurance coverage among Cambodian residents (expats or locals) is so infrequent that obtaining concrete answers is challenging.

There are currently several international insurance companies represented through various intermediaries and local Cambodian health insurance providers. International insurers are known for their reliability, yet they lack a physical presence. Conversely, local insurers possess an in-depth understanding of the Cambodian environment but have not yet achieved international acclaim.

Private Insurance Cover

What are the hallmarks of quality medical insurance in Cambodia?

  • Accident & Hospitalization Coverage: It should cover accidents, which can incur significant costs in international medical groups or top-tier hospitals. It goes without saying that hospitalization for Illness should be well covered too.
  • Cancer Treatment: With the increasing prevalence of cancer, the insurance should ensure coverage for cancer treatments.
  • Affordability: The insurance should be affordable, reflecting the relatively low cost of living in Cambodia.
  • Global Coverage (full worldwide!): Despite local affordability, the insurance should offer worldwide coverage, catering to those with the financial means to travel internationally.
  • Direct Billing: It should provide direct billing options with renowned hospitals.
  • Genuine office in Cambodia: The insurance provider should have a dedicated team and offices in Cambodia to offer direct consultation with professionals familiar with the local context.
  • Prestigious Insurance partners: The insurance provider should be backed by reputable international insurance companies.

By focusing on essential coverage and eliminating superfluous elements, it is possible to maintain a premium that is both economical and tailored to the needs of Individuals in Cambodia.
