The benefits of nib global health insurance
Access to a network of private hospitals, doctors and specialists
You are free to choose from any listed hospital to receive your required treatment. Plus, nib will pay for companion accommodation so your loved one can be there for you when you need them most.
Pay no out-of-pocket medical expenses for eligible hospitalisation
Focus on getting better and leave us to settle the hospital bill for you. International Health Insurance entitles you to pay nothing out-of-pocket for all eligible, pre-approved treatments.
Emergency medical cover while you travel
We want you to make the most of the time in your new home, but if you require medical treatment when you're travelling outside of your region and in a country we cover, you will still be covered.
Add a travel insurance extension
If you and your family are planning to travel, either on business or holidays, while living overseas, the travel insurance extension will provide comprehensive cover for things such as lost luggage, delayed or cancelled flights, personal belongings and many other eventualities.
