How the Expatriate Medical Plan Pays Benefits
The annual deductible is waived in certain CignaLinks locations, reducing your overall costs. See `CignaLinks® Network Care Outside the United States" for more information.
The Expatriate Medical Plan pays the full cost for preventive care received outside the U.S. or in-network in the U.S., including physical exams and recommended screenings. Inpatient hospital expenses received outside the U.S. or in-network in the U.S. are also fully covered after a per-admission copayment. For most other medical costs, after you satisfy the annual deductible, you pay your share of medical costs through coinsurance until you reach the annual coinsurance maximum.
