GeoBlue Navigator for Students, Faculty, Missionaries & Maritime Crews…


A Snapshot into the GeoBlue Navigator Plan Series

GeoBlue International Medical Insurance Plans for ExpatsAs global lifestyles emerge, the demand for comprehensive international health insurance has grown rapidly.  In response to this demand, a new generation of superior health plans is now available to serve expatriates and their families.  This is a positive development for American expatriates who have historically had limited choice when it comes to coverage.  Existing insurance options have often missed the mark because of limited benefits, long waiting periods, harsh exclusions, per-certification penalties, lack of portability and other hidden gotchas.  GeoBlue’s Navigator series of plans are unique in that they are specifically tailored to people who fall into one of four expat categories.  Special rates and benefits structures are incorporated into the Navigator for those who are Students, Faculty, Missionaries and Maritime Crew Members.
