Crew Medical Aid
Hello crewmembers interested in international health insurance.
Some vessels provide health cover for work related accidents whislt others have a health plan in place 24/7 whether at work or leisure. Clearly 24/7 cover is what one needs!
Some vessels pay crewmembers a certain amount to go towards health insurance so the crewmember can buy his/her own individual policy. An individual policy is a good way to go as it is portable from boat to boat and covers you at work, between jobs, if you go home, on vacation etc. you're not going to fall between the cracks beween boats.
There are several plans available geared towards mariners and yacht crew. Use an independent broker not tied to one insurer who can best advise which plan is right for you.
I was crew myself and the 'poster girl' for international health insurance. I am dedicated to helping crew find the best cover. Please contact SEVEN SEAS HEALTH if you would like more information. Anita Warwick firstname.lastname@example.org
