If you have a global health plan from William Russell, you’re covered for the treatment of COVID-19 as you would be for any other viral infection. This is provided that the plan you have selected covers the treatment and you don’t have personal medical exclusions on your certificate of insurance that would apply.

Whilst international health insurance prices vary a lot, they are generally more expensive than local/domestic policies. But, local health insurance only gives you cover in a single country. The major benefit to an international policy is that you have cover in multiple countries as well as cover for emergency medical evacuation.
