First up, this item from our friends at GeoBlue (one of our travel medical plan vendors):

The last thing you want is for one of your clients to be surprised by their coverage, or lack thereof, while living abroad … it is important to understand options available and how pre-existing coverage may vary between competitors. Preexisting conditions may be covered from day one, pending proof of credible coverage.”

This is indeed a critical point, and one that may get short shrift, especially when dealing with folks not just on a cruise or vacation, but especially those who have decided to move to a different country. Regular readers may recall the strange case of Courtney Wilson, for example.

The GeoBlue folks explain that their ex-pat plans “strive to cover as many pre-existing conditions as possible” (at a price, of course).

So, smothering to consider when contemplating that move abroad.

Hey Alexa, what does ‘co-insurance’ mean?

Yup, the hi-tech folks at Anthem are now offering a direct line from your Alexa device to a number of online services, including:

• Access to their health savings account (HSA) or health reimbursement account (HRA) balance

• Ability to check how close they are to their health plan’s deductible or out-of-pocket amounts

• Help finding definitions for more than 200 insurance terms

And more.

This can even include access to dental plan info (where applicable).

Caveat: Might want to avoid calling out “Hey Alexa, it hurts when I do this.

Just sayin’.
