Medical Insurance for Israelis Living in Latin America

Assessing your needs in the move from Israel to a developing country

 Relocating to a developing country requires a serious assessment of costs and practicalities involved in maintaining the higher Israeli standards of living. Israelis relocating to Latin America – whether temporarily or permanently, sent there by an employer, on a personal or business mission, for family reasons or for other motivations – all share one central challenge: the need to plan in advance a new life in foreign countries in which information can be hard to come by.

Indeed, when moving to developed countries, it is easy to get a sense of the local cost of living, data regarding anticipated local taxes and other aspects of life from online information and conversation with local residents. In making a move to a developing country, on the other hand, it is harder to obtain data regarding the new environment because existing information generally reflects the local population’s way of life; Westerners might face a completely different financial picture in maintaining the same standard of living they are accustomed to. Therefore, understanding the situation from afar is difficult and often misleading.

Adjusting medical services to Israeli needs

To add to the confusion, different health systems operate in different countries with dissimilar standards, guidelines and legislation. In fact, the health systems of most Latin American countries differ drastically from the Israeli system; many local services are highly inferior.

When moving to Latin America, it is critical for the health insurance policy you purchase to cover emergency medical air evacuation to locations with advanced medical infrastructure, as does the DavidShield plan. DavidShield operates through local service providers to perform a rapid medical assessment and evacuation for further treatment, enabling professional service even in hard-to-reach locations where the medical jargon is in Spanish.

Moreover, DavidShield’s medical policy includes a variety of routine and emergency health services, including treatments, lab tests, hospitalizations, surgeries, doctors’ visits and others.
