BasicPlus Health Insurance has entered into an agreement with Companion Global Healthcare, to include a network of accredited, overseas hospitals in its limited benefit health insurance plans.

The agreement means those enrolled in BasicPlus’ FlexMed and BasicPlus limited benefit plans have the option of seeking surgery and other covered services at hospitals in Companion Global Healthcare’s network. All of the network’s hospitals hold the Joint Commission International (JCI) accreditation.

FlexMed and BasicPlus members treated overseas will receive Companion Global Healthcare’s concierge medical travel services, including assistance with scheduling appointments and arranging travel.

Chuck Green, CEO of BasicPlus, said: Since our members have fixed benefit maximums, the inclusion of Companion Global Healthcare’s option into our products allows members to limit their out-of-pocket payments while availing themselves to JCI-accredited hospitals in foreign locations.
