Each plan requires a $50 co-pay for doctor's office visits. Note, there is no age limit or penalty for existing medical issues. In addition to that, VMP™ customers are covered for emergency evacuation & repatriation in cases such as medical assistance in remote locations.

Foreigners can quickly attain coverage and insurance cards from the VMP™ via online. Another advantage of the VMP™ is that medical coverage begins as soon as the insured leaves their home country. The VMP™ medical plans cover individuals from 5 days up to 2 years. For any plan over 90 days, there is automatic renewal without any lapse in coverage if the insured is still in the host country.
