I've been receiving lots of calls offering all kind of insurance. I tend to cut it short by saying that I don't believe in insurance and would get some comments from them - some even said I was really brave on not having any sort of insurance.

Well I really didn't believe in one until recently. I find that it's quite crucial to have insurance - at least a health insurance. The problem is I don't know where to get one - in my origin country or here. I don't know if I'll end up in Singapore, or I'll go back to my country, or probably even somewhere else.

I know there's a lot of international insurance agency but when I check with them most of them said the coverage is only in the country where you get the insurance.

I was wondering if anyone here is in the same situation.

When I was in Japan, I know Zurich insurance company can give you a plan that has a coverage no matter wherever you are, but then again there is a price to pay, the premium is quite high.
I haven't done my research either that much here, but my flatmate said she can introduce me to an agent working for Prudential if I'm not mistaken.
I'll let you know when I'll meet her?

Lots of companies offer health insurance. PM me and I'll give you some details.

The things that matter the most to me are:

Emergency evacuation from countires with poor facilities.
Repatriation to home country for major illness.
Coverage while in home country.
