I had a look at Bupa site, and it is very bad - limited information, layout...I just do not see all needed details as mentioned companies give.

Yep, bupa website is too blueish. They must be a bad insurer. Go for AXA PPP, the web layout is so much better and they have more colors, one big picture and vertical menus. Probably the best insurer. Allianz got too much orange and the cover photo is overexposed in shadows.

For the last 7 years I've had IHI (International Health Insurance), which was bought over by BUPA. It still maintains the name "IHI". The older you are, the more it costs of course, so for a $1600 deductible I pay almost US$5000/year. It covers everywhere, including the US (which is what attracted me).

I've used it once when I had an injury in Singapore 6 years ago. No problem with the hospital. I paid the first $1600 only.
