CHIS - Travelling and living abroad

Insurance cover provided by the CHIS Normal Cover is world-wide.

Before leaving

  • Ensure to bring your insurance card and the cards of family members accompanying you.
  • For ambulatory treatment, you'll be reimbursed on the basis of a detailed and paid invoice.
  • In the event of hospitalisation, UNIQA can settle the invoice directly with the hospital (on request from the hospital).

Services provided by UNIQA Assistance:

  • Help to find the doctor or hospital that fits best to your pathology

For hospitalisation in USA, call:

to avoid paying a deposit for hospital admission, and you will significantly reduce the cost of your hospitalisation.

Important concerning hospitalisation in the USA: even if the hospital insists, make no deposit or payment to the hospital yourself, as you will no longer benefit from the reduction of costs negotiated by the UNIQA partner in the US.
