Long-Term Insurance:
for Trips Over 12 Months

Those of us called to serve the Lord as full-time missionaries in a foreign land are no doubt empowered by the Spirit to endure and thrive under extreme circumstances. Relocating yourself and a family is a big job, not to mention one filled with many uncertainties. Our hope is to make getting missionary insurance for yourself and your family a simple experience. That way, you can cross “get insurance” off your To Do list and focus on the work ahead of you.

Our experienced Client Advisors have chosen the major medical international insurance plans you’ll find here. These long-term plans have an emphasis on protecting against the risks often encountered abroad. That’s why the plans include maternity benefits alongside emergency medical evacuation benefits. They provide career and long-term missionaries with affordable major medical benefits, emergency medical evacuation and repatriation coverage as well as at-home benefits for your return trips home on furlough.

Start by reviewing the insurance benefits and brochure to decide which plan suits you best. Then get a quote and apply. After your application is reviewed and accepted, the insurance carrier will email you an ID card, or cards, and a confirmation notice.

Let’s get started. Choose insurance for your long-term trip from the options below:
