BOSTON, May 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- International Citizens Insurance (internationalinsurance.com), a leading international broker, celebrated record growth of 150% YOY in 2019. Taking advantage of current market trends and leveraging strong partnerships, they have expanded efforts to provide elite products and customer service to their international clientele.
That growth has continued into 2020. The company is reporting that, today, more than ever, international citizens, nomads, and expats need a trusted advisor to guide them in finding suitable coverage during the current coronavirus crisis. According to Joe Cronin, President, International Citizens Insurance: "We are finding more expats are choosing to stay abroad longer, rather than come home. Individuals who did not have coverage previously are now deciding it is time to purchase a quality international plan."
International Citizens Insurance's unique comparison engine enables foreigners and expatriates to research, quote, compare, and purchase international health and expatriate insurance from a variety of international carriers, such as GeoBlue, Cigna, Aetna, and other recognized leaders in expatriate health insurance benefits.
About 9 million Americans live abroad, an increase of more than 100% from 1999, according to State Department estimates. The number of U.S. citizens traveling outside the country for business and leisure jumped by 7.6% percent last year, reaching a total of 93 million according to the U.S. Commerce Department's National Travel and Tourism Office. All of these individuals need some type of international medical insurance to ensure they are adequately covered for emergencies and general health care.
"We educate customers on their options and walk them through the comparison process, assist with choosing the best plan for their specific needs, and guide them through the application process," said Mr. Cronin. "GeoBlue, in particular, is an excellent partner. Not only do they have great products but their service and benefits are industry-leading, so our customers are happy with what they have purchased."
"GeoBlue is known for providing exceptional member service and medical assistance to both international travelers and expatriates," said Jill Cappelli, Regional Sales Director of Individual Products for GeoBlue.
