I see post in many groups about insurance
personally I feel it depends on the individuals situation
in some cases unless there is a major issue needing evacuation back to your home country, or you have kids prone to accidents it may be cheaper to pay out of pocket for healthcare as you go, depending on the country you're in

Americans living abroad are a busy lot, to be sure. More than managing the typical day to day that folks Stateside deal with, we US expats do that and a lot more: There are new rules for living in our new host country. The culture is new. Perhaps there’s a new language to learn.

What Happened to the Baby Boomers Anyway?

We have a new expat from the US who is relocating to DG.
We are looking for a relocation agency to help settle him and his family in, they are quite common in places like Shanghai & Beijing etc.
Any help with this is very much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
