Short Term Health Insurance
Ideal for acquiring your Visa and Cedula.
In order for expats to apply and receive their visas and cedulas, it is a requirement that you have health insurance.
The problem is that the IESS (public health insurance) and most private health insurance companies require that you have a visa/cedula in order to apply.
We have negotiated a special, limited health insurance plan with one of the companies we work with that will allow our clients to contract a short, 3 month contract in order for you to acquire your visa/cedula.
The idea is that after your 3 month contract, you move to a public or another private health insurance provider for a long term contract with much better coverage.

Basic Health Insurance Plan Information
There are additional benifits that apply to this health insurance plan that we can go over with you. But it is important to keep in mind that this plan is really only meant to meet the requirement in order for you to acquire your legal documents. After you have your documents, it would be best to move you to our Intermediate Expense Health Insurance or Major Medical Health Insurnace plan.
