HTH Worldwide Ranked Number One Individual Expat Insurance Provider in U.S. by Medibroker International.

RADNOR, Pa. -- At a recent presentation to international health insurance brokers from around the world, Medibroker International announced the results of its independent Insurer Ratings program, and ranked HTH Worldwide the number one individual expat insurance provider in the U.S. and sixth in the world.

"HTH is pleased to be regarded so highly by industry experts. Although our Global Citizen product is relatively new to the expat market, it has been very well received by the globalist community," said Angelo Masciantonio, CEO of HTH Worldwide, USA.

Expatriate health plans ranked by Medibroker International are specially designed to serve the millions of people whose personal lifestyles transcend borders:

--30 million people live as expatriates working outside their country of citizenship

--4 million U.S. and U.K. retirees reside abroad, leading a trend that analysts say is becoming a "massive new migration"

--Globalists log 700 million international business and leisure trips each year

Ideally, these plans offer comprehensive benefits and international medical assistance services all around the world.

"The Global Citizen plan from HTH Worldwide redefines expatriate health insurance by offering much more than insurance protection. Global Citizen is our top pick in the U.S. because it offers a complete health care solution. Beyond the rich insurance benefits, members gain access to global health and safety tools that help identify elite doctors and hospitals, in 175 countries," said J. Leslie Smith, Founder and CEO of Medibroker International.

Award winning Medibroker International is an Independent Medical Health Insurance Broker Consultancy offering a free quotation and insurance advice service worldwide to expatriates and those living and working overseas.

The Medibroker International rating system, which has received great acclaim by the healthcare industry, is based on ten rating criteria:
1. Service to Customer
 2. Service to Independent Broker Advisors and Intermediaries
 3. Price Competitiveness in the Global Marketplace
 4. Quality of Benefits
 5. Quality and Clarity of Literature/Brochure Pack and
 Application Forms
 6. Application Process
 7. Product Provider/Insurer Strength
 8. Website
 9. Payment and Currency Options
 10. Country Cover and Global Regional Options for Cover

Medibroker International's HTH rating was based on HTH's successful Global Citizen plan for American expatriates wishing to return home and retain their same health insurance plan. The Global Citizen plan is provided by HTH Worldwide and underwritten by UniCare.

"The whole concept of being a HIPAA compliant product where the American expatriate family can seamlessly transfer back to a domestic U.S. plan is unique in today's market. Therefore HTH has taken the first mover advantage in the niche U.S. expatriate worldwide market. It protects them when they go and protects them when they come home. It's a blue chip product which is not necessarily price sensitive," said Smith.

The Global Citizen health plan is designed to support the international lifestyles of those who travel from the U.S. for extended periods of business, leisure and study. Global Citizen combines comprehensive benefits with a new generation of medical assistance services, including an impressive array of online tools used to identify, access and pay for quality healthcare all around the world.
