Insurance coverage in the Cayman Islands

Hello everyone,

Moving abroad requires adequate insurance coverage.

What type of insurance expatriates need the most in the Cayman Islands: health, house or liability insurance? All of them? Do they come as a package?

Are there other insurance options to consider like critical illness, damage or property insurance?

Is it better to purchase insurance from an expat insurance specialist or from a local insurance provider?

And what about insurance costs?

Premiums for Medical insurance and "destitution insurance" (pension contributions) are deducted from pay packets. A while back, and on another expat website (link below), I reminisced about the days when we used to receive our pay packets without any deductions at all - but those happy days are far behind us now. Property insurance is not compulsory unless one has a mortgage. We had a big hurricane come through here in 2004, but insurance covering damage from storms is quite expensive. My wife and I have our house insured against fire, but not hurricanes any more.

Any advice on US insurance ...Medicare
supplemental for Cayman healthcare or
just yearly Cayman healthcare for retiree's.
