Technology continues to reshape the way we live, work, and travel. It’s time the insurance industry caught up. Introducing Insured Nomads: Health insurance for the modern company, remote worker, expat and traveler.

The Genesis — A Personal Encounter with Global Living and Insurance Hurdles

“The world of work has continuously shifted over the decades, yet insurance has adapted slowly to these changes. We knew that change was required to meet the needs for the future of work. This brought about the birth of Insured Nomads.” – Andrew Jernigan, Co-founder, Insured Nomads

The story of Insured Nomads is deeply rooted in the personal experiences of its founding team. The founder, Andrew Jernigan, was a global citizen living and working in various parts of the world. His journey led him to witness the gaps and inadequacies in the traditional insurance system, especially for those with a nomadic lifestyle. Paired alongside Andrew is a team of industry leaders from the giants in the international insurance sector, including Allen Koski, Brett Estep, and Mo Buglow.

As an expatriate, Andrew experienced the shortcomings of global health insurance firsthand. He noted that while insurance products were available, they were outdated, not user-friendly, and often left the insured paying more out of pocket than the insurance company itself.

It was these experiences that ignited the idea for Insured Nomads — a tech-enabled insurance provider designed for the modern company, remote worker, expat, and traveler.
