Why international health insurance?
Once upon a time, it was only the major corporates that ventured into global markets. Today, many smaller organisations are operating internationally. In fact, a study predicts that there will be a further 50% growth in international assignments by 20201.
Living and working overseas can bring many benefits to both your company and your employees. It can also pose challenges – and that’s where we can help:
- Support your duty of care
You have a responsibility to take care of your staff. We can help support your obligations and avoid penalties by arranging appropriate international health insurance cover, so your staff can access quality medical care when they need it.
- Complex cover; simplified
International Private Medical Insurance (IPMI) can be complex. We can help you understand the impact of foreign legislation on your scheme, and help you source compliant solutions.
- Get the best from your benefits
We can help you to maximise your international benefits, including international health insurance, whilst ensuring you retain your key staff.
