Expatriate Groups Corporate Health Insurance policy provides a comprehensive package of benefitsm just in the same way our International Health Insurance does. However, in this circumstance it’s to enable HR managers to centralise a number of essential products that modern-day companies require for protecting staff and managing risk.
One product that provides 24/7 Health; Business Travel; Income Replacement; EAP: managed under one central contract.
Corporate Healthcare for Expat Employees
International healthcare insurance for your expatriate employees, no matter where they are in the world. With 24 hour / 365 day assistance, no restrictions on hospitals or clinics and comprehensive benefits, tailored to your corporate needs, Expatriate Group is best placed to ensure that your workforce obtains the best treatment and is provided with total peace of mind.
Business Travel Insurance
Designed especially by Expatriate Group, our International Travel Insurance policy allows companies to cover their employees under a single policy for all trips overseas. Cover can either provide a specific aggregate number of days or a ‘multi-trip’ policy provides all employees the freedom to travel as frequently as they need without restriction.
The cover provides health, evacuation, baggage, travel delay, third party liability, loss of money, and passport help.
Global Income Protection
Expatriate Group policies provide your employees with Income Replacement Insurance as standard. This provides a supplementary policy to ensure that financial aid is available to assist with costs if you are no longer able to work.
Your capability to work could change drastically as a result of an accident or an illness. Depending on the severity of the accident you could end up permanently disabled and a long way from home. Protecting yourself and your family during times when a primary wage earner is unable to work can save a multitude of extra stress.
Employee Assistance Programme
Employee Assistance Programmes (EAPs) are employee benefit programmes intended to help employees deal with personal problems that might adversely impact their work performance, health, and wellbeing. Our EAP includes assessment, short-term counselling, and referral services for employees and their immediate family – wherever they are in the world.
Expatriate Group’s focus is to deliver peace of mind and provide the best comprehensive corporate insurance for expat employees. This is reflected in our 3 key international medical insurance plans, which offer varying levels of healthcare coverage to suit your personal circumstances and budget.
