International Benefits

As more companies deploy employees internationally, their benefits needs have become more complex. The most common International Benefits issues are:

  • Plans covering employees residing within the United States may not provide appropriate levels of coverage for expatriated employees
  • Employees seeking medical care outside the U.S. may be forced to pay expensive medical bills at the time of treatment and submit forms later for reimbursement
  • Employees traveling to foreign countries may not know where to seek medical attention, or they may encounter language barriers

International benefits coverage is available for employees traveling on short business trips or employees assigned to foreign countries. Expatriate group medical, life, disability and business travel accident policies provide coverage and assist employees with medical care worldwide, 24 hours a day; and can handle emergency evacuation and repatriation.
