AXA XL in Iberia launches expatriate insurance solution in partnership with AXA - Global Healthcare
Madrid, Spain - May 07, 2019
AXA XL Insurance has partnered with AXA - Global Healthcare to launch a new healthcare insurance solution for Spanish and Portuguese companies with employees on expatriate assignments.
The coverage is designed to allow clients to either choose standard plans or fully bespoke packages tailored to their specific needs. Regardless of how the coverage is structured, clients benefit from an experienced global account management team while employees and their families have access to first level medical resources across the world.
Jose Luis Gómez Banovio, Head of Accident & Health, Iberia at XL Catlin, now part of AXA XL, a division of AXA, noted: “While Spanish and Portuguese businesses operating internationally already benefit from AXA XL’s personal accident coverage and business travel protection, expanding our suite of solutions to now include international private medical insurance will help them ensure their employees have the protection and support they want and need wherever they are in the world.”
Tom Wilkinson, CEO, AXA - Global Healthcare, commented: “We recently conducted a survey on the needs of expatriate employees . When asked what benefits they would most like to receive, they most often cited international health insurance and housing assistance. Their employers also stressed that healthcare was a priority, with more than two-thirds expressing concerns about international assignments failing due to physical or mental health issues. By combining AXA XL’s Accident & Health insurance expertise and AXA - Global Healthcare’s global capabilities, we are now able to provide these employees with the support and healthcare services they need and want, wherever they are in the world.”
José Ramón Morales, Country Leader Iberia for AXA XL’s insurance operations, added: “New technologies have enabled new ways of working, but for many businesses there still is no substitute for face-to-face interactions. In today’s economy, many Spanish and Portuguese companies need to send employees abroad to help translate their global ambitions into local strategy. That’s why I’m delighted we can now support our clients by providing expatriate employees and their families access to high-quality healthcare wherever business takes them.”
