International medical insurance
How companies can cover their staff for overseas contracts
International medical insurance is also available to companies who want to cover their employees for overseas contracts. It's not just a perk - although it's an attractive part of any benefits package - but a sensible precaution, especially if your business can't afford to go without key employees.
If you employ people outside the UK, international medical insurance can do two things for your business: it can be an attractive perk for your employees, but more importantly it can also protect you business. If you can't afford to lose key members of staff for long periods then making sure they get the best possible healthcare is a very sensible policy.
Like individual health insurance, international medical insurance is available to even the smallest firms: BUPA will be happy to talk to you if you have just three employees. You'll also find that insurers offer different packages with differing levels of cover, ranging from basic hospital treatment to all-singing all-dancing policies that cover chronic conditions and even maternity and dental cover.
