Don’t put a price on your employees’ health.
You can’t put a price on your employees’ health. With language barriers, unfamiliar ailments and dramatic variances in international healthcare standards, falling ill abroad without the right medical insurance policy can leave employees vulnerable and employers exposed to potentially significant costs and liabilities.
The price of treatment varies considerably between countries and repatriation or medical evacuation can quickly add up to many thousands of pounds.
Whether you choose travel or international medical insurance will depend upon where your employees are going, the length of their assignment, how frequently they travel and whether their family will be accompanying them.
