Questions and Answers from Visitors

  1. Joyce:

    Can you provide Health, Hospitalization and Travel insurance to residents on India and Indonesia employed by an International company?
    Thanks & regards,


    1. Jason:

      Hi Joyce,

      Yes we can provide solutions for your employees based in India and Indonesia. Considering that they are residents in their home country, we will need to focus on the insurers to specialise in this type of coverage. BUPA, Allianz and Interglobal are just a few of the internationally recognised companies able to offer varying levels of coverage ranging from basic hospital plans up to fully comprehensive policies covering all aspects of insurance. Outpatient treatment for specialists, dental and maternity are all core benefits of the plan that you will need to consider and are available as additional coverage.
      Traditionally travel insurance would not be needed for medical treatment outside of their home country as the international plans generally offer worldwide excluding USA coverage as standard, so they would be covered in either India, Indonesia or at your office in Hong Kong.
      Further to this your company can also look at establishing a group medical insurance plan allowing you to administer the policies through your company in Hong Kong. This provides a lot more flexibility on plan designs and ultimately makes the administration of adding or removing employees very simple throughout the year.
      One of our consultants will be in touch to speak with you directly to discuss your specific requirements and prepare a tailored quote accordingly.

      Thanks again for your question!
