Medicare International offering health insurance with 'passive war cover'

Posted on Mar 11, 2010 by Sergio Ulloa ()  | Tags: Medicare International, Passive War Cover

London-based international medical insurer Medicare International has now added 'passive war cover' as an option on its health polices to provide coverage for contractors and workers in war torn nations. Medicare has recognized there is a growing number of people working in and around zones of conflict in the world and has tried to cater to contractors and NGO staff by offering passive war cover options on top of their regular benefits for both individual and group international health insurance policies. Senior Executive Director of Medicare International, David Pryor, said "In an age where localised conflicts seem to be ever present, whether in the form of a full scale encounter such as that in Afghanistan or on a more localised basis in other world hotspots, the reconstruction and rebuilding of economies is of vital importance. As a contractor or voluntary worker attached to an NGO, preparing yourself for the reality of entering such areas is a must, as the type of medical care which will be needed is quite different from standard healthcare practice. For those companies involved in reconstruction and aid, attracting the necessary highly-skilled specialists can be helped if they know they can at least have full medical cover." While most insurance policies have a complete war exclusion, Medicare International's policies with passive war cover come with the full range of benefit options such as medical and evacuation, as well as rehabilitation coverage of up to £100,000 (US$149,330) which would go towards reconstructive plastic surgery and prosthetics. The plans with passive war cover also provide cover in the event of a terrorist attack. Medicare International also generally offers premium discounts on groups of 3 or more lives insured.
