Bellwood Prestbury in partnership with APRIL international has launched an international medical plan designed for the international contractor sector.
Whether onshore or offshore, the International Contractors Health Plan offers a range of tailored medical insurance solutions for people working in the Oil & Gas, Energy, Telecommunications, Technology and associated sectors.
Belllwood Prestbury said such employees are "often faced with a combination of high premiums and insufficient cover when trying to arrange cover."
The plan has been designed for the self-employed and small groups of employees.
Offering a choice of three levels of cover available for periods of 3, 6, 9 or 12 months, every policy includes as standard 24/7 Emergency Medical Evacuation (CEGA Assistance), 24/7 Crisis Management Assistance (Red24) and Global Blood Transfusion support (Blood Care Foundation).
Andrew Apps, head of global healthcare at Bellwood Prestbury International said: "By bringing together a choice of comprehensive cover benefits and affordable premiums, this unique programme recognises the demands and requirements of the global contractor by packaging each element under a single proposition."
"The International Contractors Plan is ideal for anyone looking for either short or long-term cover, and has the advantage of providing cover between assignments, so removing the need to reapply for cover and facing potential underwriting issues every time a new job comes along".
