Raffles Health Insurance Pte Ltd (RHI); a wholly-owned subsidiary of Raffles Medical Group, has launched two new international health insurance plans targeting next generation expatriates and international businesses in the Asia Pacific region, in conjunction with international health insurer Bupa.
The plans, insured by Raffles Health Insurance and administered by Bupa, are called RHI-Bupa Company Health Select Asia Pacific and RHI-Bupa Company Health Choice International. The Company Health Select Asia Pacific plan is designed for businesses that operate in the Asia Pacific region, whose employees do not need worldwide cover, while the Health Choice International plan covers members in three different countries.
Members on the Company Health Select Asia Pacific plan are covered for treatment in more than 40 countries in the Asia Pacific region, with the exception of Hong Kong; while the Company Health Choice International plan covers members in three countries, for which Singapore has to be their residency country with members choosing two additional locations of choice (excluding the USA).
These new tailored plans provide an affordable and flexible option of healthcare for a next generation of expatriates and the businesses employing them. Rather than offering worldwide cover, the plans are tailored to the specific locations to provide the individual with the right treatment, at the right time and in the right place.
Danny Yap, Principal Officer and General Manager of RHI, said, “We are delighted to see our relationship with Bupa continue to grow. These new products broaden our offerings and further position RHI as one of Singapore’s leading healthcare insurance specialists.”
Wayne Close, Managing Director at Bupa International said, “We are very happy to be working with Raffles Health Insurance. The launch of these products further demonstrates Bupa and RHI’s commitment to providing access to high quality healthcare in the region and to the international businesses operating from Singapore.”
He added “With international businesses increasingly moving their Asia regional headquarters to Singapore, we expect the number of next generation expatriates in Singapore to continue to grow. These two new plans have been developed in response to the needs of these businesses and expatriates.”
Both plans include comprehensive in-patient cover and assistance cover, including emergency evacuation and repatriation. Members can also increase the cover to include an additional out-patient module or extend it to their families. In addition, RHI and Bupa have a dedicated 24-hour multi-lingual team to provide medical assistance.
Bupa offers quality individual and group medical cover to people who are in their home country or living and working abroad. Under this relationship, RHI will directly insure the plans while Bupa is the administrator. The plans are available at RHI through brokers, agents and financial advisers.
