If you’re a business that offers relocation opportunities, either to existing employees or to those looking to join your company, then whatever industry you’re in it’s likely to be a competitive one.
Competitive not only from business, revenue, and profitability standpoint but from a people perspective too.
Companies looking to attract the best talent from around the world are constantly looking to improve their employment and benefits packages, and one of the best ways to do this is by offering private health and medical insurance to your employees.
If you’re a business with an existing or growing overseas workforce, investing in group health cover for these individuals can be a cost-effective means of improving your attractiveness as an employer.
While there is a cost-benefit to your business of taking out private health and medical cover on a group basis, rather than for each individual at a time, the main reasons for taking this path are all about the people who will benefit.
Let’s think about relocating overseas.
International relocation is an incredibly exciting opportunity that many global citizens will grab with both hands.
At the same time, there are several considerations individuals must make prior to moving, and there will also be a lot of questions they want to ask, particularly if they’re relocating with their family.
One of the biggest questions is likely to be around how the healthcare system works in your location. By offering private health cover to your employees, you’re immediately addressing this, putting potential applicants’ mind at rest, and making your business stand out and be more competitive in the jobs market.
In addition to the factors already described, there are many additional benefits of taking out group health and medical cover for your employees.
By ensuring your relocating employees are covered, you save them the time and effort of learning how the healthcare system works in your location, as well as needing to take out their own international health insurance. Depending on where your employees are relocating from, you may find they have differing levels of experience and knowledge of different healthcare systems. Relocating from a country with universal, free public healthcare to one mainly reliant on the private sector, for example, can be a culture shock.
Your employees will subsequently be able to access the healthcare they need quicker, minimising the time they are ill and may need to spend off work, while there will be no stress and worry about how they’re going to meet their medical costs.
Now Health International provides a range of private health and medical insurance options, allowing you the flexibility to choose the level of group cover you wish to provide to your relocating team members.
Choose from basic options that will cover your employees for urgent and emergency medical care, or for any day-patient and in-patient treatment they require while working for you in their new location.
We can also provide group packages that will cover your employees’ costs for any out-patient, dental, and medical care they require.

“I am so grateful to the Now Health Team for everything they did for me and my family. My rare condition was completely unexpected and it was distressing to discover this while I was pregnant. However from the initial diagnosis all the way through to my kidney transplant, the team were nothing but supportive and ensured I could access the best care when I needed it most. Having the reassurance that my mother’s transplant donor costs would be covered was also a real relief. Thank you Now Health!”
