AXA has launched a new international healthcare proposition for firms with employees based in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Available from 1 January 2019 for both multinational companies with employees on assignment in the region and locally-based businesses, this new compliant proposition meets the Saudi Arabian Monetary Authority (SAMA) and Council of Cooperative Health Insurance (CCHI) regulations.
AXA’s Prestige and Prestige Plus plans have been carefully designed to meet local needs and be consistent with AXA’s other global healthcare offerings in the region, namely in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Combining AXA Cooperative Insurance Company’s strong presence in the region and AXA – Global Healthcare’s international health insurance capabilities, the plan protects international assignees wherever they are in the world, under one globally recognised and trusted brand.
When seeking local medical treatment, the proposition allows members to use hospital networks and cashless facilities within the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and is complemented by AXA’s full global medical network, which gives access to medical treatment when outside the region. Benefits of the plan, which can be customised depending on the size of the scheme, include comprehensive cancer benefits and cover for kidney dialysis as well as mandatory cover for life threatening congenital conditions, pre-existing conditions and new-born cover for up to 30 days.
