Allianz Worldwide Care Launches International Health Insurance Plans for Individuals in China

  • Plans tailored for expats and local nationals

DUBLIN--()--Allianz Worldwide Care has announced the launch of international healthcare plans for individuals and their families living in China, developed in partnership with sister company, Allianz China General Insurance Company. The healthcare plans, which have been designed specifically for expatriates and local nationals, will initially be available for those living in Shanghai, China’s largest population centre. The creation of the healthcare plans for individuals was a natural evolution for the two Allianz companies, following the successful launch of a range of corporate healthcare plans and the establishment of a dedicated health insurance support centre in the Pudong District of Shanghai in 2012.

“What is equally compelling for clients is that these healthcare plans offer generous levels of cover for pre-existing and newly diagnosed chronic conditions as well as oncology treatment.”

Expatriates and local nationals based in Shanghai have a choice of three Core Plans, covering a wide range of in-patient and day-care treatments, along with other benefits such as medical evacuation, diagnostic tests and oncology treatment. The Core Plan can be supplemented by optional plans offering cover for out-patient, maternity, and health and wellbeing treatment. There are also two optional dental plans providing cover for general dental treatment, dental surgery, and orthodontics.

Michael Li, CEO of Allianz China General Insurance Company said, “Our local knowledge and contacts together with Allianz Worldwide Care’s global healthcare expertise have enabled us to provide an outstanding solution to individuals looking for international health insurance. The importance of private health insurance and access to private local and international medical facilities is widely recognised, particularly given China’s overcrowded public hospital system.”

Claude Daboul, Director of Sales, Marketing and Operations at Allianz Worldwide Care added, “Shanghai has a population of approximately 24 million and market insights indicated a growing demand for cover which gives individuals and their families access to private and international medical facilities. Our new healthcare plans, developed in partnership with Allianz China General Insurance Company, provide this. They offer direct settlement for in-patient, out-patient and dental treatment throughout China, and access to Allianz Worldwide Care’s extensive medical network outside of China. The modular design of these plans also means that clients can select the type and level of healthcare cover that’s absolutely right for them.

Daboul continued, “What is equally compelling for clients is that these healthcare plans offer generous levels of cover for pre-existing and newly diagnosed chronic conditions as well as oncology treatment.”
