Ron Buchan, Chief Executive of Allianz Worldwide Care said:
“The introduction of Allianz Corporate Assistance is a natural and straightforward step for us. We have many clients in industries such as mining, construction, oil and gas, who need to establish operations where those natural resources or opportunities are located. This can include some fairly inhospitable environments. Our clients want to ensure that there is adequate medical care and support for their teams”.
"We already have doctors based around the world and a 24/7 multilingual Helpline, so we are well placed to extend our support offering to help clients overcome some of the challenges that they may face and mitigate health risks. For example, in remote locations, if medical care is not readily available, we can establish static or mobile first aid stations, medical centres or clinics, with state of the art medical equipment and supplies”.
Allianz Corporate Assistance services include:
- Establishment and staffing of remote first aid stations or clinics
- General health and medical provider information
- Medical evacuation/repatriation and related services
- Case management of out-patient and in-patient treatment
- Shipment of prescribed drugs
- Medical second opinion
- Occupational health and wellness
- Health checks
These new services are available from 1st January 2015 and the company has designed the offering to be very modular, flexible and convenient for clients. There is a base package of standard medical assistance services which companies can then supplement from a list of additional services, selecting only those that are of interest to them. Services such as the establishment of remote clinics and tele-medicine facilities, which by their nature need to be tailored to each client, can be purchased on an individual basis, regardless of whether or not the client has selected the base package.
These new services can be purchased by any company, regardless of whether or not they currently have international health and life policies with Allianz Worldwide Care.
