Companion Global Healthcare offers medical travel insurance


Companion Global Healthcare has selected Global Protective Solutions, administered by Custom Assurance Placements, and underwritten by underwriters at Lloyd’s of London, to provide affordable specialty travel insurance with defined benefits for medical travellers.

The policy also includes liability options for employers. Companion Global is the first deal for the new insurance range. Policies are only available via specific wholesale deals and are not sold direct to consumers from the insurance intermediary.

Companion Global offers healthcare choices to US patients only in a network of JCI-accredited international medical facilities.

”We selected GPS based on the company’s experience in handling international travel insurance and its reputation for service excellence,” says David Boucher of Companion Global Healthcare.

Tracy Simons of Custom Assurance adds: “These insurance plans address the unintended consequences of medical travel, with benefits that can be tailored to each individual or group-specific need. They include accidental death and dismemberment, medical expenses, disability, emergency evacuation, repatriation of mortal remains, additional travel expenses, meals and accommodations, family coordination, residence modification, loss of reproductive function, and more.”

Benefits tailored to each individual or group specific needs and can include the following options:

• Accidental death and dismemberment

• Medical expenses

• Disability

• Emergency evacuation

• Repatriation of mortal remains

• Additional medical or surgical treatment benefit

• Additional expenses for travel, meals and accommodations

• Family coordination

• Loss of reproductive function

Custom Assurance Placements is a wholesale broker that chooses specific agencies as partners and develop custom programmes needed for a selected risk or exposure group. Coverage can be on an individual trip basis or included in an employer group benefit for a nominal per member per month charge.
