Working in partnership with Aetna International, Swiss Life Global Employee Benefits Solutions is helping to make the global workforce healthier, happier and more productive. Thanks to a new health insurance product named "Swiss Life International Medical Plan", businesses can better support their expatriate employees’ health and help them live with confidence, no matter where they are based. With more product choice than ever before, businesses across the EU, EEA and Switzerland have the opportunity to strengthen their health offering and retain their most valued talent.

International Medical Plan – personal, convenient and affordable healthcare

Swiss Life firmly believes that healthcare should be accessible and affordable, wherever you are in the world. To give more people better access to healthcare, Swiss Life is offering a new tailored health insurance product designed to meet the diverse needs of employees based across the globe.

The comprehensive international medical product includes care and treatment for inpatient, outpatient, optical and dental needs. With three plans to choose from, businesses can select the level of cover that best meets their reward strategy and budget. This tailored structure means Swiss Life can support more businesses – large and small – with the health insurance they need to build long-lasting trust with their employees.


Employees also benefit from lower out-of-pocket expenses, enabling them to concentrate on enjoying the rewards the opportunity to work away from home bring. They can access a wide range of treatments and wellbeing services, giving them the peace of mind they need to thrive as expatriate employees.

More than health insurance

A key benefit of the new International Medical Plan is the support and accessibility it offers to employees who want to take control of their health. As well as providing cover for primary care, it also provides referrals to secondary care, travel and security help, healthy living advice, an employee assistance program, centralisation of health records and financial management. Delivered at a local level through Aetna International’s widespread global medical network, the plan ensures expatriate employees can get the right medical support for themselves and their families, whenever they need it.

Accessible online or through an integrated mobile app, the International Medical Plan also makes it easy for individuals to keep services and support within reach at all times, helping them take control of their health.

Time pressures and inaccessibility are common barriers to people seeking medical advice, and the plan breaks these obstacles down with easy-to-use online tools.

Enhancing employee benefits with transparency and simplicity

At Swiss Life, we know that employee benefits must be easy to manage to deliver the most value to businesses. By offering a range of medical needs from one provider, the International Medical Plan offers better cost containment and transparency. Each business has a single point of contact, who works closely with them to tailor the product to their requirements and monitor its performance.

For assurance, Swiss Life has worked in partnership with Aetna International to ensure the product benefits from its extensive underwriting and claims management expertise, as well as a global medical network for claims handling. Combining Aetna International’s medical underwriting capabilities and broad network with Swiss Life’s financial security, we can give businesses and their employees the assurance of a comprehensive and resilient plan.

Strengthening employee benefits with choice

At Swiss Life, we believe freedom of choice is one of the most important aspects of self-determination. It enables individuals to make decisions based on their own needs and goals. By adding the International Medical Plan to our offering, we hope to make employee benefits even more tailored and valued to businesses and employees across the world.
