William Russell launches global health insurance for expats

International expatriate insurance specialist William Russell has launched an international health insurance service for corporates.

Global Health Bespoke is designed for companies with more than 50 expatriate employees and offers client cover that is not normally included in standard health plans such as optical cover and full cover for the routine maintenance of chronic conditions such as diabetes. The plan also offers a simplified application process for IFAs with cover for pre-existing medical conditions with no waiting periods on the service.

William Russell sales director James Cooper says: “Larger employers often have very specific international health insurance requirements and we recognise that their IFAs need the flexibility to advise on bespoke solutions. Our new global health bespoke service allows IFAs to design a client’s plan to fit the company’s exact requirements selecting from a wide range of healthcare benefits, geographical limits and currencies.”
