WellAway Announces Approval Of Its Health Plans For US-Bound Expatriates As Compliant Under The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare)

WellAway Announces Approval Of Its Health Plans For US-Bound Expatriates As Compliant Under The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare)

WellAway, Ltd. has announced today that it has received accreditation from the United States government to distribute its expat plans as compliant under the requirements of Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). WellAway Limited is the only provider of international expat products to enjoy this approval.

By purchasing one of WellAway’s ACA-Compliant policies, Foreign individuals and employer groups will not be subject to the penalties or taxes that apply to any person admitted to the United States for a period of more than eleven months. Starting in 2015, employers may face further taxation or penalties if they do not offer ACA-compliant insurance coverage to their expat employees in the United States. WellAway has further emphasized its advocacy for expatriates coming to the USA by offering a variety of support tools and resources that help foreign nationals navigate the US healthcare system and Obamacare.

These include assigning personal ConciergeCare Counselors to help each member understand how their benefits work in the USA. ConciergeCare services assist members in finding the best-rated in-network providers, making appointments, dealing with medical bills and understanding any cost-shares. Member services are available 24/7 in the member’s native language. The company is also providing a variety of digital guides that will inform members of the differences between healthcare in the USA and in their country of origin.

“We are very excited to receive this approval and comply with the new USA requirements for insurance. This allows our members to keep a product that is international and specifically designed to the needs of expats, while meeting the new guidelines and not paying unnecessary taxes and penalties. It has taken a lot of work and effort for WellAway and its underwriters to design these products and really understand the USA mandates,” stated Griselle Chernys, spokesperson for the company.

”We are happy to offer these products to any foreign nationals entering the United States and our brokers and distributors have welcomed meeting the demands of their clients. Until now, there were no ACA-compliant options available to expats and brokers have often found themselves unable to meet a growing demand. Our product is different because it encompasses a very complete service to the expat via our unique program design.” added Chernys.

Individuals or families interested in a WellAway Limited Obamacare compliant plan, may visit WellAway at www.wellaway.com to see all plan options available. Plans are also available via our international insurance brokers in different countries around the world. Interested parties are encouraged to seek a referral to one of our brokers by contacting our sales representatives at the numbers listed on our website.
