“Insights from our research inform us that when it comes to global health plans, customers are really looking for simplicity and flexibility, said Moses Dodo, General Manager for Bupa Global Latin America. “These products are tiered, offering different levels of coverage and price so that it’s easy to choose the option that meets the unique needs of individuals and families.
The new IPMI products were carefully developed based on findings from an extensive global study, involving more than 3,000 individuals of different nationalities and backgrounds around the world. They are packaged to offer benefits that promote consumers’ all-round health and will include the following coverage:
- In-hospital and out-patient care
- Health checks – focused on preventative as much as curative care
- Mental and holistic therapies – caring for mind and body
- Evacuation – if emergency treatment isn’t available locally, transportation for the member and one other person to where treatment or care is available
- Treatment for cancer and other serious illnesses, for as long as needed, while insured
- Hereditary, congenital and chronic conditions
- Transplants and rehabilitation
"Colombia marks the tenth country launch of these co-branded health plans and we’re delighted that customers in the region can now reap the benefits”, said Maureen Sullivan, Chief Strategy and Innovation Officer of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association (BCBSA). “Our vision is to provide customers with well-designed products and services that meet their unique demands for stability and security as global citizens.”
