Premier Assurance Group launches international healthcare plans

According to PA Group, these plans will provide Jamaicans with “Worldwide protection that gives peace of mind”.

The new Financial Services Commission approved products, which have been customized for the Caribbean marketplace, is backed by PA Group’s decade rich health and wealth accumulation solutions and will provide healthcare coverage for inpatient and outpatient services locally and internationally.

Plans will be distributed exclusively by the Maritime General Insurance Brokers, MGI (Insurance Brokers) Limited and other approved brokers in Jamaica.

According to Charles Jorge, President of PA Group, the expansion in the Caribbean is a timely and well-needed move.

“Certainly these plans have been customized to suit the Caribbean realities and fill the gaps in critical areas such as having all the important benefits in a single package without having to purchase additional riders”, he said.

“What we have therefore created is a comprehensive policy which provides inpatient and outpatient coverage for things such as major surgeries, cancer treatment, HIV/AIDS, mental health treatment, dialysis, house calls by physicians, emergency ground and air ambulance, emergency medical evacuation, home health care services, acupuncture and homeopathic treatment and so much more” added Mr. Jorge.

Boasting an array of benefits, which include access to the most prestigious network of providers internationally; CaribCare is a plan designed to meet each insured’s basic needs while protecting against unexpected medical costs including hospitalization, urgent care, and emergency medical services; oncology and dialysis coverage; as well as maternity and complications of pregnancy.

Meanwhile, CaribCare Plus is designed to offer a more comprehensive protection package with additional outpatient benefit options such as physician visits, prescription medication, rehabilitation, and diagnostic testing.
