WHY BUY AN INTERNATIONAL GROUP BENEFIT PROGRAM?

Whether you are a US based organization with employees overseas, or a non-US organization employing expatriates, third country nationals or key local nationals, a dependable and cost effective international group benefit program is a necessity.  Outside the United States, American employees find their traditional group benefit programs to be non-responsive, in benefits and in service, to the unique situations facing them as they seek healthcare abroad.  Third country nationals and key local nationals find that their home country social medical systems rarely extend beyond the country’s borders, and the availability of medical facilities within those borders may be extremely limited.  As international employers seek to compete in global markets, the challenge of attracting and retaining qualified international employees can only be met with a comprehensive international group benefit program. 

IS MY ORGANIZATION ELIGIBLE FOR THE A+MULTINATIONAL SERIES?

If you are a US based organization with a subsidiary or division operating outside the US, with 3 or more international employees, your organization is eligible.  If your organization is based outside the US, and you have 3 or more employees, your organization is eligible.  

WHAT ARE THE UNDERWRITING REQUIREMENTS FOR THE A+MULTINATIONAL SERIES?

If you have 10 or less international employees, a completed medical questionnaire must be submitted and approved for each employee and dependent to be covered.  If you have 11 or more international employees, a completed simplified medical questionnaire must be submitted and approved for each employee and dependent to be covered.  This requirement may be waived if you provide at least 3 years of claims history on your international group, from your present or prior insurer.  At least 80% of your international employees must participate in the insurance.  

ARE ALL INTERNATIONAL EMPLOYEES AND THEIR DEPENDENTS ELIGIBLE FOR INSURANCE UNDER THE A+MULTINATIONAL SERIES?

All active, full-time (30 hours per week or more) employees are eligible, provided they reside and work outside the US.  All Spouses and Dependent children under the age of 19 (23 if full-time student) are eligible, regardless of where they reside.  

WHEN DOES COVERAGE BECOME EFFECTIVE FOR MY INTERNATIONAL EMPLOYEES AND THEIR DEPENDENTS?

For Employees and Dependents who were covered on the day immediately preceding the Effective Date of the A+MultiNational plan, coverage becomes effective immediately, provided they have satisfied the Waiting Period selected by the employer.  For new Employees and Dependents added throughout the year, coverage becomes effective on the first day of the month following the Waiting Period selected by the employer, provided the appropriate medical questionnaire has been submitted and approved within the first 30 days of employment.  

WHEN DOES COVERAGE END?

Coverage ends on the date employment terminates, the date of the employee’s retirement, the date the employee becomes eligible for a US group benefit plan, or twelve months following the employee’s return to the US – whichever first occurs.  Some groups are required to extend COBRA benefits to terminating employees.  In these circumstances, the A+MultiNational Series provides for such extension.

 WHAT ARE THE PLAN FEATURES?

Pre-existing Conditions:

Pre-existing conditions are covered after 12 months of continuous coverage under the A+MultiNational Series.  If the A+MultiNational Series is replacing another group insurance plan, time insured under the prior plan will reduce the 12 month wait for coverage of Pre-existing Conditions. 

Outpatient Prescription Drug Card Option:

If you select this Option, each employee will receive a Prescription Drug Card recognized by 98% of the pharmacy outlets in the US. There is a co-pay of $7 per prescription for Generic drugs, and $15 per prescription for Brand drugs, charged when the medication is acquired.  

Wellness:

For employees age 35 and older, the A+MultiNational Series provides up to $150 for an annual routine physical exam, after 24 months of continuous coverage.  If the A+MultiNational Series is replacing another group insurance plan that also featured a Wellness benefit, time insured under the prior plan will reduce the 24 month wait for the Wellness Benefit. 

Maternity and Newborn Care:

Maternity expenses, including pre-natal care, delivery and post-natal care, are covered on the same basis as any other Illness, after 10 months of continuous coverage.  Newborns are covered from the moment of birth, provided the delivery is covered, and provided the Newborn is properly enrolled within the first 31 days of life.  If the A+MultiNational Series is replacing another group insurance plan, time insured under the prior plan will reduce the 10 month wait for Maternity and Newborn Care benefits. 

Emergency Medical Evacuation:

Emergency Medical Evacuation to the nearest medical facility qualified to treat the life threatening condition is covered.  All Emergency Medical Evacuations must be approved in advance by MultiNational Underwriters, Inc.  MultiNational Underwriters, Inc. is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to approve and coordinate Emergency Medical Evacuations. 

Pre-Certification:

All Hospitalizations, certain Outpatient procedures, Maternity,  and Transplants must be Pre-certified.   Pre-certification is easy.   The patient or the Physician simply calls MultiNational Underwriters, Inc. with all information about the medical condition.  For Maternity, Pre-certification must be done within the first 90 days of Pregnancy.  All other Pre-certifications must be done as soon as possible before the expense is incurred, or within 48 hours in the event of an emergency.   If you do not Pre-certify, benefits will be significantly reduced, and in the case of Transplants, benefits will be forfeited.  

Preferred Provider Organization:

You may choose any Physician or any Hospital.  If you are seeking treatment in the US, your co-insurance will be waived with respect to charges incurred in the MultiNational PPO Network.  Upon request, MultiNational will provide you with a Provider Directory for the area where you will be receiving treatment.  You can also access the Provider Directory via the Internet at www.multiplan.com
