It’s a global workplace now that Covid has freed many of us from the traditional commute. Fact is, you can work anywhere, so long as the Wifi is reliable and the data is secure. So Zurich Insurance Group (Zurich) is adding Ping An Health, a leading technology-driven health insurance company, to its global network of insurance providers for the employees of multinationals.
Zurich Global Employee Benefits Solutions provides risk management and financing solutions for the global employee benefit plans of multinationals. The solutions include the Group’s own offering and those of selected leading insurers in geographies and lines of business not covered by Zurich.
“Working with Ping An Health will expand our network in China and enable Zurich to provide customers with a broader choice for premier medical insurance coverage for their employees in this important market,” said Rob Brown, Head of Network Partner Management at Zurich Global Employee Benefits Solutions. “As a market leader in China, Ping An Health brings important product innovation and market know-how to our network and Zurich’s customers will benefit from its broad healthcare ecosystem.”
Customers will benefit from Ping An Health’s large range of services and products provided to Zurich Global Employee Benefits Solutions, including group accident, death due to disease, critical illness as well as local and high-end medical coverage and vitality wellness services. In addition, customers with captive solutions will be able to reinsure employee benefits for their China-based employees, allowing them to design and underwrite their plans more flexibly and to optimize their insurance cost structure.
Mr. Li Hao (李浩), General Manager at Ping An Health, said: “We are delighted to be part of the Zurich Global Employee Benefits Solutions network and to provide our best employee benefits and wellness solutions to our mutual customers in China.”
The Zurich Global Employee Benefits Solutions network includes over 100 insurance carriers with specialist capabilities in more than 130 markets. The network’s insurers currently cover more than one million employees of over 125 multinational customers.
