In cases of international assignments different combinations of countries occur where people live, work, temporarily stay within the framework of a holiday, home leave or business trip and where people have mandatory health care insurance in the framework of social security. For instance, an employee can have mandatory insurance in the Netherlands, while living in Belgium, working in Germany and staying in Brazil on a business trip. The same goes for their family members.
At the same time, at all these locations in the world, a situation might arise in which one is in need of a doctor and/or medication, where someone needs to be admitted to a hospital, transported by an ambulance, etc. At all times it should be clear whether there is coverage by health care insurance, to what extend expenses are insured, how expenses get reimbursed, etc..
Particularly in the case of health care insurance, you can not afford the assignee having doubts whether it is properly taken care of.
However, whether, where and how health care is administered and expenses are paid and whether, where and how these health care expenses are insured and will be reimbursed when dealing with international assignments, could transform into a labyrinth that may well lead to undesirable outcomes such as non-compliance fines, double insurance or even worse ... absence of insurance.
This Learning Event will show you how to find your way out of the maze in a structured manner.
