MetLife And Healthscope Make It Easier For Expatriates To Access Quality Healthcare In Australia

Stocks in this article: MET

MetLife, a leading provider of global employee benefit solutions, announced today a new agreement with Healthscope, a leading integrated healthcare company with hospitals, medical centers and pathology clinics throughout all of Australia’s states and territories. Multinational corporations with expatriate employees in Australia can now access high-quality healthcare at more than 100 locations across the continent.

The agreement offers MetLife’s expatriate benefits customers direct settlement of their covered healthcare expenses through Healthscope’s comprehensive portfolio of healthcare facilities. Healthscope operates more than 4,500 inpatient beds in 44 hospitals and 60 medical centers that serve more than 2.5 million patients annually.

“As multinationals grow globally, so will their workforce. This new agreement with Healthscope will help meet the need for expatriate benefits for this expanding global workforce,” said David Nagengast, assistant vice president, Expatriate Benefits, Global Employee Benefits at MetLife. “Our top priority is to offer MetLife’s expatriate customers access to quality healthcare in their country of assignment. Not only does this agreement accomplish this, it also may reduce our customers’ out-of-pocket expense when obtaining care in Australia.”

Mark Briscoe, general manager of Corporate Services, Healthscope said, “This new agreement gives MetLife customers access to Healthscope’s quality healthcare services Australia-wide. We see this partnership as a good fit with Healthscope’s leading position in Australian healthcare and MetLife’s leadership position in the global employee benefits space.”

“Through our rigorous selection process, we have now identified high-quality healthcare providers for our customers in more than 160 countries around the world. The expansion of MetLife’s expatriate platform in Australia adds to our seamless overseas care for our members and accelerates our momentum in the expatriate business segment,” Nagengast added.

MetLife has been a provider of expatriate programs for more than 35 years, offering products such as medical, dental, life, accidental death and dismemberment, disability, vision, prescription drug, international employee assistance, as well as short-term travel solutions through the International Business Travel Medical (IBTM) plan. Expatriate Benefits products are underwritten by Delaware American Life Insurance Company (DelAmLife), a subsidiary of MetLife, Inc., and are not available in all states in the U.S.
