An Employee who agrees to a foreign work assignment will often be enrolled in a long-term “individual” expat plan. If a multinational company has 5 or more employees working and living abroad, a “group” plan may fit your needs.
Remember … the domestic employer health insurance policy does not provide comprehensive medical benefits outside their home country.
For example; An employee takes a couple monthly prescriptions and likes to take advantage of yearly preventive screenings and exams, also need physical therapy on a sore shoulder or knee. These services would not be provided with the U.S. employer health plan. Another example is; the employee is very active and enjoys recreational sports and outdoor activities and wants to be able to see a doctor and have it paid for, if they happen to twist their knee hiking, have a minor biking accident or any other non emergency event. Also not provided with the employer plan.
