Foreign Voluntary Workers Compensation Repatriation Travel Assistance

Get coverage that follows your employees traveling overseas.

International Insurance for Employee Injuries, Illnesses & Accidents

The most important asset of any company is its employees. The risk of injury to your employees is much higher when they travel outside their home country. In addition to the typical medical and lost wages coverage common to domestic Workers’ Compensation coverage, your employees who travel overseas also need coverage for medical treatment and transportation home, or to medical facilities overseas that provide the quality medical care expected by Americans.

While domestic Workers’ Compensation policies provide temporary coverage for short overseas trips, this coverage will not provide adequate protection, and can increase the cost of your domestic Workers’ Compensation insurance program.
