The Benefits Alliance Group is proud to announce that Aetna International has been selected as its newest Preferred Partner with the goal of providing member firms access to their wide-ranging medical and health solutions. As a result of the partnership, plan sponsors working with a Benefits Alliance member firm or broker will have access to more products and options for their globally mobile employees, including:

  • A worldwide medical network and wide range of healthcare solutions that will enable better control of healthcare costs and meet regulatory requirements globally.
  • Virtual healthcare support through Aetna International’s vHealth, which gives members 24-hour access to primary care doctors for both telephone and video consultations, allowing them to access the care they need as it is needed.
  • Ongoing access to Aetna’s International Member Service Centres, which are accessible 24 hours a day, 365 days a year in over 240 languages.

“As the world continues to open up and international travel resumes, we remain committed to providing our member firms with the tools, solutions and products that will meet and exceed the expectations of plan sponsors and their employees,” said Mike Macoun, President of The Benefits Alliance Group. “Aetna International has a reputation as an industry leader and we are excited to be working together to provide our members and their clients with compliant and comprehensive health and well-being packages for international employees.”

In addition to the wider range of benefits that will now be available through Aetna International, Aetna’s direct settlement arrangements with over 165,000 healthcare providers outside the United States also means members will not have to worry about paying large bills upfront.

“The Benefits Alliance Group is a leading network of benefits advisors, with a unique and in-depth knowledge of the healthcare cover that organizations need today,” said Jason McCormick, Senior Director, Aetna International Canada. “We are extremely pleased to announce this partnership, which will give more brokers and plan sponsors access to personalised, convenient and affordable health and well-being services for their members.”
