2014/4 - The complementary health insurance UN - PREMIUM version

GPAFI now offers a PREMIUM version of the complementary health insurance UN.

PREMIUM integrates assistance services during a stay abroad in addition to the existing coverage of medical expenses. Besides new medical, travel and security assistance, PREMIUM offers a significant advantage for GPAFI members who are covered by the UN medical insurance (UNSMIS) that no other assistance company is able to offer.

If an outpatient treatment or a hospitalization is required, UNIQA Assistance guarantees payment, 24/7 all around the world, and covers 100% of the medical costs directly with the healthcare provider or the hospital facility.

So the insured don't need to pay himself the medical costs nor to submit the bill afterwards to his basic insurance and to his complementary insurance. UNIQA Assistance handles everything, unlike other assistance providers who only make advance for medical costs, limited and refundable, and who don't transmit bills to insurances.
