Offering unique global health benefits to teachers and their families at International Schools.
Hollard and Cigna share a common desire: the perfection of a comprehensive healthcare solution for the international assignees, regional expatriates and local management of multinational corporations operating across Africa. Having operated separately within the African health insurance market for a number of years, each identified the other as the ideal partner for a venture that would transform the way Pan-African multinationals think about health care.
Privately owned and truly independent, the Hollard Insurance Group is renowned for service across the African continent. Through the provision of an extensive range of insurance services fitted to local consumer requirements, the group has succeeded in forming deep and long-term relationships with both corporate and individual customers.
As a leading global health service company, Hollard and Cigna are committed to helping expatriate teachers overcome these challenges so they can achieve and maintain their best health –wherever they work or travel.
Operating in Africa for over 60 years, Hollard and Cigna provide access to quality health care in all 54 countries in the continent. We offer local, regional and global networks of health care professionals and facilities.
We enable access to quality healthcare in Africa
Your staff are your most important assets, and when they are ill or injured, they deserve the best possible healthcare, regardless of the state of medical infrastructure in the country in which they find themselves. That is why we harness our extensive African provider network to optimize their access to local and international care. Our proprietary technology solutions help improve the speed and quality of healthcare delivery and our passionate support teams are committed to getting your staff back on track, healthier and even more productive than before.
We know Africa
Our deep-rooted understanding of each African country’s healthcare environment, combined with a strong “on-the-ground” presence developed over 60 years of operating on the continent, give us profound insights into what makes for a successful African health insurance plan. We also proudly maintain full compliance with
local regulations in each country in which we operate, ensuring that your health insurance plan contributes to the development of local economies and communities and sparing you the legal complications associated with non-compliance.
We make it easy for you
No matter how highly you value your employees’ wellbeing, daunting administrative requirements can make implementing a high-quality health insurance plan seem impossible. Our seamless onboarding process, easy to understand documentation and dedicated client management teams change all that. But we go one step
further and make it easy for your employees too. Through quick and simple resolution of claims, access to a 24/7 call centre and an industry-leading set of digital tools to deal with any queries, we ensure they’re always 100% behind your choice of health insurer.
We satisfy your unique health insurance needs
Whether you’re operating in one African country or many, and whether you’re looking to cover key local staff or expatriates or both, Hollard Cigna Health offers you a combination of health insurance plans that provides you with optimised coverage for your budget. From plans that provide expatriates with cover wherever they are in the world, to plans combining local and best-in-Africa cover, our premium product suite covers all eventualities when it comes to addressing your particular health insurance requirements. But no matter what combination you choose, you’ll always get access to the most experienced and committed health insurance professionals in Africa.
We partner with you for the long term
The only thing worse than having to change healthcare insurance providers every year, is putting up with unpredictable and unexpected annual premium increases. By combining world-class clinical management with best-of-breed cost management practices, we eliminate unnecessary cost escalation in order to keep your plan viable. We’re able to do this thanks to our extensive global cost database, substantial supplier negotiating power and industry-leading fraud management practices, all informed by our unique insights into African healthcare. Because we know the real benefits of health insurance come with time.
The Association of International Schools in Africa is dedicated to serving its members throughout Africa during this challenging time. Please let us know if you require additional or specific information, resources and or support, and we will endeavour to assist you as soon as possible.
