Maritime Health Insurance Options

CCW Global is able to provide comprehensive health insurance options for companies and workers in the international maritime industry.

Maritime health insurance plans from CCW are able to protect sailors and crew both on and off-shore, as well as land based offices (shipping agents, for example) under a single flexible policy. With worldwide protection, a range of flexible policy benefits including Emergency Evacuation and Outpatient coverage, maritime health insurance plans gives companies in the international marine industry the assurance they need that all employees will have access to the highest quality healthcare available, no matter where they may be in the world.

Marine Crew Health Insurance Coverage

With the nature of their job, active crewmembers of vessels require flexible health insurance protection. This is due to the fact that these workers are often on the ocean for months at a time, sailing from country to country on board their ship.

Without a permanent residential address in a fixed location, and with the ever present risks these individuals encounter on the high seas, it has been a challenge for sailors and crewmen to obtain the comprehensive medical protection they need.

CCW global can provide extensive health insurance options to active sailors which allow for Global Coverage including a sailor’s home country. These plans also do not require a fixed residential address, meaning that they are perfect for sailors who will spend the majority of a year on board a vessel sailing from place to place.  In fact, one of the only requirements for Marine Health Insurance coverage is that the individual purchasing the protection is employed on an ocean going ship.

Outside of the fact that marine health insurance coverage can protect sailors around the world, these policies also offer specific coverage benefits designed to ensure that healthcare is available to crew members, even in distant and remote locations – with Emergency Evacuation and Repatriation protection, sailors no longer have to worry about suffering from a medical emergency on the open ocean knowing that they will receive medical assistance anywhere on earth.

Marine Company Health Insurance

Similar to the Marine Crew health coverage, CCW Global can also provide health insurance policies which cover the entirety of a company operating in the international maritime industry.

Plans can be structured to provide different levels of coverage for different classes of employees. For example, active crew members could receive in-patient, out-patient, and emergency evacuation coverage under the policy while back office staff and senior executives could be offered maternity, dental, and alternative therapy protection.

Additionally, CCW Global can offer companies operating in the international marine and maritime industries with the option of obtaining Full Medical Underwriting (FMU) or Medical History Disregarded (MHD) coverage on the policy – giving the business extreme control on the specific of the policy.

Coverage benefits for Marine Company Health Insurance plans from CCW Global include options for:

Additionally, depending on the size of the group and the specific activities of the maritime company in question CCW Global may be able to explore additional protection for the group under the auspices of the marine health insurance policy. This may, for example, include the provision of Personal Accident coverage for a ship building company, or Critical Illness protection for a shipping agent.
