Anticipating challenges before they become emergencies is what Niofar is there for. We advise companies and their employees where the difficulties may lie - for example a gap in coverage for international insurance, requiring local payments for care - and offer unique solutions to provide alternatives.
Health Insurance Challenges
Pharmacies, clinics, laboratories and other health care providers do not recognise most international insurance, and do not have the administrative capacity to seek reimbursement abroad. They almost all require payment in advance in local currency, in full, and then provide you with the necessary documentation to allow you to seek your reimbursements on your own, post-care. This is signifiacant, because you will then need to make sure you keep enough local cash on-hand at any moment in case you need to seek healthcare locally.
Niofar offers local health insurance in-country for your employees, to overcome the coverage gaps with some international insurance. - so you don't have to pay out of pocket.
