Foreign Voluntary Workers Compensation Insurance

Are your employees traveling outside of the U.S. for business? Do you have employees on assignment outside of their home country, including international employees on assignment in the U.S.? If so, your company needs Foreign Voluntary Worker’s Compensation insurance to protect your employees. 

Foreign Voluntary Workers Compensation is insurance for bodily injury from accidents or diseases that occur while your employees are working outside of their home country, subject to the applicability of any state workers compensation statutory requirements.

Chubb’s Foreign Voluntary Workers Compensation insurance addresses a broad range of risks and is flexible enough to meet individual company needs with:

  • 24/7 protection for work-related injuries for U.S. employees during travel outside of the U.S.
  • Repatriation expenses to cover travel costs for emergency medical treatment when employees are sick or injured abroad.
  • Employers liability protection if employees outside the U.S. sue your company as a result of a work-related injury.

As part of Chubb’s Foreign Voluntary Workers Compensation insurance, we engage a leading global medical assistance provider to give your covered employees 24/7 access to medical assistance services around the world. These services include:

  • Medical monitoring to connect your employees with professional case managers to monitor care.
  • Emergency medical evacuations to the nearest treatment facility or your employee’s home country when medically necessary.

Chubb’s dedicated Multinational Claim Unit maintains constant communication with the global medical assistance provider to ensure seamless claim handling.
