Brisbane, 15 June 2021

Allianz Partners, part of the global Allianz Group, has updated its offering to overseas workers and under its newly re-branded international health brand, Allianz Care. From 6 July 2021, the new options introduce a flexible excess and improved pricing for couples and families.

Allianz Care’s updated pricing for Overseas Visitor Health Cover (OVHC) gives working visa members the option to apply a $0 or $500 excess to their cover – giving them the option to reduce their premium. The pricing of Allianz Care Australia’s OVHC for working couples and families has also been reduced.

Miranda Fennell, Acting Chief Executive Officer at Allianz Partners Australia, said the new excess and improved pricing will benefit those workers already in Australia and those looking to return when the borders open. We want to make it as easy as possible for these members to access treatment services for their mental, physical and medical wellbeing, helping them stay safe, happy and healthy while in Australia.”

“Allianz Care has responded to partner and customer feedback to improve the competitiveness of our product. The changes mean we can continue to offer a great service, while providing overseas workers with flexible pricing, backed by our strong network of medical and allied health professionals. We’re helping our members navigate the Australian health system to get help when and where they need it – particularly in these uncertain times,” Ms Fennell said.

Existing services are still available such as Doctors on Demand – a 24/7 Australian telehealth service providing online doctor’s appointments, medical certificates and prescriptions. (Excluding Budget Working cover and Budget Visitors cover).

Allianz Care Australia is one of Australia’s most experienced providers of health cover and support for overseas students, visitors and workers in Australia. Formerly Allianz Global Assistance, the new Allianz Care brand will continue to assist almost 250,000 international visitors, workers and student members during and after the pandemic.
