SafetyWing and Andela: Global healthcare coverage

Andela and SafetyWing: Prepare for every eventuality

As a remote worker, unforeseen healthcare emergencies can leave you feeling powerless. Without adequate coverage for you and your dependents,  an unexpected health treatment or hospital trip could create financial difficulties and instability. For technologists in the remote workplace, the fast-paced tech industry demands hard work and dedication, so you owe it to yourself and your loved ones to take good care of your health.

Being in prime physical and mental health enables you to perform to the best of your abilities in the workplace to excel in your career. And knowing that your – and your family’s – health care is covered can offer you peace of mind. And that feeling is priceless.

At Andela, people are at the heart of everything we do. This ethos underpins our business practices, ensuring we offer guidance and support 24/7 to all our technologists, no matter where they are based around the world.

We’re especially committed to the health and well-being of our community and to ensuring we’re providing the right support.


We've partnered with SafetyWing to bring you remote health insurance that covers you in over 175 countries. That's right – wherever your journey takes you, you can now enjoy the comfort and security of a single health insurance plan provided by SafetyWing. This means seamless health coverage while traveling between countries, giving you the freedom to explore new places without worry.

SafetyWing is building the first global safety net for remote workers, removing geographical borders that can prove a barrier to equal opportunities and freedom for everyone. At Andela, we believe that innovation and growth happen when boundaries are pushed and horizons are expanded. With this enhanced partnership, we're enabling our community members to explore the world without the stress of navigating complex health insurance systems in different countries. You can now focus on what truly matters – your experiences, your work, and your personal growth.

This healthcare partnership is offered exclusively to our network of Andelans, so to participate in the healthcare scheme, you’ll be required to pay for coverage yourself.

Whether you need inpatient or outpatient care, SafetyWing’s health cover ensures you’re taken care of, with three exclusive plans you can choose from:

Why should you consider healthcare coverage?

Security and well-being: In addition to accessing meaningful employment opportunities, we all want to ensure the safety and well-being of ourselves and our loved ones. Health insurance protects you from the unexpected so that you can support yourself with a sense of security and well-being.

Success: Sound mind in a sound body! Healthcare coverage takes care of your physical and mental health needs, enabling you to thrive in both your personal and work life. This can then help you succeed in a long-term working relationship with your team and organization.

Financial Protection: Even if you’re young, it’s important to be prepared for any eventuality. With health insurance coverage, you can plan for unforeseen health needs and ease the financial burden of high medical bills.
