SafetyWing and Andela: Healthcare coverage for Latin America

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.

In partnership with SafetyWing, we’re bringing premier health insurance to Latin America, namely Brazil, Colombia, and Mexico. 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.

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. 

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:

With SafetyWing health coverage, you’ll receive:

  • Monthly premiums with a one-year commitment.
  • No waiting periods to access health care.
  • No waiting periods and full coverage for pre-existing conditions.
  • Impatient care – up to $1.5M per policy year.
  • Outpatient care – $5000 per policy year.
  • Coverage at any private or public hospital.
  • Coverage during international travel
  • Direct billing for claims over USD 250.
  • Dental care – up to $1500.**
  • Vision care – up to $500.**

*This is not a direct benefit that Andela is covering; this is an offering we’ve brought exclusively to our network of Andelans.
**Applicable for Premium and Premium + Maternity plans.

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.
