Aetna (NYSE: AET), a leading global diversified health care solutions company, has been selected by Zurich-based Swiss Life, a leading life and pension insurer, to offer international health care benefits and services for expatriates out of Singapore to its roster of multinational customers, effective immediately.
Aetna's expatriate health care plans replace Swiss Life Singapore's in-house expatriate health care benefit plans.
The deal builds on the relationship announced in July that named Aetna as the United States partner for the Swiss Life Network, a global association of 60 insurance companies and business partners operating in 70 countries. Swiss Life offers comprehensive international and local employee benefit packages to multinational companies through the Swiss Life Network.
"We are pleased to expand our role in the Swiss Life Network to provide its customers in Singapore with high-quality expatriate employee benefits solutions and services tailored to meet their specific needs," said Derek Goldberg, Aetna International's general manager, Southeast Asia. "With our on-the-ground presence in Singapore and our strong global reach, we can provide the personalised, comprehensive service that multinational companies require to ensure their mobile employees have access to quality medical treatment so they can maintain good health."
