XL Catlin has launched its accident and health insurance solution in the UK, designed to help businesses protect their people amid emerging risks and heightened security threats.

The insurer’s Protect and Assist offering provides global coverage and combines comprehensive personal accident and business travel insurance with a wide range of support and response services.

According to XL Catlin, clients can effectively build their own solution by cherry-picking from these services and coverages.

“In developing this solution, we recognised we had a great opportunity to totally rethink what a client wants and needs and to build from the ground up a modern product that serves businesses today,” said Patrick Corbett, global head of life, accident & health at XL Catlin.

Corbett said the latest insurance solution “proactively strengthens and supports a client’s duty of care,” protecting their people from unexpected risks in the workplace and when travelling for business.

The services that come with Protect and Assist include pre-travel medical assessment for employees going overseas for long periods and pre-travel medical and security expert advice and detailed preparation reports for current “high risk” areas or perils.

Protect and Assist also has an extensive list of benefits that includes expert medical and security crisis response and evacuation, access to an identity theft helpline, emergency cash advance, and lost baggage location and 24/7 access to qualified counsellors.

The solution also includes cover for death and permanent or temporary disablement. It is for all employees with no pre-existing conditions exclusion and coverage is available for all trades, occupations and activities.
