Aetna International – New office opens in Toronto, Canada

Hello, Toronto: What Aetna's Canada presence means for in- and out-bound expats

Aetna International has committed to better serving the needs of its global customers locally by opening the doors to a new office in downtown Toronto. The new office will provide local assistance and customised health and wellness benefits solutions to Canadian employers with employees abroad, as well as foreign companies with employees living in Canada.

The need for local care navigation support

At Aetna, we understand the challenges expatriates face in settling and accessing health care in the country. Having a health insurance policy is the logical first step for expats but knowing how to make full use of its benefits and how to access primary care, mental and behavioural health resources and referrals to secondary care is a significant challenge for many.

“We are thrilled to open an office in Toronto to better serve the needs of our global customers, locally,” said Jason McCormick, Head of Sales and Service for Canada, Aetna International.  “We understand that health care and how it’s accessed varies around the world, making it increasingly important to have local representation with experts that truly understand the local nuances.  We recognise that there is an opportunity to better serve the needs of the expatriate population in Canada and our goal is to help them adeptly navigate the system and their newly adopted home. Our goal is to provide the best possible service and access to health care for expats from those who understand Canada’s health system best - Canadians.”

Well-being: More than health

The needs of expats extend beyond responding to physical health episodes when they occur. Today’s international professionals' needs also include mental well-being, from stress management to financial management, understanding their health data, support managing health records and making logistical arrangements for care and treatment. We understand that there are significant benefits to cultural and foreign affairs orientation, providing security and safety briefings on host countries as well as crisis support in the event of a medical or personal safety emergency.

“As the world becomes more connected, more people are living, working and learning around the globe.  Our vision is to support the growing number of Canadian expats both home and abroad and ensure that they have access to convenient and affordable health care, regardless of where they are,” concludes Jason.

The new Aetna Canada office is in downtown Toronto at 145 King Street West.  The office will employ 10 staff members by the end of 2018 with the goal of tripling local headcount in market within a two-year span.
