Aetna/Humanis proposition for French expats launches in Paris

Amidst the stunning surroundings of the Musée Jacquemart-André in Paris, French medical insurance brokers enjoyed an evening of celebration on 13th September as leaders from Aetna International and French insurance group Humanis launched an exciting new partnership.

Together, the two companies have created a health and wellness benefits proposition for French expatriates living and working outside of France. The event, attended by representatives from leading brokers, provided the opportunity for insurance professionals to learn more about the partnership’s advantages to their clients.

Guests heard presentations and speeches from directors of both companies including Laurent de Veyrac, Senior Director, Strategic Business Development, Aetna International, and discovered how this unique partnership will increase access to global health care solutions for large corporations and French expats around the world. Sylvaine Emery, Director of International Affairs and Overseas, Humanis, Alexis de Saint-Albin, International Development Director, Humanis, and Mohamad Nizam, Legal Counsel, Aetna International also played key roles at the event. The presenters highlighted how the collaboration will enable better control of health care costs in the U.S. for Humanis’ members and the provision of a health care solution that meets regulatory requirements in the UAE. This simplified health experience is personal, convenient and affordable, and will support members and the future growth aspirations of both companies.

“This partnership is part of our strategy to provide local services to our members worldwide while adapting to national and regional disparities of care,” said David Healy, CEO, Europe, Middle East and Africa, Aetna International. “We look forward to working together with Humanis on improving quality and access to health care for our members around the world.”

The event generated a lot of interest from our guests. Laurent de Veyrac said: “This new partnership provides an excellent opportunity to help French corporations ensure their French expats are healthier and more productive, and that their overseas assignments are more successful as a result. The launch evening provided a great opportunity to network with key brokers and answer their questions about the specifics of our new joint solution. Thank you to all those who played a part in making the event such a success.”
