Employees temporarily returning to home country


Published on 21 April 2020

With the advent of COVID-19, many expatriate employees have returned to Australia or their home country to work on a temporary basis until they resume their international assignments. It is important that employees have a sound understanding of their international and/or local medical and health covers.

To help employers communicate relevant information regarding international health policy limitations and the impact of Medicare in Australia for employees working temporaily in Australia or their home country, Marsh has designed a one-pager resource tool that employers can share with their impacted employees. The tool helps employees identify what information is relevant to them and the actions they need to take under the current environment.

Please reach out to your Marsh representative if you have any questions or wish to discuss further, or you can email us.
