Ensure Well-Being With Expatriate Wellness Health Insurance in Singapore

Companies trying to increase productivity should offer their employees a wellness program to complement existing health insurance plans. Employees eating healthier meals and exercising regularly have better job performance and lower absenteeism from work. Educating employees about health, nutrition and fitness empowers them to explore a healthier lifestyle and set their own health goals. Armed with facts about their eating habits, sleep patterns and workouts, employees can make smart decisions that help them maintain their health.

Consequently, this directly contributes to fewer doctor visits. Medical issues dramatically reduce when a clean diet and routine exercise are added to the mix. Lowering the health risk of your employees can improve their mental and physical well-being. It can also support your cost containment strategies by reducing the overall cost of your expat health cover. Just having a wellness program on top of your health insurance could drop your premiums, but encouraging employees to incorporate it into their daily routine can be impactful!

We are here to help you to review your employee health risk, develop a wellness program strategy and help your business foster a holistic approach towards supporting healthier professionals. We match you with insurers who are leading the way in innovative wellness program solutions that go alongside existing health insurance policies.

Reach out to our Corporate Solutions team today and let us help you map out a strategy for your expat health insurance needs; be it wellness-initiated or health insurance plans.

What Is Included In Wellness Program Initiatives and Health Insurance For Expats in Singapore?

Let’s have a closer look at what health and wellness modules might entail when it comes to incorporating it into your Singapore-based international health insurance plan:

  • Health Screenings
  • Vaccinations
  • Mental Wellbeing support
  • Visits to a registered dietician
  • Health Risk Assessments
  • Second medical opinion services

Mental well-being issues are now firmly in the sight of the C-suite. Whilst work is often good for mental health, a negative working environment can lead to physical and mental health problems. Depression and anxiety have a significant economic impact; estimated costs to the global economy is US$ 1 trillion per year in lost productivity.

There are many effective actions that organizations can take to promote mental health in the workplace; such actions may also benefit productivity. Mental health interventions should be delivered as part of an integrated health and well-being strategy that covers prevention, early identification, support and rehabilitation. Thus, implementing a wellness program alongside existing employee health insurance plans provide a holistic approach to taking care of your employees in Singapore - both expats and locals.
