Garanti BBVA Group Romania signed a strategic partnership with Signal Iduna Asigurare Reasigurare, to offer all its employees a new benefit, consisting of a health insurance with wide coverage, starting this April. The health insurance is an addition to the current medical subscription that all Garanti BBVA employees are already benefiting of and it can be extended to members of the employees` families.
The health insurance, provided by the Signal Iduna Asigurare Reasigurare, will support hospitalization and surgery, serious illness, and oncology treatments. The insurance policy covers, among others, continuous hospitalization allowance and medical treatments. Other services covered by this plan include second medical opinion, reconstructive plastic surgery, and alternative treatments. Garanti BBVA Romania employees will be able to use their insurance in over 1,200 medical private clinics and hospitals in Romania as well as in Europe and Turkey, for certain treatments.
“The most valuable asset of Garanti BBVA Romania is the human capital we have, and we are grateful for the devotion, commitment and dedication our colleagues proved during the years, especially recently in this challenging period of Covid. We believe our partnership with Signal Iduna Asigurare Reasigurare gives us the opportunity to offer our colleagues an important benefit for their health, safety, and peace of mind, by adding this health insurance to their benefits package. We are convinced that such new benefit will be highly appreciated and will set the standard in our industry”, stated Çağri Memişoğlu, Deputy General Manager of Garanti BBVA Romania.
Additionally, the insured person will receive the equivalent value of the costs of the medical services not covered by the public health system and for which the insured person paid the costs of the medical services based on an invoice / receipt.
“The past year has recalibrated the way in which extra-salary benefits are perceived by both employees and employers, and has reorganized the priorities in terms of the value they truly offer. At a time when health is the main concern for all of us and the access to medical services can be difficult, we are happy to start this new partnership with Garanti BBVA Romania for which the protection and safety of its employees are paramount”, stated Nicolae Trofin, Member of the Management Board, Signal Iduna Asigurare Reasigurare.
The health insurance segment showed positive dynamics in the first 3 quarters of 2020, with an increase of about 18% compared to the same period of the previous year, at a subscription volume of about RON 351 million, according to data released by the Financial Supervision Authority.
