The product is aimed at expatriates and their families or companies who are looking to cover employees abroad. During the Covid-19 pandemic, PassportCard offers its German customers 24/7 on-call medical advice in German without the risk of going to see a doctor.
PassportCard decided to offer the product now, as the coronavirus outbreak has left many German expats wondering whether they have sufficient medical coverage.
In the event of a claim, PassportCard pays in real time, without the customer having to pay in advance. For this purpose, the company developed a debit card which can be topped up in advance with a calculated amount that the customer can pay directly at the doctor’s office, saving paperwork for the customer and service provider.
Alon Ketzef, Founder and President of the Davidshield-PassportCard Group, said: “At the moment, we are increasingly being approached by Germans who are worried about relatives abroad who are stuck in a foreign country with limited access to healthcare and often without the possibility to travel home. PassportCard offers German expats full insurance cover with 24-hour customer service, including the opportunity to talk to the German doctors of our partner MD-Medicus. This allows Germans abroad to receive German medical assistance around the clock, from the comfort of their home.”
