Allianz Care, the global health brand of Allianz Partners, has forged an alliance with Mozambique-based insurance provider ICE Insurance to offer international health-insurance services for expats and locals.

The agreement will enable Allianz Care’s existing and new customers to benefit from ICE Insurance’s local experience, knowledge and contacts without incurring any additional cost, while continuing to have access to a comprehensive level of healthcare cover.

The plans available to Mozambique-based groups include medical evacuation and emergency outpatient treatment; cover provided on a medical history disregarded (MHD) basis; a round the clock security assistance hotline; security advice about countries; counselling, legal and financial support; and health and wellbeing advice.

Allianz Partners CEO of international health Ida Luka-Lognoné said: “We are delighted to be joining forces with ICE Insurance in Mozambique and look forward to continuing to provide a world-class service for our clients there and throughout the wider region of Africa.

“We have specifically designed our standard international plans to suit the needs of both expats and locals, in order to give them peace of mind, so they can focus on settling into their new homes safe in the knowledge that their health and wellbeing, and that of their families, is taken care of.”

ICE Insurance COO Edward Capel said: “ICE Insurance has been operating in Mozambique for over 21 years, during which time we have developed significant local knowledge and contacts across the region.

“We are thrilled to announce this partnership with Allianz Care today and look forward to combining our local knowledge with their global expertise to deliver world class international health insurance solutions for expats and locals based in Mozambique.”
