SATIB appoints

Specialist Southern African insurance broker SATIB has appointed international health insurer InterGlobal to underwrite and administer its Aloe Healthcare Insurance plans. The Aloe Standard and Comprehensive plans are designed to cater for the specialist needs of businesses operating in the tourism and hospitality industry in Africa. Such companies typically employ safari and adventure guides, lodge hospitality staff, wildlife veterinarians and other employees who often work in remote wilderness areas and regularly come face to face with Africa’s ‘Big Five’.

Both Aloe plans are available for use throughout the African continent, allowing members whatever their nationality to move between African countries while maintaining full insurance cover. Employees can receive treatment at their choice of preferred hospitals or clinics, including evacuation to an appropriate medical facility for both critical and non-emergency treatment where adequate treatment is not available locally.
Aloe Standard provides cover for in-patient and day-care treatment as well as evacuation and repatriation benefits. Members of Aloe Comprehensive also benefit from cover for out-patient treatment, the maintenance of chronic medical conditions and extra cover for cancer care. All members have access to the SATIB24 Crisis Call Centre which provides 24/7 incident management services in the event of a medical or personal safety emergency, even in remote, hard to reach areas.
Andre Du Toit, Director, SATIB Insurance Brokers, says,  “We have gone to great lengths to ensure thorough coverage for our members without exclusions or premium loadings for the typical activities and locations associated with tourism in Africa. Adventure activities such as cage diving, hot air ballooning, white water rafting and driving safaris are rarely covered by ‘off-the-shelf’ private medical plans. Coupled with the fact that our members can benefit from cover throughout the African continent, they can be confident that our Aloe plans have been designed very much with them in mind.”
Antony Brown MBE, Regional General Manager - Africa, InterGlobal, adds, “We have worked closely with SATIB to develop the new Aloe plans to meet the typical medical demands of life working in African hospitality and tourism. SATIB’s intimate understanding of the industry together with InterGlobal’s expertise in delivering international health insurance has allowed us to provide exceptional yet affordable cover tailored for businesses operating in the African tourist trade.”
