Allianz Going Above and Beyond

As many of you know, nearly 6 months ago, we transitioned from Aetna International as our insurance partner because they were exiting the international private medical insurance industry. We are pleased to report that our overall experience with our new partner Allianz has been very positive.There have been some teething issues as we and they have had to learn and adapt to what we both need.  Even through difficult situations, their ongoing support and positive interactions have reaffirmed that we have chosen a great partner to help fulfill our mission.We have already had a significant experience where they went above and beyond for one of our members.  We had a member on a short-term trip receive an incurable diagnosis while traveling in Asia; this initially involved an evacuation and very expensive treatment.  The issue was that her policy ended, and costs beyond this would not normally be covered.  However, Allianz was willing to look at the person and not just the numbers.  They not only helped pay for her ongoing treatment, but they also evacuated her back to the United States once she was stable enough to fly.“We are pleased with the support Allianz and Talent Trust gave us! Overwhelmed at all the support! It was such a blessing!”                       – Our member’s mother

Renewal Premiums 2023

From 2010 to 2018, Talent Trust experienced premium increases that averaged 4.2% per year for Alpha and 7.8% for Omega.

Since 2018, each year, we have been able to reduce or hold our premiums.

As many of you will have experienced in some form or another, inflation has had a significant impact on prices for many things, including the cost of medication and medical treatment.

This year our Omega claims have stayed at a level where we can again hold premiums.

Alpha premiums will see an increase as claims have risen.  Overall, with the previous years’ decreases factored in, this will mean an increase of 5% over what members were paying in 2018.  Although it is an increase, this is amazing when considered over the past 5 years.

Those benefiting from our Give Back program, which gives back 3% of premiums to members, or those who have increased their No Claims Bonus, will see a smaller increase or a reduction in their premiums.

Our Growing Membership

Over the past 2 years, our membership has been growing faster than in the past 10 years. New members tell us that they have heard great things about us from our members, and this is why they joined.  Thank you to everyone who told a friend about us this year.  You will be receiving US$100 off your next premium.

Growth helps us to provide more services to help our members be their best. So please don’t stop telling your friends. And if you have a good experience, let us know on social media, Whatsapp, or email.

Our growing membership means that we get to hire more staff to maintain our high levels of personal support. Every one of our members will have a dedicated TT contact by the end of the year. We have hired 5 new team members in the past 2 years to ensure that we are effective and relational in supporting you. Click here to see our team
