Temos Conference topic: Laurent Pochat-Cottilloux - An insurer's perspective on medical travel
The field of insurance products that leverage the worldwide growth in medical travel is a very dynamic subsector of health insurance. It includes products that include coverage for cross-border medical treatment, from travel insurance to medical complications insurance, overseas student health insurance and international health insurance. This presentation will give an insight into how global insurance companies perceive this growing market, and which critical success factors they have to consider.
