The MLC 2006 that came into force in 2011 has edited the rules of mandatory basic social protection for commercial vessels.
See Section IV
9 branches have been edited to reach a regime of basic social security for all sailors, including 3 mandatory ones which can be covered by a system of private insurance:
– Sickness and accident benefits
– Compensation in the case of death or permanent, partial or total disability due to an accident
– Daily allowances in the event of accident or illness
None of these points should make a difference between private and professional life.
The coverage of the sailor must be nominative and cover him 24/7 for the entire duration of his employment contract.
The insurance may be purchased individually or in a group.
– For the individual, the subscription can be done directly through our form in the “Individual subscription” section
– For a group subscription we set up a tailor-made plan.
The rates, shown on this site, concern individuals only.
The insurance may be underwritten in Euro €, US Dollars $ and Pounds Sterling (£). The levels of guarantees will be adapted to the currency of subscription.
Payment may be made by bank transfer, direct debit or by bank cheque. Cash is not accepted.
Accident is a sudden event during the duration of the contract. The cause or one of the causes of which, is beyond the control of the INSURED PERSON and causes physical injury to the INSURED PERSON.
ILLNESS Is a damage to the health of the INSURED PERSON, that was not caused by an ACCIDENT, and which shows objective and undeniable symptoms established by a MEDICAL PRACTITIONER.
YES. The insurance is global. This is not simple travel insurance but global social coverage.
For example: You have subscribed your insurance in Euros and you are cared for in Australia. You have the choice of being reimbursed in Euros on your Euros account or in Australian Dollars on your Australian account.
Yes in day care medicine (medical doctor, specialist, physiotherapist, optician, etc.)
Not in the case of hospitalisation (more than one night in hospital). With your insurance card, the hospital team will be in direct contact with the insurance to support the reimbursements.
