Global & Balik Kampung Emergency Assistance Services Now Available to Malaysian Employees

KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA--(Marketwired - December 03, 2013) - Global & Balik Kampung Emergency Services now available in Malaysia with just a simple phone call!

Over 50 Employee Benefits Insurance Brokers & Human Resource Managers of various MNCs gathered together over a hi-tea organized by e-MAS to introduce the Assist America Services in Malaysia. This strategic collaboration between Assist America & e-MAS will now extend emergency evacuation services to employees and their dependants and in addition provides cashless medical services via their employee benefits program.

"With the employee benefits market becoming increasingly competitive, the demand to take care of employee needs is increasing; as such, bundling cashless medical employee benefits along with emergency travel assistance would enable more competitive compensation & benefits packages for corporate & HR Managers alike," says e-MAS Managing Director Dr. S Kamalanathan. "Further with travel becoming increasingly affordable and frequent, the availability of such services will offer peace of mind for Employers, Employees & their families."

"Assist America is pleased to partner with e-MAS to help them differentiate their product offering in the marketplace," said Steve Novkov, Assist America's chief representative in Asia. "The goals of both of our organizations -- to provide our customers with solutions and peace of mind -- are very much aligned." Assist America provides Emergency Travel Assistance for both business & leisure trips that are 150KM away from home, whether local or international. Members should have travelled for less than 90 days to a particular destination to be entitled for coverage. Families of employees are automatically covered for such emergency travel services.

The hi-tea served as a forum for brokers & Human Resource managers to better understand the Assist America services. The General Manager for South East Asia for Assist America from the Philippines Mr Ronaldo T. Estrella presented to the audience the Assist America services in depth and clarified questions from the guests. Guests were also able to network with each other and learn about HR trends practiced in their various companies.
