Au-pairs and nannies that are coming from abroad to look after children in the United States need to have relevant and comprehensive Aupair health insurance. If you are hiring a nanny from abroad to work for you, make sure that your employee is properly covered. If you are a nanny coming to work for an American family, ask if aupair health insurance will be provided.
If health insurance is not part of your employment package, you will need to purchase it yourself. Specific aupair insurance is designed to cover accidents and illnesses that may occur when you are living and working in the United States.
The cost of healthcare in the US can be very high so it is important all nannies are covered when they work in the country. Buy a plan that originates from a US company, and that is administered in the United States.
Au-pair insurance provides a range of benefits including coverage for doctor’s fees, dental work, emergency medical services, prescription drugs and hospital fees. You can also buy summer au-pair insurance, which is affordable and effective.
