summer tropical beach background; glasses and palm tree reflexThe weather is nice, the kids are home for summer, are you ready for a vacation? It is safe to say that many of us would have the same answer to that question. YES! Even though most cruise line crew members have been home, as cruising has been at a standstill, we know how hard this year has been for everyone mentally and physically. Rest and relaxation are crucial, with a tumultuous year seemingly more and more in our rear view, and summer front and center, it may be time to start planning a getaway. While we are not out of the woods completely in terms of the pandemic, there is no denying that the world is itching to get “back to normal”. However, there are some important steps you need to consider when you decide it is time to get away.

As we have all witnessed, having proper medical coverage is more important now, than ever before. There are still some unknowns regarding travel, and who knows about potential hotspots. Having necessary preparations in place can make the difference between a stressful or stress-free time away. No one wants their summer vacation ruined, especially with it being the first one in a while. Which is why we decided to put together a checklist for you and your family to make sure you are “insurance ready” for your next holiday or vacation!

Plan Ahead

Plan now so you do not have to worry about it later. We realize the last thing you want to think about when planning a fun and exciting trip is insurance but being “insurance prepared” can help ensure a stress-free enjoyable time. When planning, ask yourself these questions:

  • If you get sick or injured, are you covered in the country you are traveling to by an existing insurance policy?
  • Are you required to have proof of medical coverage in the country you are traveling?
  • If you do have proper insurance, does it have ample coverage to protect you and your family in case of an emergency?

In addition to insurance related preparations, there are some medical housekeeping preparations you should consider as well:

  • Do you have enough of your medication for the time you will be away?
  • If you lost or forgot your medication, do you have a list of the meds you take and can you obtain them in the country you are visiting?
  • Do you know who to contact in the event of an emergency?

Things to Consider

When thinking about medical coverage, there are some things you should consider, depending on what your trip has in store. For example, does the medical plan include the following:

· Will there be coverage for the unexpected illness or injury that occurs while you are traveling to your destination?

· Is there evacuation cover in case of serious injury?

· Does your policy have restrictions on activities considered to be “Extreme” sports?

· Does your plan have a mobile app, and have you uploaded it to your phone?

· Is telemedicine covered? (i.e., telehealth or Dr. on demand)

Obviously, there is no way to totally plan for the unexpected, however that is why you plan ahead. As different policies offer different benefits, you may wish to check your policy wording for any specific exclusions. It is recommended that you always travel with your ID card, a list of emergency contacts, and have access to your insurance policy. Be sure to stay tuned to our website for future blogs and articles explaining what to do in case you need to use the coverage, and how to properly navigate your way through the claims process.

an asian chinese family moving into new house admiring their houseLife insurance is not always a topic that people want to discuss for obvious reasons, however, given the state of the world, it needs to be at the forefront of everyone’s minds when it comes to your future plans. According to Bankrate, “54% of Americans had life insurance coverage in 2020.” As we’ve seen over the past year, anything can happen, and it is always better to be prepared and not need, than to need and not be prepared.

What does Term Life Insurance mean?

Term life insurance refers to a type of life insurance policy that offers coverage in the event of a tragedy for a specific amount of time, or a "term". Depending on how long you need coverage for, and the amount of coverage you need, term policies can protect your loved ones from 5-30 years with a death benefit anywhere from $100,000, to possibly as much as 25 times your salary.

Why Term Life Insurance over Whole Life Insurance?

There are essentially two basic options when it comes to life insurance:

  • Term Life, also known as temporary life insurance.
  • Whole Life, also known as permanent life insurance.

Term life insurance may benefit you from several standpoints. Most importantly, it is more affordable than whole life insurance, given an equal coverage amount. That is because the coverage is only for a limited time, rather than for the rest of your life, so there is no guaranteed payout which means less risk for the insurance company. The additional money left in your pocket can be used to invest and build assets for when your term is completed.

When to buy Term Life Insurance?

As you now know, term life insurance covers you for a temporary amount of time. One of the biggest factors in determining when to buy a term life policy and is anticipating when and how long others may be dependent on your income.

  • Did you just have a child?
  • Did you recently get married?
  • Do you have a mortgage?

These are 3 of the most common reason people elect to purchase a term life insurance policy. Coverage until your child is grown, to cover your spouse until sufficient assets are acquired, or until your debt is paid off.

Do you want to leave more to loved ones? Cover potential loss of income to the household? Then you will need to account for your debts and add more coverage beyond them in order to leave a legacy. Our experts can help you formulate what amount would be best for you in your situation and budget in this case, or any case for that matter. Have further questions about life insurance?

Young woman with suitcase staring at viewWe have all thought about it at one point. What would it be like living abroad? The allure of diving into a new culture, discovering opportunities, and learning about yourself is something that many have at least thought about. Some get to experience this due to their job and have to work in a place outside of their home country. While living the life of an expat can certainly have its positives, there are some stressful situations you can find yourself in. One very important reason that comes to mind is assuring you have the proper medical coverage you need, especially being in a foreign place.

What is the best expat health insurance?

If you are an expatriate, and are in the market for expatriate health insurance, you may find yourself overwhelmed with the options of plans to select. So, rather than asking, “What is the best expat health insurance?”, try asking “What do I want or need in my expat health insurance. Let me explain.

What do I need in my expat health insurance?

First and foremost, you need to make sure your medical plan will cover you internationally, as many U.S. health insurances do not include international coverage. It is also important to do some research about the health insurance requirements of your destination country. A number of countries will not let you relocate unless you have health insurance coverage in place, and some require specific coverage, such as medical evacuation or repatriation. Also, if you work will require additional travel, you will need to make sure you will have coverage in those destinations as well. 

What do I want in my expat health insurance?

What you want in your policy really begins to go in line with your budget. For example, how much coverage do you want now that your necessities are covered? Do you have an idea of what you want your deductible or copays to be? Once your needs are met, depending on your budget, you should be able to customize your health insurance to fit your particular lifestyle and budget.

How can I assure that I have everything I want and need?

That is easy, work with a top-rated insurance broker! When looking for the best insurance plan for you and possibly your loved ones, it is always a good idea to work with the experts. For one, they are up to date on everchanging laws and regulations, which benefits you, as you have enough on your plate planning a move to a foreign country. Second, they are experts in the field of insurance, and will be able to help you on all the tricky lingo, such as deductible and max-out-of-pocket. Brokers also have access to a multitude of carriers, so if you have a list of coverage options that you want, they will not be limited to one insurance company, and should be able to offer you a “menu” of different options depending on your budget.

Group of people having meeting and disscusing at the officeIn today’s world, employers and employees alike are looking to find an edge over the competition. Receiving benefits from your employer is something that all employees appreciate.

Why Offer Employee Benefits?

Statistics show that offering employee benefits is a key to inspiring a healthy and loyal workforce, as well as attracting and retaining the top talent. According to LinkedIn’s Global Talent Trends 2020 report, the number one reason Millennials leave their positions is because of compensation and benefits! Followed by advancement opportunities and more challenge. Many people still think of Millennials as a young group with little experience, however, that generation is now becoming established in a professional setting, as their ages range from early 40’s to late 20’s. Which means it is time to follow the trend!

Reduce Turnover

One of the major benefits of offering benefits is reducing turnover. While attracting top talent is important, retaining it is just as important. There are both tangibles and intangibles associated with hiring and keeping your staff, let us consider the knowledge, skills and abilities top talent take when they leave, consider the gap that is left until another candidate is up to speed which can be a long process. Additionally, the long-term strain of added responsibilities on the remaining staff can negatively affect morale leading to additional turnover. According to Willis Towers Watson, 78% of employees said they are more likely to stay with their employer because of their benefit program, so it would seem like a no-brainer right?

Save Money

It is time to talk about money, while it may initially reduce your bottom line, adding benefits could actually save you money, especially in the long run. According to TLNT Talent Management and HR, the cost of replacing an employee can range from 50% to 400% of their annual salary. Many decision makers do not think of the costs associated with a new hire, from training, classes, tools and equipment, etc. Those are just the tangible costs, but there are several intangible costs as well, team fit, growing pains, and knowledge of products or industry.

Sustainability

One thing all businesses should be working toward is sustainability, which is the sweet spot between profit, people, and the planet, “the 3Ps”. Aligning your strategic objectives with your mission and values will contribute to your sustainability. Building and maintaining a good company culture has an array of positive outcomes the 3Ps, happy employees stay longer, they do better work and have a positive impact on your customers and the community. How do you build and maintain a good culture? Well employers who take a genuine interest in their employees well-being will create the best working environment. Providing the right benefits plays a dynamic role in one’s well-being.

Selecting the right health insurance plan for you or your employees can be a difficult task, but the experienced insurance brokers at MHG are glad to help you sort through the terminology and key features to determine the best health insurance plan for your situation. Our Insurance Specialists will help you assemble a complete insurance offering that includes health insurance, gap insurance coverage, life insurance, disability, and more. Call us today at 954-828-1819 or visit us online at mhginsurance.com for help in selecting the ideal health insurance plan for you and/or your employees.

In today’s world, employers and employees alike are looking to find an edge over the competition. Receiving benefits from your employer is something that all employees appreciate.

A luxury yacht docked in the marina.Special jobs require special insurance, and that couldn’t be more true when it comes to choosing the insurance for your crew. Having your yacht crew covered with proper insurance goes deeper than selecting a good policy for everyone or trying to save money here and there. As you may know, there is often a lot of turnover among crews, which also bring added costs and expenses. According to Superyacht News “Each time a lower-rank crew member leaves, it costs the yacht owner up to €5,000, even €10,000. With officers, it can easily get up to €20,000 in flights, paperwork, specific boat training, safety drills, uniforms, ‘lost’ inventories, mistakes and breakage.”

Offering a competitive benefits package could be a way to keep crew members happy and engaged. There are several different policies that you should consider if you are the decision maker. Whether you are a Yacht Owner, Yacht Captain, or the person who has been delegated the responsibility of selecting the insurance for everyone on board, we are here to help!

Medical/Health Insurance

Health or medical insurance can speak for itself. While most people are familiar with having health insurance or what comes with it, there are many different aspects of a plan to consider. What’s the deductible? Is there a co-pay? What about co-insurance? Does it include dental and vision? If you feel overwhelmed, please feel free to contact us for assistance and guidance on what plan would fit your yacht crew best.

Life insurance

While many consider life insurance as a personal option, there are a growing number of yachts that are including life insurance coverage as part of their benefits package. Offering coverage for your crew may give them some assurance that if anything happens to them while they are at sea, their loved ones will be more able to cope financially back home. Typically, the coverage amount is fixed in increments of $10,000, up to $100,000.

Accidental Death and Dismemberment

Accidental death and dismemberment, also known as AD&D, is very similar to life insurance. The difference is that there is only a benefit from an accidental death, or dismembering injury. This type of insurance typically provides coverage 24/7, not just while at work.

Personal Accident

Personal accident is similar to dismemberment coverage and is an important insurance policy for your crew members. Often referred to as PA cover, personal accident insurance will pay out a sum of money for permanent injury (and sometimes permanent illness). It is often confused with medical insurance; however, it doesn’t provide coverage for any medical bills or doctors’ appointments, it simply provides a one-time payment after experiencing a permanent injury or illness.

Disability Insurance

Disability insurance is a great way to offer coverage for your crew in the event they get hurt and cannot work for a short period of time. Having this policy will cover a percentage of the person’s wages if they are unable to perform their occupation and can last for up to two years due to an injury or illness. If the disabling event becomes permanent, the personal accident (if purchased as above) may kick-in and pay a lump sum.

Hospital Indemnity

Hospital indemnity insurance at first glance would make you think that it covers hospital visits, however that is not the case. Think of this type of insurance as a poor man’s disability insurance. Depending on the policy, it provides a benefit each day your crew member is in the hospital. For example, if someone were hurt on the job and had to go to the hospital, the insurance would pay that person $100 per day that they are admitted in the hospital. This does not cover their hospital bills; it just provides the person with an added benefit.

Features That Are Not Features

While the above list is not exhaustive of every option and feature, one thing to note is that some insurance providers tout features that do not hold true. For example, there is no such thing as a Maritime Labour Convention (MLC) compliant yacht crew insurance. It sounds good, but it means nothing. Another thing to be wary of is a plan that says, ‘unlimited coverage’. Almost always with international policies, there are restrictions and limitations on the benefits such that the ‘unlimited’ part is quite ‘limited’.

Having proper insurance is important whether you are at sea or docked at a shipyard. MHG is your specialized broker when it comes to crew insurance. Our insurance specialists have the knowledge and experience to find the policy that works best for you. If you are interested in purchasing, or have any questions about yacht crew insurance or travel insurance, please contact us at +1 954 828 1819 or +44 (0) 1624 678668 or visit us online at mhginsurance.com.

Special jobs require special insurance, and that couldn’t be truer when it comes to choosing the insurance for your crew.

Palm Trees Before A Tropical Storm or HurricaneHurricane season is almost here, which means now is the time to make sure that you are prepared and ready in the event of a storm. According to the Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS), the nation’s largest advocacy, services and safety group for recreational boaters, “more than 63,000 recreational boats were damaged or destroyed as a result of both Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma, with a combined dollar damage estimate of $655 million.” While those storms were incredibly dangerous, even a weaker storm can cause loads of damage. So, do yourself a favor and follow this checklist to get yourself ready for the upcoming season.

Move It!

The best way to protect the boat may be to move it. Smaller vessels can be kept safe on their trailer and strapped down, while larger vessels may need to be moved to a protected marina. However you plan to protect your vessel, it is good to have all the logistics in place of how and where you will move it when the time comes. If it has to stay docked or stay at a marina, do your due diligence and make sure all the lines are in good shape and that you have enough to double line it and attach to high pilings to allow for potential sea-level rise. Also, make sure that any canvas tops, furling genoas, sails, and cockpit covers are removed.

Review Your Policy

It’s essential for you to review your insurance policy annually and to understand your coverage entirely. For instance, your policy may cover a portion of the cost to move your boat.

Charge Your Batteries

Prepare for flooding and heavy rains, which means the batteries to run your automatic bilge pumps need to have as much juice as possible. Also, consider adding backup batteries and shut off all other nonessential devices that may consume electricity.

Keep Documents Safe

Compile all of your important documents and keep them in a safe place. Documents should include your insurance policy, a list of key contacts, recent pictures of the vessel, registration, inventory, lease agreement, and title or loan documents.

Monitor Forecasts

Stay up to date about what is going on in the tropics. Luckily with these storms, you will have time to execute your plan, as long as you stay on top of things.

Be Careful After a Storm

Being around the water after a hurricane is incredibly dangerous. There could be a downed powerline in the water or a hot wire from a generator. Do not enter the water, and contact local authorities to make sure waterways are clear and safe.

Be prepared this hurricane season by performing all of these tasks BEFORE a hurricane is heading your way. Having proper insurance is vital in every aspect of life. Whether you are at sea needing international coverage, looking for adequate life insurance coverage, going on a vacation, etc. MHG is your specialized broker. Our insurance specialists have the knowledge and experience to find the policy that works best for you.

Hurricane season is almost here, which means now is the time to make sure that you are prepared and ready in the event of a storm.

Sunset on Maldives island, water villas resortFirst things first, to know how something works, you must know what it is. So, what is trip cancellation insurance?

What is trip cancellation insurance?

Trip Cancellation Insurance is an insurance policy that protects your investment when it comes to a trip being cancelled, including yacht charters. It differs from Travel Insurance, which provides international medical insurance coverage for when you are traveling abroad, outside of your home country. According to ValuePenguin (Lending Tree), 48% of Americans cancelled their summer travel plans due to COVID-19. While we seem to be trending in a different direction a year later, one cannot ignore the reality that the travel industry may never truly be the same with tighter restrictions, and new rules and regulations making it more difficult to travel.

How does trip cancellation work?

Booking a nice vacation is often not a spur of the moment or spontaneous experience. Typically, trips are booked months in advance, with several scenarios that can happen in that given time to alter your plans, even forcing you to cancel. For example, if you booked yacht charter for $50,000 for your family 6 months in advance of the trip, chances are there are a few nonrefundable expenses you also had to book including airfare, hotel accommodations, activities, etc. One week before you are slated to leave, your wife becomes sick and is unable to travel, therefore forcing you to cancel your plans. Trip cancellation insurance would then reimburse you for the trip, allowing you to put that money back into your bank account or use it for another trip!

What is covered by trip cancellation insurance?

A good trip cancellation insurance plan should protect you from many issues that may come up causing you to cancel your plans. Examples of items typically covered by a good trip cancellation insurance policy include:

· Sickness, injury or death of insured, a family member, a travel companion, a business partner or a child caregiver

· Primary residence or destination being rendered uninhabitable

· Documented theft of passports/visas

· Involved in a merger, job loss or job relocation

· Documented traffic accident

· Unannounced strike

· Inclement weather that causes cessation of services provided by your common carrier

· Mechanical breakdown of the common carrier

· Evacuations due to natural disasters

· Emergency military duty for national disaster

· A terrorist incident

· Revoked military leave

· Bankruptcy or Default of Travel Provider*

· NOAA hurricane warning at destination

· Court order to appear as a witness

· Jury duty

· Quarantine

· Hijack

According to Bankrate, Americans spend an average of $1,979 per person on summer vacations. That amount does not really compare to what it costs to charter a yacht, as that can be tens, sometimes, hundreds of thousands of dollars. No one wants to lose that investment due to an unexpected event, which is why we say, plan for what is not on the itinerary.

Why Yacht Charters?

Given what is currently going on in the world, we are seeing that many people are looking to use yacht charters instead of cruises due to the social distancing implications and overall wellbeing concerns, and being able to limit who they come into contact with, as well as the destinations they are going. With certain locations opening and getting ready for tourists, such as the Bahamas, its clear to see why this is going to be an attractive alternative in the coming months.

Life is unpredictable and plans often change. One of the basic issues that insurance protects us against is the fact that life is unpredictable. So, while you may not be able to prevent a situation from happening, you can prevent an issue from becoming a worst-case scenario.

What is a PPO?

Happy male medical doctor portrait in hospital. Portrait of a male doctor with laptop sitting at desk in medical office. Portrait of a happy young doctor at medical office desk.Are you trying to decide what type of insurance plan would best benefit your employee group? Let us help explain some options!

Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) is a type of health insurance plan that operates with a network of participating providers such as primary care physicians (PCP), doctors, and hospitals. Typically, costs are less when associated with providers that are within said network, however you can still use providers outside of the network for an additional cost.

As opposed to a PPO, a Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) is a type of health insurance plan that operates with a network of participating providers, much like a PPO, however there is no coverage offered if you use a provider that is outside of the network.

What is the difference between a PPO and an HMO?

The main difference between a PPO and an HMO is that a PPO offers you more freedom to see the providers you want to, whether they are in your network or not. While a PPO still operates with a network of providers, there is still coverage offered if you choose not to go within network.

What are the benefits of a PPO?

· Flexibility to see a primary care physician you like whether in network or not

· Freedom to see doctors and specialists without the need of a referral, including those out-of-network

Who does a PPO work best for?

While PPOs are considered to be a more luxury option, don’t let that label fool you, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation’s 2019 Health Benefits Survey, “PPOs are the most common plan type, enrolling 44% of covered workers in 2019.” Even though they are the most common, those who benefit most from these plans would be people with chronic health issues, those that require to see a specialist often, or those who are elderly. Typically, the older you get, the more time you spend at the doctor, which is why a PPO is so appealing to people who frequent doctors, because they get a say in who they get to see. Maybe you are more comfortable with someone, or already have years’ worth of trust and experience with a specialist, sometimes these attributes can be seen as priceless.

Insurance broker reviewing policy documents with a happy customerIn case you have not heard, this year marks MHG’s 30th anniversary! As a result of that, it is natural to do some reflection and part of that is focusing on what has made and continues to make MHG so special.

What sets MHG apart from other brokers?

MHG is one of the leading companies to push for crew benefits across both the yachting and cruise industries. 30 years ago, the marine industry started to boom, and MHG has been there from the beginning championing the wellbeing and livelihoods of crew members around the globe. So really and truly, MHG is more than an insurance broker, we are a wellness company!

With our growth in the industry and MHG becoming more and more diverse, MHG also began to offer other areas over coverage such as liability and casualty, travel, and life.

What are common mistakes other brokers make?

A good insurance broker is an asset, not a hurdle. Brokers get a bad reputation, no matter what industry they are in. Part of that is the notion that they are in it for themselves. When it comes to MHG, that could not be further than truth, we pride ourselves on working for you, not the insurance company. If more brokers operated that way, the way they are supposed to, they would be viewed much differently.

What is the best piece of advice you could give to a potential client?

Take your time and do your research. Find a broker who is knowledgeable about the specific type(s) of insurance you need. Follow the broker’s advice, which should not always be to buy the cheapest or most expensive policy. In fact, cost alone should never be the deciding factor when choosing any insurance policy.

Having proper insurance is important. MHG is your specialized broker when it comes to marine specific insurance. Our insurance specialists have the knowledge and experience to find the policy that works best for you.

Portrait of a group of confident businesspeople standing together in an officeThe working world is ever changing, especially given the events of the past year. While businesses are performing self-analyses to see where they can save money such as working from home, less travel, etc., one area that should be reinvested in is employee benefits!

How much do benefits cost per employee?

There is no one answer to that questions and are based on many factors, however according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average cost of employee benefits for employers in December of 2020 was $12.07 per hour. As you know, there are companies that have extensive packages, and some that offer the bare minimum, so the real questions should be, “How much am I willing to spend on benefits for my employees?”

What benefits are critical?

The short answer, all of them! However, we understand that businesses and companies have a budget, and in order to give a proper recommendation, we would have to understand what your overall goals are, and what you are trying to accomplish. Are you trying to limit employee turnover? Are you trying to attract high level candidates? How much of an investment is it to fully train a new hire? These are just a few questions you can ask yourself in order to get a better understanding of where you currently stand, and how you can potentially improve. After all, the best prospect is an existing client, the same can be said about your employees!

That being said, while health insurance is a given, the other most critical benefit to include in your benefits package is disability insurance. Protecting your employee’s well-being in the event that something happens to keep them from being able to perform their job is increasingly being viewed as a necessity.

What benefits are a bonus?

Something that is pretty cost effective for the benefit it provides to your employees is Group Life Insurance. While most businesses that offer benefits to employees have a well-rounded approach, life insurance is an option that protects more than just your employees, but their loved ones as well. Offering life insurance can definitely be a way to set your business apart from the competition.
