Aetna Vietnam offers their Summit plan to groups, starting at just 3 employees. To do this, you must put the policy through a legal Vietnamese entity. Aetna Summit plan offers a lot more flexibility and allows groups to create customized plans levels. Here’s how Aetna Insurance Vietnam offers group health plans for pre-existing conditions:

  • 3-4 employees: Moratorium plan only
  • 5-9 employees: Medical Health Disregarded (MHD)- extra charge
  • 10+ employees: Full Medical Health Disregarded- normal pricing

If you have between 5-9 employees, then you can get Medical Health Disregarded at just 5 employees! That’s the lowest minimums in the entire industry, not just in Vietnam, but globally! However, because there are so few employees to help offset the risk, there are additional fees to do this. Once you get to 10+ employees, then you can get a normal MHD plans, which is a much better value than Aetna’s personal Ultracard plans.

This is one of the best group health insurance policies, not just in Vietnam but in all of Asia! The team at Tenzing Pacific Services highly recommends Aetna for companies who have a budget of at least $1,500/employee/year.

Aetna Insurance Vietnam is one of the premier providers for people with pre-existing medical conditions. Here at Tenzing, if one of our clients is applying with a pre-existing condition, Aetna is one of the providers we will always recommend. If Aetna says no, then you can bet every other personal health insurance provider will say no as well.

Aetna Vietnam offers two types of applications:

  1. Full Medical Underwriting: a medical declaration will need to be done for each person, which is quite extensive and specfiic about a variety of medical treatments
  2. Moratorium Underwriting: a very quick applications, where you just declare that you understand pre-exisiting conditions will not be covered

Processing Times:

  • Moratorium: 2-5 hours
  • Full Medical Underwriting clean application: 1-2 business days
  • Full Medical Underwriting condition(s) declared: 2-4 business days

Aetna insurance Vietnam offers a variety of payments installments, including:

  • Annual
  • Semi-Annual (+5%)
  • Quarterly (+7.50%)

For groups with Aetna Summit, there is 4% fee for quarterly and 3% fee for semi-annual.

You can pay via bank transfer or with a card of your choice in USD or VND. You have 30 days to pay from your start or renewal date. Whether you’re on a personal or group policy, you can get a VAT invoice. Though you do not have to pay 10% VAT fee as health insurance is exempt from VAT fee in Vietnam.

Aetna Vietnam fully covers COVID-19 related treatments up to your policy’s benefits and limits. They will not cover quarantine costs unless you’ve been dianosed.

Aetna will provide a COVID-19 certificate upon request, which confirms that you’re currently insured and that the plan covers COVID-19.

The main thing that Aetna Vietnam doesn’t offer is for any way to reduce the premium by reducing the coverage area. So even if you rarely leave South East Asia, you’re paying for worldwide rates. In addition, Aetna doesn’t have affordable maternity plans, the ability to mix & match between different family members or any options for Savings Plans or Life Insurance.
