Accident insurance

GPAFI provides insurance in case of non-professional injuries in which benefits are:

  • Unlimited expenses for treatment during five years following an accident
  • Capital in case of disability following an accident
  • Capital in case of death following an accident

The insurance coverage can be purchased for one or other of the benefits listed above that are independent of each other and at very attractive premium.

Benefits for unlimited expenses for treatment during five years following an accident are complementary to a basic scheme, such as the staff health insurance of an international organization.

This coverage may be particularly useful to international civil servants whose basic plan contains limitations or suspensions of benefits. This is particularly the case of accidents resulting from the practice of risk sports which are not covered by the basic plan (scuba-diving, mountain-climbing, caving, hand-gliding, gliding, rock-climbing, rafting, canyoning, martial arts, etc.).

In the event of a ski accident, the airline transport of the injured (plane, helicopter) is covered without reimbursement limit; if search operations to locate or to rescue the injured are necessary, they are supported up to CHF 20’000.- per insured person.

The capital in case of disability or death can be insured of up to CHF 1 million.

The capital in case of disability is converted into a lifetime pension if the accident occurs beyond the age of 65.
