Australian general insurer offers to pay for people’s medical bills if they lose their job
ANZ has pledged to cover the medical bills of those whose job is no longer at risk of being axed, and offered to pay their medical bills for those who are in the process of being laid off.
The insurance company, which was the largest in Australia until it announced it was closing its doors, has made the offer on its website, along with a short video.
“The reality is that when you lose your job, you have to work a lot harder to get by,” an employee at the A&P branch in Melbourne’s north-west, who asked not to be named, told News.au.
“We are going to work harder than you and pay your bills.”
The offer is a stark contrast to the Australian Government’s current approach to the situation.
While the Government has been reluctant to take any action against employers that have cut staff, it has been willing to take action against those that cut the salaries of those employees, even in the absence of a direct threat to the economy.
This year, the Government imposed a cap on salaries at a time when it was struggling to find enough workers to support its growing workforce.
The cap, which is due to be lifted in June, was imposed in a bid to force employers to pay workers on time and to make sure their contracts were not overburdened.
However, there are concerns that the Government’s cap will actually make it more difficult for companies to recruit workers, and that it will ultimately lead to more layoffs.
The Government’s own survey of 1,000 Australian employers found that of those that were prepared to pay the full cost of the medical expenses, almost half said they would do so if the employer could prove it was a genuine and imminent threat to their bottom line.
This is in contrast to recent advice that many employers are already facing the prospect of losing staff.
“It’s a huge risk to be facing a job loss, and it’s an even bigger risk to not be able to make a living for yourself,” one employee at a regional business in the Sydney suburbs told News-at-Sydney.
Aegis General Insurance, which operates as a limited liability company, is not the only insurer offering medical coverage for people who have lost their job, or who have had a direct or indirect job loss.
In a similar situation, the Australian Medical Association has recommended that those who lose their jobs or are in a position to be laid off be paid for their medical expenses.
However this is not a direct government-run option, and has only been introduced in the past year or so, with a recommendation for insurers to work with employers.
The A&P branch is the second Australian insurer to offer this option, after BHP Billiton, and the first to offer it in the region.

As a member of the A &Ps health care plan, you will be covered for your medical costs and for any losses you may incur while working at A&p.
Please read the relevant section of the agreement.”
The company has also released a video on its site in which an employee explains the offer.
“Aegises medical expenses are paid by your employer in accordance with the agreement you have with your employer,” it says.
“However, your medical expense payment will be paid by A&pps.
The amount will depend on your employer’s health plan and the medical conditions of your employer.”
An A&pmind spokeswoman said the company would not be making any public comment about its plans to cover medical bills.

He said he would consider it in detail before deciding whether to take the offer up, and said he did not believe that it would be “the last time” that he would offer the offer to employees.
Mr Evans said the offer would be a “good reminder” for all employees, especially those who might be thinking about a career change.
“They should understand that we will be offering them the opportunity to get the full medical care,” he said.
“In fact, we will cover them for a number of months in advance.”
If they’re thinking about changing jobs, they should understand the financial ramifications that would have on them.
“At the end of the day, we’re trying to get more people employed in the healthcare sector, so we’re going to do that as best we can.”
“A few months ago we were doing it and we’re not doing it anymore.”
