WARNING/CAVEAT to all re. PANTAENIUS CREW INSURANCE
This very month my crew health insurance
which cost 1000€ in 2012,
1200€ in 2013 w as upped without notice by €300 last year May.
For 2014 the policy costs €1800!!!!!!!!!
What is more is that when I complained about the absurt increases I was told there was a MISTAKE in that only if the vessel you own is insured through PANTAENIUS may crew opt for health insurance
as an optional benefit (??)
As a result PANTAENIUS Hamburg informed me that in the event of hopitalization it would have been unsure if I were insured as the basic condition was not met in the first place.
PANTAENIUS UK states I do not have to have the yacht insured to get the health care
PANTAENIUS GER & Holland
state it IS a condition . I rest my case Philip
