Legal Alert – COVID health insurance

#LegalAlert │ End of Health Alert in Chile:

As of August 31, 2023, the health alert that authorities had declared in response to the pandemic came to an end in Chile. This means that it is no longer necessary to obtain mandatory individual health insurance associated with COVID-19 for future employment contracts. Therefore, this insurance will no longer apply to new employee hires in Chile.

Companies with insurance policies that have expiration dates after the end of the health alert will not be obligated to renew these policies for their employees. According to the legal provision, the employer’s responsibility to provide this insurance extends only until the date of the termination of the health alert, which was declared due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
