12.4.3 Health Plans

Last updated on:

Stanford offers an international health (medical and dental) plan to employees and affiliated employees working outside of the US. In specific countries, a health plan that aligns with that country’s social insurance may be offered instead. In many countries the benefit insurance premiums paid by Stanford on the affiliated employee’s behalf (including contribution toward family premiums) are considered taxable income to the employee. More information is available from Global HR Programs.

Last updated on:

Global HR Programs is the responsible party to initiate employee benefits for Stanford and its affiliates in locations outside of the US. Global HR Programs will also typically administer these benefits, unless explicitly delegated to management in a specific country. Employee benefit plans outside of the US may be taxable to the employee, depending on each country’s tax code and reporting regulations. The sections below outline employee benefit provisions as they apply to Stanford University’s global staff or affiliated groupings.

  • In-Country Hires
    Contact Global HR Programs if benefit plans are not already available in the country where Stanford or an affiliate will have in-country hires.
  • US Hires
    Benefits provided to US-based employees working outside of the US will generally reflect, as closely as possible, those provided to University staff residing in the United States.
