Together, the two companies have already developed products in recent years such as a global health insurance plan with unlimited duration. This can be signed exclusively through under the brand COVRD.EE, even as a corporate framework contract for micro-groups from one person onwards. This is particularly interesting for the more than 100,000 e-Residents who have acquired a digital ID in Estonia, allowing one to register a company in the small Baltic country in just about 15 minutes.
