In Argentina, the obligatory health insurance given to workers via private businesses and organized by labor unions covers what is set by the PMO (Compulsory Medicare Program). Employers contribute 6%, while workers pay 3% on top of their basic wage.
The PMO includes maternity and child insurance, oncology, main assistance (emergencies), a dental plan, medicines, prosthesis, and rehabilitation programs.
Secondary help includes medical visits, examinations, operations, hospitalization, and treatments. Employees are also entitled to paid time off in the following situations:
10 days' leave for mariage
3 days' leave for the death of a child, parent, or spouse
1 day's leave for the death of a sibling
Although meal tickets are optional, they are a typical perk given to workers in Argentina and are completely paid for by employers on a monthly basis along with the monthly pay. The amount paid to workers varies based on their profession, although it is typically not more than one-sixth of their monthly income.
