The Hong Kong division of global re/insurer AXA has launched a new program designed to provide mitigation and treatment services for chronic diseases.
‘AXA Chronic Disease Management Programme’ collaborates with CUHK Medical Clinic, Hong Kong Diabetes Specialist Centre, HKSH Medical Group and Virtus Medical Group.
A registered medical practitioner will be assigned to support each participant throughout the entire program journey and will conduct an initial medical consultation, as well as follow-up appointments.
A personal health target will be set according to the condition of each individual, including ECG, blood test for blood pressure and/or HbA1c, for a more effective health management routine.
For those who successfully reach their goal, a 10% premium discount will be given against their eligible basic plan.
Meanwhile, the programme offers an option of medication from a pre-agreed list or alternative medication at a special discount. It covers up to 52 weeks of treatment/dosage.
“The demand for insurance for chronic diseases cannot be ignored. AXA Hong Kong has reformed its core concept of insurance and expanded the coverage of its products to cope with changes in society since 2018, helping customers improve their health,” said Dr. Alexander Chiu, Medical Director, Health and Employee Benefits, AXA Hong Kong and Macau.
“The collaboration with CUHK Medical Clinic, Hong Kong Diabetes Specialist Centre, HKSH Medical Group and Virtus Medical Group aims at helping chronic disease patients in a more effective way, with proper consultation and solutions provided by professional medical organisations.
“We are looking forward to working with more of these reputable medical institutions, and to providing more personalized and flexible plans and products, to overcome the challenges of the market and to help our customers prepare a healthy body and mind to embrace the future.”
