Hong Kong, 17 February 2020 – APRIL International Care has announced significant improvements to its onshore MyHEALTH Hong Kong private international health insurance policy range. The changes will apply to all the policies APRIL International Care offers, including individual, family and small to medium enterprise cover, with enhancements having taken effect immediately. 

The Out of area cover limit has been doubled to USD 100,000 and at the same time, a raft of new areas of medical treatment have been added across selected plans.

These include cutting edge technologies such as stem cell treatment on Extensive and Elite Hospital and Surgery plans, whilst hormone replacement, psychologist costs, check-ups and vaccinations are now covered across more plan levels. 

In an innovative move designed to help contain costs and offset the effects of medical price inflation, Hong Kong residents can additionally chose to opt for inpatient treatment to be delivered exclusively via a “specified providers” network, triggering a premium reduction versus full network cover.

APRIL International Care is unique in offering choice in how care is delivered,  so empowering clients to contain costs and ultimately keep premiums down.

Commenting on the changes, Customer Journey and Digital Marketing Manager, Kylee Lancsar said, “Keeping access to private international healthcare affordable is more important than ever. These new international and local private health insurance enhancements for 2020 continue our long track record of innovation and a focus on the needs of our clients. Premium rate changes have been kept to a minimum for our entry level products, whilst at the same time, a substantial range of policy enhancements has been rolled out, delivering significant added value to our customers. We have not lost sight of the importance of cost, either, with lower premium rates available through our specified providers feature.”

In a further enhancement of policy cover, April International Care has announced the launch of a new TeleHEALTH service via their popular app for Hong Kong based clients. 

Through a partnership with Teladoc Health, policyholders can now request a phone consultation with a qualified medical practitioner via the APRIL Easy Claim app, whether it is for a simple consultation or to request a second medical opinion.

The new teleconsultation service means policyholders do not have to leave their home or workplace to “see” a doctor, with the consultation happening directly over the phone.

April International Care recently announced it had opened up its TeleHEALTH service to all individual and group clients across its Asian region to provide support for clients during the current Coronavirus outbreak.

APRIL International Care are specialists in designing and delivering flexible international private health insurance solutions for individuals, families and companies. For more information on TeleHEALTH, contact APRIL International Care in Hong Kong, or visit www.april-international.com.
