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.

Has Covid-19 prompted the Belt and Road Initiative to go green?
– Covid-19 led to a slowdown in BRI projects
– Chinese overseas investment dropped off in 2020
– Government remains committed to the wide-ranging infrastructure programme
– Sustainability, health and digital to be the new cornerstones of the initiative

Following a year of coronavirus-related disruptions, China appears to be placing a greater focus on sustainable, digital and health-related projects in its flagship Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).

As OBG outlined in April last year, the onset of Covid-19 prompted questions about the future direction of the BRI.

Launched in 2013, the BRI is an ambitious international initiative that aims to revive ancient Silk Road trade routes through large-scale infrastructure development.

By the start of 2020 some 2951 BRI-linked projects – valued at a total of $3.9trn – were planned or under way across the world.

However, as borders closed and lockdowns were imposed, progress stalled on a number of major BRI infrastructure developments.

In June China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced that 30-40% of BRI projects had been affected by the virus, while a further 20% had been “seriously affected”. Restrictions on the flow of Chinese workers and construction supplies were cited as factors behind project suspensions or slowdowns in Pakistan, Cambodia and Indonesia, among other countries.
