Hong Kong - FTLife Insurance Company Limited (“FTLife”) is delighted to announce its strategic partnership with Gleneagles Hospital Hong Kong (“Gleneagles”), a joint venture between IHH Healthcare and NWS Holdings Limited. Leveraging the unique business ecosystem of New World Group, the two parties are launching an “Insurance + Medical Care” model that is designed to explore and create synergy by developing in-depth and long-term cooperation in customer experience, product development as well as health management services. Inspired by the Group’s artisanal movement, they set to craft a unique medical insurance experience for our customers.
The collaboration will kick off by launching various one-stop support and in-patient value-added services, and other promotions on the e-Connect Health Platform on the “Reach FTLife” mobile app, so as to provide comprehensive service, both online and offline, to cater for FTLife customers.
The three major customer privileges include:
- Ward upgrade: During the promotion period*, insureds who have a medical reimbursement plan and need to be admitted to Gleneagles will receive the relaxation of claim limitation (from semi-private double room to semi-private single room) without affecting their claim. The upgrade will offer more space, comfort and privacy to ensure a restful stay for the patients.
- Cashless arrangement service: All medical reimbursement plans are eligible for cashless arrangement service. Customers can have a hassle-free treatment as FTLife will settle the pre-approved bill directly with Gleneagles upon discharge.
- e-Connect Health Platform on the “Reach FTLife” mobile app: The “Reach FTLife” mobile app enables customers to browse information on network medical institutions and doctors for outpatient colonoscopy and gastroscopy procedures and get an instant out-of-pocket estimation anytime and anywhere. Their agents can also book the first specialist consultation with a preferred specialist at Gleneagles. Customers can also enjoy cashless arrangement service and free VIP room upgrade privilege^.
In addition, the collaboration has extended to Continuing Professional Development training of FTLife agents. Doctors from Gleneagles regularly provide the latest information on critical illnesses and other medical topics as guest speakers in health talks to enable the agents to better support their customers.
Dr Kenneth Tsang, Chief Executive Officer of Gleneagles, said, “Gleneagles is committed to providing innovative, highly transparent and quality healthcare services that cater to the changing needs of our patients. We have been developing strategic partnerships with different industries to launch innovative healthcare solutions. Through our collaboration with the insurance industry, we strive to bring to members of the public more affordable private healthcare that comes with peace of mind and transparent fees. We are delighted to be deepening our partnership with FTLife to offer a seamless “insurance and medical care” experience which allows more personalised and convenient healthcare for patients.”
Fang Lin, Vice Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of FTLife, said, “Insurance industry and the medical sector are closely related. Cross-sector collaboration is set to be an industry trend as we enhance our insurance products and user experience with quality medical services. FTLife and Gleneagles share very compatible goals and visions, and our close teamwork in the recent year has created various special offerings including health screening package, and HPV vaccination. We look forward to taking our cooperation to the next level to offer a more diverse range of exclusive services and user experience, including expanding the specialist clinic appointment services on our mobile app Reach FTLife, and in-patient value-added services. We are excited to bring unparallel quality medical services to our customers as we continue to leverage the robust business ecosystem of New World Group.”
