Phnom Penh, 09 March 2021 – AIA (Cambodia) Life Insurance Plc (“AIA Cambodia”) today entered into an exclusive partnership with leading global health management company Medix to offer individuals suspected of or diagnosed with cancer personalized support and care throughout their medical journey.
The collaboration, which optimizes health outcomes, will provide new and existing AIA customers with access to Medix’ renowned Personal Medical Case Management (PMCM) – a comprehensive service that offers tailored support from diagnosis through treatment and all the way to full recovery.
The exclusive, value-added service offered free to eligible customers ensures they feel confident about the treatment they receive, anywhere in the world. Those eligible for PMCM are appointed a dedicated Case Manager Doctor and Nurse and have access to a quality, accredited network of more than 4,000 leading global specialists and 2,000 top international hospitals, all while receiving ongoing personal guidance, support and emotional care.
With PMCM, an AIA policyholder looking to make objective choices can rely on advice from local and international specialists about the medical options available as well as receive consolidated recommendations and ongoing supervision.
Ms. Pauline Teoh, Chief Executive Officer of AIA Cambodia said: “No one should make serious and challenging decisions without the right information and knowledge, especially when faced with a potential life-threatening situation as cancer.
Via our strategic partnership with Medix and their proven outcomes, AIA Cambodia looks to alleviate our customers’ financial and emotional worries by presenting them with the best possible options at every step of their journey. This, in turn, allows them to fully concentrate on what really matters – their health and full recovery.”
“With PMCM our customers can make optimal healthcare choices that fit their requirements. With numerous benefits that continuously build and maintain customer confidence, coupled with Medix’ unparalleled case management expertise, PMCM is a major leap forward towards fulfilling AIA’s brand promise of providing everyone with healthier, longer, better lives,” she continued.
Sigal Atzmon, Medix Founder & Chief Executive Officer shared similar sentiments, saying the partnership would not only serve as a game-changer for AIA Cambodia but offer its customers a wealth of personalized, quality-driven and objective options that would help them navigate their medical journey and optimize outcomes.
“While this partnership differentiates AIA’s portfolio of customer health and wellness from other insurers, the key takeaway here is that our shared commitment, and AIA Cambodia’s vision to improve the lives of all Cambodians, will empower their customers to make informed, quality-driven decisions about their condition and make a real difference in their lives.
Today, insurance is much more than just paying claims and we are proud of the role that Medix plays in further enhancing the relationship between AIA and its customers to provide them with the confidence, clarity and control they need and help them get back to living.”
