Pacific Prime clients with AXA PPP are now able to make more informed decisions about their health care as the insurer has recently added a second opinion service to its individual medical insurance plans.
Second opinion services are valuable to clients as they allow them to consult with an additional expert if they are unsure about a previous diagnosis or treatment. This added service to AXA PPP's individual plans is especially welcomed as it can be utilized by clients without an added cost.
When a client seeks a second medical opinion, AXA PPP will cover the cost of the appointment, including tests and scans. Clients who have a plan with limits for out-patient benefits, no claims discount, or a voluntary excess will not have these policies applied to their second opinion service.
Note, however, that whether or not a client with an AXA PPP plan can take advantage of the second opinion service depends on the terms and conditions of their specific plan. Exclusions for out-patient treatment, chronic conditions, and pre-existing medical conditions still apply.
Clients with an AXA PPP individual plan can use the “Fast Track Appointment Service” to find a consultant for a second medical opinion. The service gives the client access to an extensive network of healthcare specialists, and clients can use the service to easily find and book the consultant that fits their time and location needs.
With the rapid growth of demand for health insurance in recent years, the number of insurers and plans on the market has also increased dramatically. Insurance providers such as AXA PPP are realizing that going the extra mile and catering to the client is paramount in earning the client's attention and trust. Pacific Prime analysts are curious to see how AXA PPP's second opinion service will develop in the future, and whether or not it will be included in other plans.
