Friends Life team up with Best Doctors
18th May, 2015
As part of their Protect+ policy, leading insurance provider Friends Life have announced that customers will now have the option to access some of the best medical treatment from around the globe. Global Treatment, a policy option on all Critical Illness, Life Cover and Income Protection, sees the provider teaming up with Best Doctors, a network of medical experts, to give customers the best possible treatment as part of their policy.
Director of Sales at Friends life Mark Anders said: "Global Treatment revolutionises the protection insurance industry and is a unique optional benefit in the UK." The medical care in the UK may be advanced, but the best treatment for certain serious illnesses may be abroad. Also accessible for the policyholder’s children, Global Treatment will pay for advice, treatment and most associated costs such as hospitalisation and travel.
On the back of the recent forecast from Cancer Research UK that half of us will develop cancer at some point in our lives, innovative policy options such as Global Treatment is welcome news. By offering more than just financial cover, providers are investing in new ways to bridge the protection gap in the UK by ensuring that consumers get the most out of their policy.
