Cover-More Launches Pre-Travel GP Consultations For Overseas Travellers

June 28, 2017 Insurance No Comments Email Email

Cover-More, Australia’s leading travel insurance and medical assistance provider, today announced the launch of Pre-Travel GP consultations for customers, provided under their travel insurance policy.

Australian travellers who buy a Cover-More policy can access a telephone consultation with a qualified Australian doctor who specialises in travel medicine before they head overseas.

Cover-More’s Pre-Travel GP consultations expand on the company’s industry-first Travel GP service, launched in 2015, providing travellers with access to an Australian doctor via telephone or video 24 hours a day, seven days a week and no matter where they are in the world.

The Pre-Travel GP will undertake a full medical assessment, covering medical history, travel plans, destinations and timing, and advise a complete plan of care, including recommended immunisations and vaccines, and travel medical kit essentials. The doctor will issue any prescriptions the traveller needs ahead of their holiday and refer the customer to their regular GP if they need to visit them before they travel. After the consultation, the customer is emailed a comprehensive summary of their consultation, including emergency contact details for when they are overseas.

Cover-More Group Chief Executive Officer – Global Medical Assistance, Meredith Staib said: “We are thrilled to be the first insurance and assistance company in Australia to launch a Pre-Travel GP consultation service to our customers, as it allows our customers to prepare for their best holiday possible.

“We are firmly committed to helping Australian travellers keep travelling, and our Pre-Travel GP consults are another example of this focus.”

Cover-More Group Global Commercial General Manager – Financial Institutions, Richard Austin said: “This is a great tool to help busy people prepare for travel and the feedback we have received from customers so far is overwhelmingly positive.”

Cover-More’s Pre-Travel GP consultations are in market now. Customers are offered a Pre-Travel GP consult when they buy their policy, and an appointment is scheduled with the Travel GP.
