To this end, receiving the correct diagnosis and treatment plan, as early as possible, results in fewer disability/income protection claims from prolonged recovery times. All the more reason to ensure the insured is made aware of, and encouraged to utilize, the medical second opinion service available to them.
As we progress into 2023
At our core, much like the insurance industry, MediGuide is about protecting people (the insured) and helping businesses (our insurance partners) avoid unnecessary medical expenses. On top of looming inflation, rising operating costs and slowed premium growth in the insurance industry, managing health risk becomes increasingly important.
In the last year we have had to navigate a complex and changing healthcare landscape, but this hasn’t hampered our ability to create value both for our clients and their members.
Expert MSO services along with telehealth (telemedicine), and preventative health services, all of which form part of our integrated offering, have significant health optimization and cost saving implications. Year on year, our consistently high KPIs reflect this, with major ramifications for insurers particularly when it comes to MSO related changes in treatment and the role this plays in helping to dramatically cut down on claims costs.
