Online video doctor consultations (Telehealth) are now available.
In the midst of COVID-19, we understand that it is a difficult and uncertain time for many of you. As part of our on-going commitment to you, we have taken the initiative to make seeking medical advice as easy and accessible for you as possible.
Over the last 12 months, we have been looking at supporting our policyholders with ‘Telehealth’ service (online video doctor consultations). With COVID-19 making day-to-day matters much more complicated, we have prioritised networking with doctors in this online space. We are now pleased to announce that we are providing Telehealth service with our registered doctor. This convenient Telehealth service is currently being offered to all of our International Student policyholders.
A bit about our doctor, Dr Lisa Amin:
Dr Lisa Amin is a General Practitioner trained in the United Kingdom. She qualified as a GP in 2006 and moved to NZ in 2011. In 2015, as part of a government initiative to provide e-medicals for migrants moving to and working in New Zealand, Dr Amin founded Christchurch Immigration Health and is currently a recognised panel physician for INZ.
Dr Amin is professional, efficient and has a great rapport with her patients. Determined to serve the migrant population of New Zealand, Dr Amin is excited to be able to provide these online video consultations to our customers.
At present, Dr Amin is the sole doctor we have working with us in this space. However, over the coming months, we anticipate other doctors joining us with this Telehealth service.
