Health insurance

Global healthcare provider MEDIGO, which works to improve access to healthcare, has announced the UK launch of two products: GLOBALCOVER and GLOBALCARE.

GLOBALCOVER is a treatment-based insurance for major illness that offers cancer treatment, heart surgery, neurosurgery and live-organ transplants. It provides treatment-based cover rather than a lump-sum payout.

GLOBALCARE is a health services subscription for second medical opinions and medical concierge. It is designed to meet the needs of patients who self-pay for treatment and provides personal support and logistics for medical treatment booking in 35 countries.

“We’re thrilled to be able to open up our services to a new market and hope to help more people gain peace of mind that they’ll get the right medical treatment when they need it” ​said Ugur Samut, Medigo CEO.​

“These products are great for employers who are looking for smart ways to make their health benefits relevant,” said Bruce Eaton, Medigo Managing Director, UK.
