Imagine, after a long day making big decisions for your business, you get home late and can still have that GP appointment you need. Imagine being able to book an appointment during the working day that suits your schedule, not your surgery’s. Imagine you need a prescription ahead of your business trip abroad in 48 hours.
At AXA Health we’ve imagined it all. It’s why we’ve developed our AXA Doctor at Hand service, powered by Doctor Care Anywhere.
And at the moment, If you have your GP appointment through the AXA Doctor at Hand service, we’re offering our members subsidised prescriptions, which means you’ll pay no more than the cost of a standard NHS prescription. You’ll need to pay the full prescription and delivery charge and then get reimbursed for costs above the £9.35 NHS charge. This subsidised prescription offer has now been extended until 30 June 2021.
We know how important it is for you and your people to be able to manage your health, so AXA Doctor at Hand is included regardless of the cover options that you choose. If you want the same freedom and flexibility with your face-to-face GP appointments, we’ve thought of that too – just select our Private GP option.
Once you’ve activated your AXA Doctor at Hand account you can just book an appointment online or through the app and you and your employees could be talking to a doctor within hours. You’ll have 20 minutes to chat by video or phone from wherever’s convenient for you.
You and your team can talk to a GP 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year (subject to availability). Everyone can now fit appointments around their work.
All their doctors are experienced and registered with the General Medical Council. They’ll be able to discuss any problems you or your employees have and recommend treatment. They can also arrange referrals to private specialists, and may be able to refer to diagnostic tests for some conditions.4
There’s no limit to the number of times you and your employees can use our online GP service, subject to appointment availability and the Doctor Care Anywhere fair usage policy. Your employees will love the freedom and convenience of this service. It’s been built around helping them and any members of their family they include on their policy to stay fit and well, in and outside of work.
Everything you and your team needs is in one place, from booking your appointment and seeing a GP when it suits you, to having your specialist referral sent straight to our Fast Track Appointments team (you will need to have the Outpatient Option included in your plan for the specialist consultation to be covered). And with your permission, Doctor Care Anywhere can share information with your regular GP, so they’re updated after each appointment.
Whether they’re on holiday or abroad for work, your employees can get the advice, reassurance and the medicine they need to feel better.2
Today, we need our health to fit around our busy lives, not the other way around. That’s why we’ve also made it easy for you and your employees to see a private GP in person promptly when you or one of your team members becomes ill, at a time that’s convenient for you – and your business.
