Axa PPP to launch musculoskeletal health pathway

Axa PPP Healthcare is to launch a new referral approach for employees with musculoskeletal conditions.

Its Musculoskeletal Health Pathway, which will be available from 1 January 2014, aims to cut the claims’ costs of private medical insurance by ensuring employees are referred quickly to suitable providers for evidence-based care.

The referral approach includes:

  • The opportunity for self-referral without the need to visit a GP.
  • An in-house team of experts to provide advice and case management at all stages.
  • Preferred partner arrangements for physiotherapy delivery.

Jan Vickery, lead physiotherapist at Axa PPP, said: “The Musculoskeletal Health Pathway is a demonstration of our commitment to delivering sustainable cover to the corporate healthcare market and to helping employers get more from their healthcare investment.”
