Canada Life has added online access to existing second-opinion service Best Doctors which is currently provided on its group income protection and group critical illness plans.
The new online offering Ask Best Doctors also offers employees a multimedia library designed to help them understand a range of medical conditions, as well as the types of treatments available.
Dominic Howard, director of Europe for Best Doctors, said: “Utilisation of Best Doctors is as high as 10% with some of Canada Life’s clients, which, with the support of the Best Doctors account managers, communicate the benefit in a variety of ways.
“Ask Best Doctors makes it even easier for staff and their eligible dependants to access the benefit. Supporting the health of employees and their families provides a recognised contribution to workplace wellbeing and productivity.”
