The tricky thing about emergencies is that you never know when they could happen, and the costs of medical transportation and practitioners can take a huge chunk out of your business budget, which is why we give you access to emergency medical assistance for any medical situation at no extra cost.
Emergency Medical Transportation
If a medical emergency happens this Biz Assist benefit will arrange and coordinate the most appropriate method of emergency medical transportation (road or air ambulance) to the nearest medical facility capable of giving you the best care.
One call to the same number will trigger our medical professionals to guide you through a medical crisis, giving you emergency advice. This programme includes referrals to crisis lines in the case of:
- Family and domestic abuse
- Child abuse
- Suicide hotline
- Poison hotline
- Medical advice
You’ll have access to qualified professional nurses who can answer questions and enquiries about general health topics, symptoms, medicines, surgery, medical conditions, and illnesses. While this service is not diagnostic, it does give you relevant advice and information regarding your topic before you are able to get a consultation with your doctor.
You will also be referred to a doctor should the nature of the call not be classified as a home remedy case. Referrals include:
- Closest medical facilities
- GPs within your area
- Closest medical transport
- Health specialists
Available 24/7/365, Emergency Medical Assist will not only save you the cost of emergency transportation in the event of an emergency but is also very helpful when you experience a health-related issue and are not sure whether it warrants a trip to the doctor’s office.
