Sagicor sees increase in number of doctors covered to offer telemedicine claims

Sagicor now covers 60 doctors in the Eastern Caribbean and Belize for telemedicine claims since it began offering this extended coverage to clients in mid-April. This means that Sagicor customers have increased options if they need to see a doctor but prefer to do so virtually.

Telemedicine, which offers doctors an opportunity to meet with patients via secure online platforms, also means they can provide electronic prescriptions.

Additionally, clients can feel secure that payment for service and completion of online claim forms can all be done electronically. Submission of claims is also done via email with payment of the claimed amount deposited to the client’s bank account electronically. This means that the entire process – save for picking up prescriptions- is all done without face-to-face contact and without the risk of covid-19 transmission.

Sagicor customers in the Eastern Caribbean and Belize can visit to see the list of doctors covered and then contact the doctor to make an appointment and confirm that their issue can be managed via telemedicine.
