Best Doctors

In October 2015 we bought you the news that CGU had partnered with Best Doctors, a company who offer remote access to the top 3% – 5% of medical specialists in the world. Best Doctors use a current diagnosis (from a GP or Specialist) to access international experts who offer second opinions, treatment plans and much more. Individuals can access this service from the comfort of their homes, saving costly travel time and removing the stress caused by long medical specialist waiting lists.

CGU initially provided complimentary memberships to our Authorised Representative (AR) network so that they could trial the offering and let us know what we could change or improve, we also ensured that our staff members had access to this great service. Our AR’s are now in the process of giving their Countrypak policy holders their own Best Doctors memberships.
We’re now ready to continue rolling out Best Doctors service out across our Broker network and their Countrypak policy holders. An official launch breakfast was held in Brisbane on the 18th February with the Council of Queensland Insurance Brokers (CQIB).  Keep an eye out for highlights from this launch in Insurance news, ABC radio and our social media pages.
The official launch means that all of our Brokers will have received their own complimentary Best Doctors membership that will also cover their immediate family members. Emails were sent Tuesday 23 February, welcoming our Brokers to their Best Doctors membership.
CGU are very proud to continue rolling out this exciting initiative, and to be providing our policy holders with a simple and supportive addition to their current health care team to help them to See It Through. 

We will be discussing the Best Doctors offering with you, particularly those with rural customers, over the coming weeks. If you have any questions regarding the next steps please contact your Business Relationship Manager.
