In a bid to assist Kenyan families to access specialized medical treatment, improve general health and wellness, Resolution Insurance Group has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with leading super speciality hospitals; Max Healthcare, Apollo Group, Artemis Hospitals, Fortis Healthcare and BLK Hospital, in India. The partnership was signed in the midst of the recent increase in Kenyans travelling abroad to receive specialized treatment due to the fair cost, availability of advanced facilities and equipment and the belief in experienced and advanced medical specialists.
The partnership will provide Resolution Insurance members with direct access to an array of advanced care including cancer, organ transplants, cardiac and orthopedic treatment services. The programme supports data released by the Ministry of Health indicating a total number of 116 patients who travelled to India in search of medical treatment between January and March 2017. The report further highlighted that treatment in India had been highly rated globally to have better outcomes and be more cost friendly as compared to treatment received in Europe or America.
To mark the beginning of this partnership leading cardiologists, Bariatric and Surgical gastroenterologist, Joint Replacement and Arthroscopic surgeons from partner BLK Hospital in New Delhi, India held their first disease diagnostic camp on the 14th and 15th of July 2017 at the Sarova Panafric Hotel in Nairobi. The programme provided a platform for Resolution members to receive information and specialized consultation on diseases such as Hypertension, Cancer, and Back pain conditions in order to help improve their medical wellness.
Due to the unpredictable and unexpectedly nature of illnesses, it is important for Kenyans to embrace medical covers that will see them benefit from technologically advanced, financially friendly and well-equipped treatment services both locally and internationally. Preventive rather than reactionary measures should be adopted to ensure families maintain financial stability in the unfortunate occurrence of a long-term illness.
