Do you have high medical bills? And would you like to keep your retention fee low? Then we recommend the Multimed model.
Under the Multimed model, you contact your Multimed practice, call the telemedicine centre or use the Symptom Checker in the Well app.
Call the telemedicine centre on 058 277 77 77, where medical professionals are available to advise you round the clock. They will help you determine what treatment you need and set a time frame for it.
The Symptom Checker in the Well app gives you an initial assessment in just a few minutes. If you need to see a doctor, you can create a time frame for treatment digitally and then go to your chosen doctor’s practice. There is no need to call the telemedicine centre.
Premiums depend on where you live, your age and what deductible you choose.
Multimed gives you freedom to act. You have the opportunity to use various digital services in relation to your treatment.
You need a time frame covering the duration of your treatment. You can get one from the Multimed practice or telemedicine centre. The treatment must only be administered by the specified medical professional. Notify the Multimed practice or telemedicine centre if you get referred.
