Annual Health Check-up Packages( details attached )

NIS Raffles Medical Shanghai Rmb3,500 Health Screening Package

NIS Global Doctor Health Screening Packages

Bangkok Hospital Health Check-up Packages

Sino United Rmb3,000 Health Screening Package

Samitivej Hospital Health Check-up Packages

Dear Overseas staff,

I am pleased to be sending you details of some wellness / annual health check-up packages that One World Cover has negotiated in your area. Please note that the wellness limit on your group medical insurance plan is Rmb3,500 and each of the attached packages are around this limit. We would encourage each of your members to have a comprehensive health check-up once per policy year. A comprehensive health check-up can help find problems before they start or find problems early, when the chances for treatment and cure are better. Getting the right health services, screenings, and treatments, is a key part of taking steps that help improve the chances for living a longer, healthier life.

In order for your member to access any of these packages, they should simply call the clinic and request a copy of this specific package. We would suggest they bring a copy of the PDF (hard or soft copy) with them when they visit the clinic. If they having any problems please ask them to email – we are happy to help.

We have also included details of some packages in Bangkok, Thailand, which is a popular medical tourism destination for expats living in Asia. Please note that these are standard packages at two of Bangkok’s leading private hospitals. If any of your members are interested in booking one of these packages please email for further details.

Hope this helps. Please feel free to get in touch with us in case you have any questions.

With thanks and best wishes,
