AIG Life has launched a next day private prescription delivery service for its protection insurance policyholders, helping new and existing customers get vital medical supplies delivered straight to their door.

The free delivery service expands the Smart Health proposition, which provides six interconnected health and wellbeing virtual solutions.

These are available to all of AIG Life’s customers and members of employer-provided benefit schemes, without restriction and at no extra cost.

Through the Smart Health App, customers insured by AIG Life can already access unlimited 30-minute phone or video calls with a UK registered GP.

If they then choose, a private prescription prescribed by the virtual GP can be delivered the same or next day, to an address of their choice (dependent on their location) free of charge, only paying the cost of the medicine.

Sue Helmont, marketing director at AIG Life, said: “I hope this enhancement to our Smart Health service is welcomed by advisers and customers alike – at a time when its benefits should be clear.

“The industry is working hard to do the right thing. We hope this small innovation proves invaluable for our customers, while helping support social distancing, as medicines are delivered direct to the door.”
