HCM CITY — AIA on July 16 launched its Personal Medical Case Management Service (Song Hành Y Tế) in Việt Nam along with global healthcare services provider Medix Group to support customers suffering from cancer and other serious illnesses.
When diagnosed with a serious or complex condition, AIA customers will be supported by a dedicated Medix case team, which will provide consultations with doctors, nurses, co-ordinators, and medical interpreters from diagnosis to treatment until full recovery.
