With some of the offerings covering physiotherapy, GP visits and acupuncture, these new offerings show a shift in focus to preventative medicine and early detection. According to John Meyer, clinical director of Sovereign, as costs of treatment at hospitals have risen, insurers have realised the potential for significant cost savings before conditions progress or injuries occur.
