The challenges your clients face and how Irish Life can help

According to a recent survey, 1 in 3 Irish people postponed visiting their healthcare provider during the Coronavirus pandemic.* Some parents even said they had postponed childhood vaccinations and pre- and postnatal check-ups, with some also stopping fertility treatment.

There are ways we can help your clients deal with the challenges they face at this time.

LifeCare is available across the entire range of Irish Life protection products. LifeCare can be of real benefit to clients who don't want to visit the G.P. It offers three valuable services to your clients;

  • MedCare – a medical second opinion service
  • NurseCare – confidential medical helpline services
  • ClaimsCare – a dedicated claims assessor, and access to post-claim counselling services

We’ve got a new client flyer that explains the benefits of LifeCare. You can use this to remind your clients about how LifeCare can help make life easier for them. We’ve added this flyer to our 2020 claims page. While you’re there, check out the wide range of unbranded and digital material for you to use in your client conversations.

The findings are part of a population-wide survey conducted by research teams at NUI Galway, Dublin City University (DCU) and the SFI Insight Centre for Data Analytics to study the impact of restrictive measures on daily life. The postponed treatment included GP consultations (48pc), hospital medical examinations (14pc) and operations (6pc), April-June 2020.
