APRIL International Care Expands Asian Outpatient Direct Billing Network

APRIL International Care has announced significant enhancements to its outpatient direct billing network in Vietnam and Indonesia for clients of its Asian subsidiaries.

Direct billing allows eligible clients to show an eCard on the APRIL Easy Claim app or a traditional international membership card to a clinic. All bills are then settled directly by APRIL International Care with the clinic, so clients do not need to worry about reimbursement of fees, sending in claims, or other paperwork.

Regional CEO of Asia, Romain DiMeglio explains, “Our clients regularly tell us that collecting invoices for treatment costs and submitting claims for reimbursement can be both a drain on immediate financial resources and stressful, particularly at a time of ill health or during recovery. By adding two new hospital groups to our direct billing scheme, clients in Indonesia and Vietnam will now see a significant simplification of the process for accessing private medical care. Facilities can be located through our Easy Claim app and can use their eCard to identify themselves. This makes seeking and receiving treatment quicker and easier.”

APRIL International Care’s outpatient direct billing network is available as part of all of their international private medical insurance policies bought via subsidiaries in the Asian region, which covers over 15,000 members through individual & family plans, small company schemes and larger corporate solutions.

The new additions to the network include the 4 hospitals within the Kasih Ibu group in Indonesia, all of which are accredited by Indonesia’s national KARS scheme and host fully equipped laboratories and advanced diagnostic equipment to carry out any medical tests on site. In Vietnam, Vinmec, officially known as Vinmec Healthcare System, includes seven hospitals with modern, state of the art facilities. The group will add two further clinics within the next three years.
