Risk Advice


Centrepoint Alliance and medical services provider Health Predictions have joined forces to launch Centrepoint Healthscreen, a new initiative that will improve the underwriting process for clients and advisers.

Centrepoint Healthscreen will offer home or workplace visits for pathology, paramedical and medical examinations for life insurance purposes in all urban and most rural services.

The new initiative is exclusive to Centrepoint Alliance advisers and licensees, and will be rolled out to the Centrepoint community at the company’s Risk Roadshow event in November.

The life insurance medical services include a full range of pathology, medical and paramedical services including specialist medical, general practitioner medical, paramedical, quick check assessments, electrocardiograms, stress tests, echocardiograms, blood pressure monitoring, lung function tests and Holter monitoring.

According to David Spiteri, Life Insurance Specialist at Centrepoint Alliance, the new initiative will enable advisers to order, track and monitor pathology requests.

“Advisers will have a dedicated resource and telephone line to enable them to make contact and arrange any pathology requests,” said David.

“As the service is mobile and operates in all capital cities and most rural locations, clients have the option of having any pathology testing for insurance purposes in the comfort of their home, work or any desired location.

“The new service supports advisers in their role of providing properly underwritten insurance in their clients’ interest, while making the whole process more timely and efficient for both parties.
“When it comes to life insurance, Centrepoint believes there is no substitute for good advice so people can receive the cover that will meet their expectations in the event of a claim.”
