MetLife adds Fitness and Recovery to 360Health digital offering
Sydney September 15, 2022
MetLife Australia announces the expansion of its award-winning 360Health Virtual Care with the addition of Fitness and Recovery to its digital offering, which will address one of the leading causes of reduced mobility, lower levels of well-being and reduced ability to properly participate in society or work.
Over one third of all of MetLife’s Total Permanent Disability (TPD) claims are due to musculoskeletal related conditions, such as back injuries and repetitive strain injuries. Exercise can be effectively used to delay, prevent or alleviate symptoms due to musculoskeletal conditions by designing an exercise program targeted to that individual’s fitness and health needs. Today’s announcement to add Fitness and Recovery will significantly bolster the existing offering by addressing these conditions through access to Exercise Physiologists for personalised programs.
Speaking about the impact this new service will have on MetLife’s customers, Lina Saliba, Chief Customer and Marketing Officer said: “Adding Fitness and Recovery to our solutions suite means we can help more customers access the expert advice and support they need to get back to being active and healthy sooner, while at the same time preventing future illness at no additional cost to them.
“MetLife genuinely thinks about what the customer needs from the customer’s perspective and that is a truly exciting approach, especially with regard 360Health Virtual Care.”
The full suite of 360Health services is available to eligible customers and their families, and all MetLife Australia employees, at no additional cost as part of their life insurance policy and includes the 360Health Virtual Care app for quick and easy access anywhere. Customers do not need to make a claim to access the service, which is all about providing the tools for enabling one to actively managing one’s health for a more confident future.
