First-in-HK to offer value-added services: cosmetic treatments, fertility solution, refractive surgery and maternity care
HONG KONG, CHINA – Media
OutReach – 5 October 2020 – Women of today have many wishes, they
may want to build a thriving career, pursue their dreams, and have a joyful
family life all at the same time. It is thus very important for women to take
good care of their health. Yet according to the “AXA Wellness Index” 2020, while 94% of the female respondents claimed that they are concerned
about their health, only around half of them (56%) have done body check-ups in the
past two years, showing that women may neglect their health as they are too
busy with handling the different roles in life.
AXA Hong Kong launches the “Pink Medical Insurance Plan”, a holistic solution that brings women’s needs into focus, providing multidimensional protection from young adulthood to menopause. By partnering with a group of high-quality network service providers, the plan lets our customers have access to a full suite of value-added services, including the first-in-market offer of cosmetic treatments, refractive surgery and fertility solution, as well as maternity care.
Hong Kong launches the “Pink Medical Insurance Plan”, a holistic solution that
brings women’s needs into focus, providing multidimensional protection from
young adulthood to menopause. Apart from the medical protection needs, we
understand that women also wish to present the best of themselves at all times.
Therefore, we are partnering with a group of high-quality network service
providers to let our customers have access to a full suite of value-added

Dr Koh Yi Mien, Managing Director of Health
and Employee Benefits of AXA Hong Kong and Macau, said, “Today’s
modern women are strong, independent and have many wishes. We are always
striving to be the best versions of ourselves as we go through life, from
adolescent to adulthood to menopause. At each stage, women have different
needs, such as gynaecological issues, beauty concerns, fertility worries and mental health needs. Given this, the AXA health team
spent time listening to women sharing their experiences about what truly
matters. We observed how women lead their lives in real life. We consulted
obstetricians and gynaecologists. The result is the ‘Pink Medical Insurance
Plan’. A holistic solution for women’s needs during the different ages, with
top-quality network providers, so that women can be free to live the life they
love. We are delighted our brand ambassador, Ms Sammi Cheng, has taken the
lead to become the first customer of ‘Pink Medical Insurance Plan’. “
