A unique approach

Inspiration for workplace wellbeing

Whether they’re working, travelling, or retiring overseas, each of your clients is on a different adventure. But the one thing they all have in common is the need to look after their health. And they need to know they have reliable, easy access to healthcare support and treatment when they have a concern.

At AXA – Global Healthcare, we’re the experts when it comes to supporting a global customer base, and our primary focus is on what’s important to them, not us. That’s why we’ve adopted a unique approach to customer care and client services.

We have an in-house team of highly trained Personal Advisors. There are Case Managers ready to give one-on-one support for complex conditions. Our teams are encouraged and empowered to perform acts of kindness to our customers. Everything we do is designed to help our customers – your clients – get the support they need when they need it.

A personal approach for you

Consistent. It’s probably not the first word that springs to mind when you think about your globally-minded clients. They’re often extraordinary people living extraordinary lives, but when it comes to healthcare, consistency is what they need. And we know it’s what you need to offer them the best possible service. 

We pride ourselves on providing you and your clients a service that’s… 

  • Consistently fair, with claims being paid out, on average, within two days1.
  • Consistently reliable, with expert Personal Advisors who receive intensive ongoing training, within a department boasting decades of experience2 in delivering healthcare services throughout the world.
  • Consistently attentive, with a hands-on team available to call 24/73, based in-house at our centre of excellence.
  • Consistently personal, with dedicated case management to support clients with complex conditions.

The personal touch

A business is only as good as its people, so we only hire the best to delivery our award-winning4 customer service. Each of our Personal Advisors is hand-picked based on compassion, empathy, and experience. Our ‘Discovery’ training programme doesn’t just teach them about our plans; they learn about medical conditions, common treatments, and healthcare systems around the world.

We encourage Advisors to develop new skills, and give them resources and training to broaden their knowledge. From mental health training to help our teams better support customers with psychiatric illnesses, to partnering with the Samaritans so they’re equipped to assist customers in crisis.

Going the extra (s)mile

Our people are encoraged and empowered to go the extra mile. Our SMILE fund enables them to send small gifts to our customers, when they feel it’s appropriate. Gifts must be meaningful, so this initiative encourages our people to engage and develop personal connections. In some instances, advisors have become friends with members and have even been invited to weddings and birthday parties. 

We’ve sent spa vouchers to members who’ve endured stressful periods of treatment. We’ve had flowers delivered to family members of people undergoing surgery. And we’ve even sent a teddy bear, dressed as a doctor, to help a young child overcome their fear of doctors before starting chemotherapy.

As one customer stated, these small acts of kindness ‘make such a difference during a worrying time’.

In-house excellence

Our unique approach to customer care extends beyond our people. We’ve also consolidated our contact centre into one in-house hub: our centre of excellence. This means, no matter when your clients call or where they’re calling from, they’ll speak to the same department.

 And because they’re all under one roof, different departments can liaise quickly and directly between one another, meaning we can make decision more quickly, and you and your clients experience a more seamless service.


  • When you work with us, we’ll make sure to put you in touch with a dedicated point of contact who can support you through quoting, renewals, and beyond. So, if you’d like a hand making sure your clients’ plans meet their requirements, want someone to quickly check cover for a specific condition, or need more options to help you balance your client’s budget with their needs - our experienced team will be there to help.

  • This website is filled with useful resources which you can share with your clients. Start with our Share and Learn page to learn about our global health plans for individuals and corporate, specific cover for your clients in the Channel Islands, or Hong Kong, and information about additional services to support your clients – like Virtual Doctor.

  • We’ll assign an Account Manager to support your corporate clients, who can help you to share important updates with them and their employees. The Account Manager can be as hands-on as you or your client need them to be, so you’ll know there’s always someone who knows their plan, ready to lend a hand.

We work hard to make your life easier and help you build secure relationships that last. We listen carefully, we work fast, and we’ll get back to you when we promise. Whatever the question, whatever the requirement, we’ll be with you all the way. We have the local knowledge and global might to support you, whenever and wherever you need us.
