Sagicor Life’s Hospital Showcase & Information Seminar: Fea. Patricia Brathwaite-Marshall, V.P. of Group Insurance

I thank you for joining us for the second Hospital Showcase and Information Seminar of Sagicor Life Inc. As a provider of life and health insurance to employees of large and micro organisations across the region, we conceptualised this event to share vital information with stakeholders such as yourselves.

"As a regional company established here in Barbados over 170 years ago Sagicor Life Inc has contributed to the changing landscape of health and wellness. We are committed to developments which enhance the long-term quality of life in communities in which we operate and we show that through events such as this."

We are also committed to providing excellent products and services to our customers. Our goal is to be the Group Life and Health benefits provider of choice not only in Barbados, but across the region. We have worked to offer competitive rates even under challenging economic conditions and we continue to introduce products to meet the needs of our customers. In 2013 we launched the Global Health Care series - flexible health insurance policies that allow our clients to receive medical treatment in the country of their choice.

Our Group Life and Health Insurance department has also remained on the cutting edge of technology with our instant claims settlement system and our online administrators portal. Soon, we will also be distributing our new CariCARE customer cards which will make overseas care more affordable and accessible. Today's event therefore, is another innovative step, of which we are extremely proud.

Affordable healthcare is in focus at the moment as the United States works to implement Obamacare or the Affordable Care Act. We here in the region have always had affordable, quality, national health care systems. Our neighbours in Central and South America have established themselves as dependable sources of knowledge and expertise and you will meet representatives from some of their facilities here today.

We should therefore be taking full advantage of these resources.

"...By hosting these visiting hospitals our aim is to empower you, our clients and plan administrators with the best options in medical care. The health facilities present here today provide affordable, first-class medical care. The only thing which differentiates them from some of the well-known facilities in the United States or Europe is their address."

The only thing which differentiates them from some of the well-known facilities in the United States or Europe is their address.

Barbadian medical facilities such as the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and government-run polyclinics have been providing medical care for almost five decades and the government has worked hard to ensure that these facilities are on-par with those in developed countries. However, we understand that cases will arise that require consultation and even treatment from practitioners outside of Barbados.

If we commit to providing the best care for our clients then we must also empower you with the freedom of choice. Our clients think outside of their respective borders and can easily investigate new treatments, new facilities and specialists. For a multi-national organisation, such as Sagicor Life Inc, to keep pace with the globalisation of the healthcare industry, we must tailor our solutions to meet the changing needs of the market.

Based on feedback from the medical community we have invited speakers to address topics such as cancer care, chronic diseases and stress management. I hope you will take full advantage of the information being shared today as we work to strengthen our partnership to the benefit of our clients.
