What key services are available?
Health Check is a major benefit of Aviva DigiCare+ Workplace. It's easy to take and it can help beat health worries as well as spotting problems before they become more serious. Employees can take one annual health assessment through a pin-prick blood test. It’s a simple self-administered finger prick test they can take in the comfort of their own home. This quick test checks 20 different health markers to spot problems early on. It covers issues like the risk of diabetes, cholesterol status and liver health.
They then receive a personalised health report and recommended course of action. If needed, they can then book a consultation with a Digital GP to discuss the results. By taking this simple test once a year, your they can keep on top of their health, detect issues early and maybe help prevent certain health problems.
The Health Check is available to employees insured under a Group Income Protection or Group Critical Illness policy.

It’s not always easy or convenient to get to the doctors’ surgery. Digital GP offers a video appointment with a doctor without having to wait for a face-to-face appointment. It could mean an appointment in hours rather than days - and employees can use the service 8am - 8pm, 7 days a week.
Designed to complement existing NHS treatment, the Digital GP is a private doctor service offering your employees and their immediate families access to clinical advice and guidance in non-emergency situations. It offers the peace of mind of being able to speak to a doctor quickly.
An employee can use the service to arrange up to three sessions in any policy year, which they can share with their immediate family.
A video appointment could lead to a prescription, a fit note, recommendation or referral for specialist treatment. For follow-up appointments, there's the option to select the same GP from the original appointment. There's no extra cost for the appointment, but prescriptions, fit notes and referrals will incur a cost.

Quick and easy to use - with fast access to medical advice
Wide selection of GPs available – the employee can choose by medical specialism
Ability to view GP biographies before booking a consultation
The GP has access to other medical professionals with complementary specialisms
Second Medical Opinion
A medical diagnosis can come as a shock. It’s easy to forget to ask important questions, and people might be left wondering whether other medical professionals might come to different conclusions.
The Second Medical Opinion service offers employees and their immediate families the support they need in situations like these. Employees have access to two second medical opinions each policy year, which can be shared with their immediate families.
It offers access to a network of UK-based clinicians, covering all physical and mental health conditions.
After answering questions in-app, the patient is matched to the most suitable UK-based specialist to give their medical opinion. All are experts in their fields and can bring fresh insight to bear on a diagnosis.
It’s not about distrust. Consulting another professional gives the employee that chance to digest their diagnosis, ask questions and more fully understand their illness, helping them to embrace their chosen treatment pathway.
Please note that Square Health cover the costs for the consultation and the report only. The patient must cover any travel costs and costs for any treatment they decide to go ahead with following the second medical opinion, as these are not part of the service.

The employee could benefit from new information, an alternative diagnosis or recommended treatment plan
The service covers all conditions, including mental health
Mental Health Consultation
More and more people now recognise that looking after mental health is just as important as taking care of our physical condition. This is true within the workplace as much as any other walk of life. Mental and physical health can be closely linked so looking after one can have a positive impact on the other.
This completely confidential, support service offers quick access to tailored mental health advice from qualified therapists.
It can bring help with workplace stress, money worries, family conflict, divorce and other big changes in life.
It can also help with a variety of other issues, including events related to family history, post-partum depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. In addition the insured life and eligible family members also have access to an additional six sessions for bereavement for family members.
Your employees are entitled to six sessions a year, and these can be shared between the employee and their immediate family. Appointments are available 8am - 7pm Monday to Friday, and 9am - 1pm on Saturdays. The Mental Health Consultation, which includes the bereavement service, is available to employees insured under Group Critical Illness or Group Income Protection, their spouse or partner and children from age 16 up to age 18, or 21 if in full time education.
