They key benefits of DigiCare+
All in one app
The services provided within DigiCare+ are all accessible via app providing a consistent and familiar journey for clients regardless of the service being accessed.
All services are interlinked and are capable of referring or signposting the client to the other services available within the app where this may benefit the client.
DigiCare+ is available to clients from the first day their policy is put in force and all services (except physiotherapy which requires an income protection claim) can be accessed at any point during the term of the plan
Aviva will contact clients regularly to remind them that DigiCare+ is available to them and the services it provides.
“The most impressive aspect of DigiCare+ is that Aviva have been able to bring together a wide range of both preventative and curative services from different suppliers into one app. Each service is interlinked so that referrals from one to another is frictionless and as such should provide a more seamless experience. By doing this the end consumer should hopefully be more aware of the range of benefits they have access to which can only mean more of the services will be used.”

The areas we would like to see Aviva improve
- Access to GP’s is limited to 3 sessions per annum and costs £34 per annum whereas other insurers offer this free of charge, some with unlimited use.
- Physiotherapy is only offered where the client has Income Protection+
- We would like to see other services such as Global Treatment integrated into the app for customers that have this added to their plan
