HKBN and Bowtie Collaborate to Launch an Exclusive Four-In-One Healthcare Service Plan

Enhancing the Healthcare Industry to Advance Public Well-being

HONG KONG, June 27, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Hong Kong Broadband Network Limited (HKBN) and Bowtie Life Insurance Company (Bowtie)[1], Hong Kong’s first virtual insurer, have teamed up to launch an exclusive Four-In-One Healthcare Service Plan. For a monthly fee of just $99, HKBN customers can now comprehensively safeguard their health with unlimited western medicine virtual consultations (with door-to-door medicine delivery included), an annual health check-up, an annual influenza vaccination, and twice-a-year dental cleaning service.

According to a survey conducted by the Census and Statistics Department, more than half of Hong Kong residents (about 3,500,000 people) lacked access to employer/company provided healthcare benefits[2]. Whenever this group requires medical care, they often face lengthy wait times and relatively high costs for outpatient services. With this pain-point in mind, HKBN and Bowtie have introduced a new Four-In-One Healthcare Service Plan, allowing customers to enjoy comprehensive medical protection (with a value exceeding $3,500) at an incredible price. Package includes:

1.  Unlimited western medicine virtual consultations

Consultations provided by professional doctors within Bowtie’s medical network Includes two-day prescription medication, delivered to the customer’s doorstep as fast as within four hours Unlimited consultations per month

2.  Health check-up

Well-rounded programme includes blood lipid analysis, liver and kidney function tests, and diabetes examinations, etc.

3.  Dental services

Twice-a-year dental check-ups and cleaning services[3] Up to $2,000 discounts on other cosmetic dental treatments, such as clear braces or porcelain dental veneers[4]

4.  Influenza vaccination

William Yeung, HKBN Co-Owner, Executive Vice-chairman & Group Chief Executive Officer said, "Ever since the pandemic, Hongkongers have significantly increased their awareness and demands on healthcare. This pioneering cross-industry collaboration with Bowtie innovatively delivers a full range of healthcare services, further expanding HKBN’s Infinite-play strategy to include healthcare offerings. With the support of a strong network of diverse business partners, our goal is to cater to everyone’s needs at home and provide customers with more choices of the most desirable and convenient services."
