Customers of New Zealand’s largest locally owned life insurer, Fidelity Life, can now access its new evidenced-based holistic cancer support, Cancer companion.  

First unveiled in late-July at Fidelity Life’s Engage 2022 adviser conference, Cancer companion is delivered by digital oncology experts CancerAid and leading global telehealth specialists Teladoc Health. This is the first time their combined services will be deployed in New Zealand, following successful collaborations with insurers in Australia.

Cancer companion is designed to complement existing treatment plans and consists of three main components: Cancer Coach, a personalised care programme including an app to help track, manage and improve symptoms; Second Medical Opinion, providing access to a network of world-leading cancer specialists; and Mental Health Support, for one-on-one therapy sessions.

All components of Cancer companion are optional and available to eligible Fidelity Life trauma cover customers* with a cancer diagnosis. There is no additional cost to customers to participate in Cancer companion.
