Executive Health Checks & Health Insurance


Executive health checks could be a benefit in your group health insurance plan or they could be a standalone benefit that is organized independently. 

If they are apart of your health insurance benefits, talk to us, to ensure that your plan includes health check benefits for the employees your need it for and at the right benefit limitation. 

Executive Health Checks Benefit Limit
Your group health insurance benefit can include a health check benefit. You’ll want to make sure the annual limit is high enough for the residence country of your employees. In Vietnam, that might be $500/year where as somewhere like Singapore, you might require more like $1,000. 
Direct Billing

A key thing to note is that annual health checks usually require the employee to pay upfront and claim back unless the treatment is planned in advance. If you let us know in advance, our customer support team can arrange direct billing with your preferred health check clinic. 

Where to Get Executive Health Checks


Executive health checks are offered by various healthcare providers. Specialized executive health clinics focus exclusively on executive health, providing personalized and comprehensive services. Many hospitals also have dedicated departments or programs for executive health checks. Additionally, some private healthcare providers offer tailored executive health check packages. It is essential to choose a provider that suits your specific needs and preferences.

Process of Getting an Executive Health Check

The process of getting an executive health check typically begins with scheduling an appointment with your chosen healthcare provider. You may need to complete pre-check questionnaires or assessments provided by the clinic. During the initial consultation, you will meet with a physician to discuss your medical history, lifestyle, and any specific concerns.

The health check involves a series of comprehensive tests and examinations. After the tests, you will receive a detailed report of your results, along with recommendations for any necessary treatments or lifestyle changes. Follow-up appointments or additional tests may be required based on your results.

Medical Exams During Executive Health Checks

An executive health check includes a variety of medical exams. A physical examination assesses your overall health. Blood tests check for conditions such as diabetes, cholesterol levels, and other health markers. Cardiovascular screening includes tests like ECG, stress tests, and echocardiograms to assess heart health.

Cancer screenings are conducted based on age and risk factors, covering cancers such as prostate, breast, or colorectal cancer. Imaging tests like X-rays, ultrasounds, or MRIs provide detailed images of the body’s internal structures. Vision and hearing tests assess any impairments, while lung function tests check respiratory health.

Bone density tests are especially important for older adults to check for osteoporosis. A nutritional and lifestyle assessment evaluates diet, exercise, and overall lifestyle habits, providing a holistic view of your health.

Additional Considerations for Executive Health Checks

Mental health screening is a crucial component of executive health checks. Evaluations for stress, anxiety, and depression are common in high-pressure roles. For those interested, genetic testing can provide insights into inherited conditions and risks.

Based on the results of the health check, a customized health plan addresses specific needs and goals. Ongoing support through health coaching, follow-up consultations, and wellness programs helps maintain health throughout the year.
