CEGA expands medical team to meet demand from travel and international health insurers

Assistance, claims and travel risk management provider CEGA, a Charles Taylor company, has added two new doctors to its in-house medical team; enhancing its global provision for travel and international health insurers.

Dr Fiona Gillespie and Dr Chris Busuttil, emergency medicine consultants at Royal Sussex County Hospital and Queen Alexandra Hospital Portsmouth respectively, are the latest recruits to join CEGA’s in-house medics.

CEGA’s substantial team of doctors and nurses provide medical assistance and repatriation services to thousands of individuals every year (many in remote and offshore destinations) on behalf of travel and international health insurers. They also work closely with in-house cost containment and claims teams to validate medical bills from overseas hospitals.

CEGA’s Chief Medical Officer Dr Lynn Gordon comments, “Extending our multi-skilled medical team reinforces our ability to support a growing number of global clients and their customers with the excellent service they expect.

“We ensure that all our doctors have experience of emergency or remote medicine and that many currently work in an NHS environment – demonstrating our commitment to provide the very best care to those in need, wherever they are in the world.”
