Instant appointment booking, one of the features being carried out in partnership with Doctorola Ltd. provides members the opportunity to book appointments with over 2,000 doctors through the Tonic App.

Members can also chat with doctors in the same format as popular messaging apps and receive thorough, tailored, confidential advice. Furthermore, Tonic Premium has daily reserved appointments with the 30 top doctors in the country, giving prioritized access when needed the most.

As medical expenses rise, people are burdened with more than they can pay. To relieve some of this burden, Premium offers 25,000 takas for hospital stay (three nights or more) up to 10 times a year, hassle-free and with no illnesses as exceptions. Premium members will also be eligible for up to 50% discount on executive health checks at Tonic’s premium partner hospitals and be allocated 90 minutes of free over-the-phone doctor consultations per month.

Since launching the first version of Tonic Free last year, 3 million people have subscribed to the free service. Over the course of this, Telenor Health has heard that people want a health care service that will relieve some of the financial burdens, provide easy access to doctors and high-quality advice.

‘After the great success of Tonic Basic, we are excited to bring the next generation of services to consumers. The new products offer unprecedented healthcare value to the users in Bangladesh market’, said CEO Sajid Rahman. ‘They are intended to fulfill the needs for those who want more from our digital health service’

Any GP subscriber can join Tonic Premium for the affordable cost of Tk 298 per month.  Consumers can also opt for Tonic Advanced, which provides a lower level of hospital cash coverage (Tk 100,000 annually) at a lower price point of Tk 128 per month.  And, as always, GP subscribers can join the basic Tonic offering and get Tk 4,000 in annual coverage for free.
