Medgate, the leading telemedicine provider in the Philippines, announced today that it has partnered with Country Bankers Insurance Group (CBIG) to further expand its presence here in the country.

CBIG is composed of two companies – Country Bankers Life Insurance Corporation(CBLIC) and Country Bankers Insurance Corporation(CBIC), which provides life and non life insurance plans, respectively. CBIG traces its roots from the prestigious group of Rural Bankers hailing from all regions of the Philippines, founded by the late Don Jose E. Desiderio, Sr., and Don Alfredo L. Montelibano Sr., both well – known rural bankers, almost 60 years ago.

CBIG concentrated its main thrust in the countryside, servicing small business entrepreneurs, industrialists, farmers, fishermen, and many others who seldom have the opportunity to avail of insurance coverage.

On the other hand, Medgate offers high quality, convenient and confidential medical consultations over the phone. This means, that members have direct access to a qualified doctor for their daily health care needs, without visiting a clinic or a hospital. The Medgate Telemedicine Center, and the Medgate Partner Network integrate their work closely to guarantee comprehensive health care for the patient. All the doctors are licensed and certified to provide telemedicine consultations of the highest standard.

“We believe that the best way to reach and help more Filipinos is by partnering with a company who through the years, remained competitive with product innovations,” Estrella added.
