John Hancock to offer discounted access to whole-body MRI scans

John Hancock announced it is the first insurer in the US to offer discounted access to Prenuvo’s whole-body MRI scans to eligible John Hancock Vitality customers.

Members will receive a $500 discount on Prenuvo’s whole-body scans, which can help detect cancer, aneurysms, and other diseases. Prenuvo offers three types of scans which go for $999, $1799, and $2499. The company has clinics in New York, Redwood City, Los Angeles, Dallas, Boca Raton, Chicago, Bethesda (DC metro area), Vancouver, and a partner location in Minneapolis.

After receiving a scan, qualified John Hancock Vitality members will have the opportunity to review their report with a nurse practitioner arranged by Prenuvo. Individual reports will not be shared with John Hancock and will not impact a customer’s current life insurance coverage, pricing, or status in the John Hancock Vitality Program.

“Early detection for cancer, lifestyle diseases, neurological diseases, and countless other health issues can make a world of difference for not just individuals and their families, but for society, our healthcare system, and our business. That’s why, at John Hancock, we’re committed to offering our customers access to emerging technologies that can help them take control of their health and hopefully drive better outcomes. We’re thrilled to bring Prenuvo’s visionary MRI technology to our customers.” – Brooks Tingle, president and CEO, John Hancock.

“Out of the $4.5 trillion spent on healthcare in the US, less than 4% is allocated to preventative care. That needs to change. Our collaboration with John Hancock marks the first step towards making preventative healthcare more accessible to consumers, and we’re excited to expand this partnership in the future as part of our ongoing efforts to engage with the insurance industry.” – Andrew Lacy, CEO and founder of Prenuvo.
