In light of increased cuts and pressure on NHS resources, consumers and employers wanting clear and unbiased information on private medical insurance (PMI) and access to independent advice are directed to the new website of The Association of Medical Insurance Intermediaries (AMII).
The site www.amii.co.uk provides information on what health insurance is, the benefits of getting independent advice, why individuals should use an AMII member and a glossary of private medical insurance terms.
A ‘find-a-broker’ section of the site allows the public to search for AMII members who provide specialist independent advice on the type of PMI product they are looking for: either a personal UK policy or a UK company scheme for up to 49 employees, 50-249 employees, or over 250. Consumers can also search for intermediaries who can offer specialist advice on international health insurance whether on an individual or group basis.
In launching the site Andrew Tripp, Chairman of AMII said: “The consumer focus of the new AMII website really supports health insurance intermediaries in providing generic and useful information for potential clients on PMI. For brokers themselves the site also includes details of AMII membership benefits and application form to join AMII. And AMII members benefit from a free listing in the Find-A-Broker section of the site, which will hopefully drive enquiries to their firms.”
