The Association of Medical Insurers and Intermediaries (AMII) has announced health cash plan provider Medicash and protection and health provider April UK and have joined as corporate members, taking the organisation’s total membership to 14 providers.
Medicash is one of the UK’s largest health cash plan providers in the UK, with 160,000 individual and corporate customers.
APRIL UK was established in 1997 and is part of April Group, a global insurance brand operating in 37 countries that provides protection and health insurance to the UK market.
Medicash and April UK will be joining the other AMII Corporate Members at the AMII Summit 2014, taking place on 25 November 2014, at the QEII Conference Centre, London. Specialist healthcare intermediaries can attend this event without charge by contacting AMII.
AMII Chairman Wayne Pontin says: “As AMII enters its second year of offering Corporate Membership, the inclusion of Medicash and April UK proves that AMII’s Corporate Membership proposition continues to gather momentum with the healthcare providers. We are now up to 14 Corporate Members and in advanced stages of negotiations with others who are looking to join in 2015. Corporate Members appreciate the access that AMII membership gives them to the specialist healthcare intermediary channel, and are committed to working with AMII to improve standards across the healthcare insurance sector.”
Medicash chief executive Sue Weir says: “AMII plays an important role in promoting and maintaining industry standards and we strongly believe in effective partnerships and collaboration. We are therefore very pleased to have joined as corporate members and look forward to working closely with AMII and supporting their activities.”
April UK marketing manager Isaac Lam says: “We are delighted to become Corporate Members of AMII. In the medical insurance industry, with the challenges that we face, it’s important that insurers and intermediaries work hand in hand to develop relevant services and grow the industry. AMII provides a great platform to do this and we look forward to meeting members throughout the year at their events.”
