HCI Group Launches New Modular iPMI Plan, NIMBL Health

HealthCare International Group (HCI Group) is set to revolutionise the International Private Medical Insurance (IPMI) market with the launch of NIMBL Health, a fully modular and flexible health care plan designed to meet the unique needs and preferences of people living overseas whether individuals, families, or a group of employees.

NIMBL Health is now available in Africa and Asia and will be available worldwide later in 2023.

NIMBL Health allows your clients to choose the benefits and levels of cover that best suit their personal needs. All plans come with a set of core benefits with a choice of caps and deductibles to suit the client’s budget. NIMBL Health also allows the client to choose additional modules that come with benefit and deductible options to meet the whole spectrum of requirements. Maternity cover is also available for group schemes.

NIMBL Health provides a number of options for areas of cover so that a client can subscribe to exactly the coverage they need.

The quoting platform is designed to be user-friendly, with a simple interface that allows you to easily customise each policy to suit your clients’ needs and budgets.

The NIMBL Health core benefits include inpatient treatment, cancer cover, and emergency dental cover. Customers can choose to cap their core benefits at $250k, $1m, $2m, or $3m with five levels of deductibles from nil through to $10k.

Customers can also choose to add optional modules to their policy; outpatient cover, routine dental cover, and assistance and evacuation with three levels of cover and four levels of deductible. Maternity cover is available for group schemes.

Ian Wood, CEO of HCI Group, said, "Our customers have requested flexibility for their international private medical insurance and with over half a million possible options, NIMBL Health delivers this. By choosing the modular approach of NIMBL Health, we can offer a truly tailored policy suitable for all budgets and circumstances."

NIMBL Health is a game-changer in the health insurance industry, offering customers the freedom and flexibility to choose the coverage they need at a price they can afford. With its innovative modular approach, NIMBL Health is poised to transform the way customers access and manage their international healthcare.

HealthCare International is a leading provider of private medical insurance solutions to people living away from their home country including expats, digital nomads and the internationally mobile. We have been providing reassurance of private medical care to our clients for over 20 years with a footprint in over 120 counties.

In the summer of 2022 we acquired the Integra Global brand and now provide international private medical insurance to professional yacht crew across the globe through our MarineSure Health products.

APRIL International Maintains Top IPMI Service Rating For 2nd Consecutive Year

APRIL International, the international private medical insurance (IPMI) solution provider, is delighted to receive a 5-star service rating for the second year running in Health and Protection’s 2023 IPMI Report. 

The company offers international health insurance plans to individuals, families, students and businesses of all sizes, and received an overall score of 88.5 out of 100 in the report. The rating is based on feedback from over 200 advisers, intermediaries, and brokers.

Joe Thomas, Managing Director of APRIL International UK, said, “For us, as well as receiving the stand-out five-star service rating for the second year in a row, the key takeaway from this report is the fact that we are one of a very small number of providers to record a substantial growth in customer numbers and to show strong continued growth. The research also shows that brokers are optimistic about the sector, with almost two-thirds of intermediaries interviewed saying they had seen increases in business over the last 12 months, with many expecting this pattern to continue.

“Delivering a high-quality service is all about listening to and responding to your customers, so great credit should go to our teams, who have gone from strength to strength in terms of their service offering to both brokers and direct clients. As we forecast last year, international private medical insurance appears to have become firmly established as a “must have” for employers, students and families living and working abroad. This rating leaves us very well positioned to build on our success over the next 12 months.”

APRIL International scored highly across all categories in the research. The business is particularly pleased with its high ratings performance in the areas of quote and application support, speed of response and staff expertise, and problem solving. These are all critical to the success of the broker/client relationship and to ensuring repeat business levels and renewals remain strong.

Joe Thomas continues, “We have continued to invest heavily this year to make sure our partners feel fully supported in their client relationship and that their investment has proved to be well judged.”

“In the future, compliance and ever-changing global regulations stand out as the major challenges faced by brokers. We have wholly owned subsidiaries or full-service offices in many of the major global population centres including London, Paris, Cologne, Dubai (UAE), Mexico City, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Singapore, Shanghai, Jakarta, and Ho Chi Minh City. These act as our foundation for compliance, enabling us to sell and support policies with local knowledge and expertise. This network supplies up-to-date compliance information to the wider Group, which we are then able to cascade down to brokers. Information is constantly updated to ensure worldwide compliance.”

APRIL is continuing to invest in its global strategy of digitisation, smoothing and simplifying the customer journey and to roll out new initiatives and improvements with services such as telehealth, giving clients unlimited access to phone-based GP consultations.

Trawick International Celebrates 25th Anniversary

Trawick International, an industry-leading international insurance company, is celebrating 25 years of providing insurance solutions that support today's globally mobile population.

Founded by Daryl Trawick in February 1998, Trawick International began as an insurance broker providing solutions for students and scholars studying outside their home country. In 2008, with healthcare reform on the horizon and uncertainty in the student market, Trawick diversified the Company's portfolio by adding travel insurance to its offerings. By 2010, travel insurance became the Company's core offering. Today, Trawick International continues to offer student insurance and a suite of domestic and international travel insurance solutions, from travel medical to trip cancellation, cruise to adventure travel insurance.

Trawick further diversified the Company's offerings in 2022 by adding products to support expatriates and educators worldwide, including international group health, life, and disability. Additionally, the Company's global footprint grew with expanded Latin America and UK divisions and Global Accident, Health & Life Reinsurance services.

When asked about the secret to the company’s success, Daryl Trawick, President and CEO, Trawick International commented, "There are many factors that have contributed to our success, but none more than the people that work here. The employees at Trawick International have deep international insurance experience combined with passion and drive to innovate and excel at what they do. I truly believe they are the reason the Company has grown and succeeded in the way it has."

What started as a one-person business in the bedroom of Trawick's then-home grew to about ten employees based out of a small Alabama office and is now a fully remote, nearly 100-person company with employees across the U.S. and U.K. The Company also has more than 15,000 partners distributing its products.

Trawick added, "Along with the employees, I want to thank our customers and partners. Without them, we could not exist. I am extremely proud of our accomplishments over the last 25 years. The best is yet to come, and I look forward to many more years of growth and innovation."

Passportcard's Innovative ASO Solution For Large Customers

International health insurance provider enables full cost control.

PassportCard's payment processing and administration of medical services (ASO solution) is now also used by Lufthansa. More than 20,000 members of its flight staff already benefit from it.

The large company enjoys a comprehensive cost control solution without the need to take out insurance.

The ASO solution enables claims management, cost savings, app usage and PassportCard's innovative card solution - around the clock and around the world.

Eithan Wolf, CEO PassportCard EUROPE told iPMIM, “PassportCard is incredibly proud to service 23000 air crew members of Lufthansa. At the same time it gives us the ultimate proof that we are on the right track on our journey to become the leading IPMI provider in Europe.”

Advantages of the ASO solution

ASO (Administration Services Only) solutions are ideal for large clients where the risk is self-sustaining from an actuarial perspective. In this case, it is more advantageous for companies to be considered "self-pay" in order to receive the full benefits of the insurance but save the insurance margin and the insurer's profit.

In an ASO solution, the claims fund, i.e. the account from which claims are paid, is topped up by the customer. This means that the company itself pays.

On average, the cost saving of an ASO solution compared to full insurance is about 20 per cent.

PassportCard has been managing ASO solutions for government agencies and large corporations for many years.

Effect of ASO solutions

ASO solutions unite the client and the provider. The ASO partner analyses the data every month to track the results and behaviour of the portfolio. Optimising changes can then be made to the performance table, which can be adjusted with the client's approval to achieve better cost containment results.

After one year, there is sufficient data to enter into either the continuation of the ASO solutions or the provision of a full insurance mechanism.

PassportCard is a member of the DavidShield and White Mountains group of companies (NYSE: WTM), which has been a leader in international health and travel insurance since 1999 and serves over two million customers worldwide. The Hamburg-based company has focused on the German market since 2015 and works with Allianz, MGEN and TK. The company is a winner of the German Innovation Award 2021 and belongs to the Leading Employer Top 1%.
