iPMI Magazine Protects Business During COVID-19

iPMI Magazine, the only dedicated online platform serving the international private medical insurance market, is excited to announce a range of COVID-19 business protection, support and continuity services.

The range of services will assist your business in these difficult times and will be announced 1-by-1 over the coming weeks. 

Christopher Knight, CEO, iPMI Magazine comments, "We are living in risky times. Global markets have crashed. The world is at a stand still. It is going to take years for recovery, especially if you are working international travel insurance markets. Fortunately iPMI Magazine caters for an entirely different market - the international medical insurance market; serving the complex medical requirements of expatriates worldwide.

As travel insurers wash their hands of COVID-19 risks, it leaves many travel insurance market payors and providers in a vulnerable position. With this in mind, we have designed a program of business continuity services, in order to support both medical and travel insurance markets. Many who serve the travel insurance market are perfectly positioned to cater for international medical requirements, and now is the time that those businesses look a little further than lost luggage and missed flights."

David Bond, CIO, iPMI Magazine adds, "Global passenger traffic results for March 2020 show that demand (measured in total revenue passenger kilometers or RPKs) dived 52.9% compared to the year-ago period.This is the exact time that travel insurance market payors and providers need to look at new markets, and the expatriate market is the perfect place to focus. Once the dust settles travellers will be looking for all-out, full blown medical coverage - the insurance plans of yesterday will not be in demand tomorrow. This means there will be in a boom in international private medical insurance, where underwriters and providers are already reacting proactively to the COVID-19 risks."

The iPMI Market

The globally mobile population has grown dramatically along with the increased global business.

How well positioned is iPMI Magazine to survive COVID-19?

Ask our clients who are now booking 2 year digital marketing programs in advance. Our renewal rate for digital marketing services remains at 100%. Once clients join, they stay. iPMI Magazine was designed coming out of the crash of 2008 and is perfectly positioned in the face of new risks.

APRIL International Care Scoops 3 New Awards

APRIL International Care, the specialist international private medical insurance (iPMI) division of APRIL Group has scooped three prestigious awards in the 2020 Global Banking and Finance awards.

April International Care's Asian subsidiary picked up the first place in three categories:

  • Best Individual Health Insurance Company Asia Pacific 2020
  • Best Health Insurance Product (MyHEALTH) Asia Pacific 2020
  • Best Health Insurance App (Easy Claim) Asia Pacific 2020

Acknowledging the achievement, Regional CEO of APRIL International Care Asia, Romain Di Meglio first paid tribute to the work of the teams across April International's Asian network, then added that he felt, "APRIL International Care's iPMI business line is now gaining increasing recognition in a highly competitive market space all across Asia, building on our firm foundations in France and in the United Kingdom."

Di Meglio singled out the fast-growing relationship with key brokers across the region as being a vital part of the Group's success, adding that effective and innovative product development has also played an important role.

"MyHEALTH was launched in five countries, Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam and the Philippines and each year we have worked hard to adapt and update policy benefits to keep it relevant. For instance, in Hong Kong and Singapore, these changes recently included a doubling of the out of area cover to USD100,000 and the introduction of cutting-edge technologies such as stem cell treatment have helped to set us apart. Equally, in times of economic austerity, innovative moves designed to help contain costs and offset the effects of medical price inflation, such as the option to have  inpatient treatment  delivered  via a "specified providers" network, which triggers a premium reduction, have been popular and now recognised by the judges at Global Banking and Finance too."

"Our award-winning mobile app is another case in point. Accessible to all APRIL International Care clients around the world, it allows you to send your medical invoices electronically, so you don't need to send us the original invoices anymore. The app can also be used to access 24/7 teleconsultations, a particularly relevant addition in the current climate. Innovations such as these give clients a reason to buy our products and are popular with brokers, as they help us to stand out in a relevant and innovate way and it is pleasing to see this recognised by the awards judges too."

Di Meglio ends, "We are confident in our ability to be able to continue to keep growing our share of the global iPMI market through the development of competitive solutions and innovative concepts, whilst delivering excellent support and superior service. Awards such as the three just announced show we are moving in the right direction."

APRIL International Care are specialists in designing and delivering flexible international private health insurance solutions for individuals, families and companies. For more information on TeleHEALTH, contact APRIL International Care in Hong Kong, or visit www.april-international.com.

Pacific Prime has been awarded Individual Broker of the Year 2019. They received the award at the Cigna Partner Seminar (Middle East and North Africa [MENA] region), which took place on December 14th, 2019 in Cape Town, South Africa.

Richard Rilesone (Cigna’s Director of Sales and Client Management for the MENA region) and Jerome Droesch (CEO of Cigna for the MENA region) presented the award to representatives from Pacific Prime Dubai at the seminar.

CEO Jerome Droesch said, “I would like to extend my congratulations to Pacific Prime for winning the IPMI Broker of the Year award. This award recognizes their unique contributions and dedication which have helped us build our IPMI offering and broaden our services to our customers.”

RELATED: iPMI Magazine Speaks With Jerome Droesch, CEO, Cigna, MENA

“Pacific Prime’s approach with clientele in the SME and individual health insurance space has set them apart this year and we look forward to continuing our relationship to deliver excellence and meet our customers’ needs.”

Nageen Sattar, Director, Regional Client Services at Pacific Prime Dubai, was one of the recipients who received the award on behalf of Pacific Prime. “It’s rewarding to see the results of working closely with Cigna regarding their individual product in such a short time span. We have advised, and worked with, Cigna on their DHA plan since their initial launch in late 2017.”

“In 2018, we sat with Cigna numerous times to design a new plan that would be competitive in the marketplace, resulting in a complete redesign of their UAE product followed by a relaunch in February this year. We have now increased the policy count by 70%, and are getting close to USD $1 million in premium with them this year. We look forward to continuing to work closely with Cigna and achieving mutually beneficial results.”

Pacific Prime is a global health insurance broker that provides health insurance coverage to over half a million people in more than 130 countries. Along with health insurance, Pacific Prime also provides comprehensive company insurance and employee benefits solutions, with over 4,000 corporate clients around the world.

Globality Health Withdraws From UK IPMI Market

In light of the compliance challenges created by Brexit, Globality Health is withdrawing from the UK IPMI market. Customers are offered a continuation option with Bupa Global.

Globality Health shall continue business as usual in other key markets such as Germany, Spain and others, which are completely unaffected by this decision.

Globality Health confirms key dates and collaborates with Bupa Global to help honour all customers

From 11 January 2020, Globality Health will no longer quote for any new business or renewal terms with start dates from 1 May 2020 onwards.

All existing policyholders will remain fully protected until the policy’s renewal date - should an illness or injury happen while they are living or working overseas.

Globality Health and Bupa Global have achieved a mutual agreement that allows Globality’s customers to continue their international health plan with Bupa Global. At renewal time, Bupa Global will offer each Globality customer a new quote on favorable and comparable terms.

Globality’s gradual withdrawal from the UK will therefore take until the middle of 2021 to complete.

Why Globality Health is withdrawing from the UK market

Globality is withdrawing from the UK market due to the changes and challenges caused by Brexit. The move shall allow Globality more focus on other markets where it can continue to achieve scale and profitability.

Globality shall continue business as usual in other key markets such as Germany, Spain and others, which are completely unaffected by this decision.

How Bupa Global will deliver continuation cover

Bupa Global’s brand, scale, expertise and strong service model convinced Globality that customers would be in great hands. Dr. Cornelia Roeskau, Globality Health, CCO commented, “After very careful consideration, we have taken the difficult decision to withdraw from the IPMI market in the UK after Brexit. With Bupa Global we have found a partner who shares our values of customer focus and high-end client services. We are happy to be in a position to offer continuity to our valued customers and to know they are in the care-taking hands of this strong and reliable partner.”

At renewal time, each customer will receive a personalized communication including the option to contact Bupa Global. In this context, customers who accept Bupa Global’s terms will do so on a non-advised basis, with Globality acting as an introducer. Customers choosing to accept their policies with Bupa Global will become Bupa Global customers and will no longer have a relationship with Globality.

Teresa Wighton, Bupa Global, UK Group Sales Director, commented, “We are working with Globality following their decision to withdraw from the UK market and look forward to welcoming their customers to Bupa Global. We are offering Globality customers a comparable product so they can continue to be covered for international private medical insurance and get access to leading healthcare, when they need it. We will ensure there is a smooth transfer and fast-track registration to Bupa Global.”  

Globality Health are confident that the customer communications programme they have in place shall help make this a smooth transition process.  Both Globality Health and Bupa Global customer and broker service teams will also be available to further smooth the transition.
