The Association of Medical Insurance Intermediaries (AMII) has announced three sub committees working directly to the main Executive Committee.
The new sub committees are as follows:
- Provider Membership – Wayne Pontin, Stuart Scullion, Sue Smith and Mike Izzard
- Employee Benefits and Larger Intermediary Membership – Wayne Pontin, Liz Naulls and Mike Izzard
- Standards & Relationships – Wayne Pontin, Lindsey Joseph, Stuart Scullion and Brian Walters
Wayne Pontin, AMII’s Chairman said, “These are the foundation blocks to AMII raising standards and becoming the reference organisation for the healthcare insurance industry. The sub committees are designed to increase awareness and improve our visibility whilst at the same time ensuring we have a sound financial footing and are truly representative of all distribution channels across all sectors of health insurance.
“Our mission statement and association objectives will be issued after a complete review of the existing constitution and following a census approval via the membership. AMII is changing and is leading the way in a market landscape which is also changing with the advent of NHS Reforms; Provider Consolidation and given a backdrop of the recent OFT referral of the private healthcare market services to the Competition Committee. We will seek to encourage transparency and growth and will lobby for improvement both politically and via the regulator of the future
“AMII has established a superb relationship with the Chartered Insurance Institute through its very close liaison over examinations and qualifications. We will build on that further and will look to work more closely with the Association of British Insurers (ABI), Association of International Medical Insurance Providers (AIMIP), Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS), Group Risk Development Group (GRiD) and British Insurance Brokers Association (BIBA).
“Our events programme also play an important role for the Association and the upcoming AMII 2012 will be our first private healthcare summit, and will give advisers looking at the PMI market an excellent opportunity to meet and network with specialists in this field.”
AMII 2012 is being held on Tuesday, 3 July at the Royal College of Physicians, in London’s Regent’s Park. Keynote speakers will be The Rt. Hon. Stephen Dorrell, MP and Chair of the Health Select Committee and broadcaster and TV medical correspondent, Fergus Walsh.
