AMII 2012: New chairman says ‘never a better time’ to be in private health insurance

“There has never been a better time to be in the private health insurance market”, according to the chairman of the Association of Medical Insurance Intermediaries (AMII).

Speaking at the AMII Private Healthcare Summit in London on 3 July, Wayne Pontin told delegates that with NHS waiting times increasing and some NHS trusts going into administration, opportunities are there for the private healthcare sector.

He called on insurance providers to deliver products that top up and complement existing public healthcare services.

Pontin said: “We need products and services that top up NHS services from the private sector, and we need the government to consider preventative healthcare initiatives”
