About AMII for Professional Advisers
The Association of Medical Insurers and Intermediaries (AMII) was established in 1998 as a trade association for independent medical insurance advisers based in the UK.
AMII is the only specialist intermediary trade body within the Private Medical Insurance industry and has close relationships with the PMI providers.
AMII seeks to work with industry bodies, such as: the Association of British Insurers (ABI); the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII); Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS); advising those who will be making policy decisions which relate to our industry. These organisations recognise and value the specialist knowledge that AMII can bring to them about the workings of the PMI sector of the insurance industry.
AMII has worked in conjunction with the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) to produce the new industry standard training course and examination in health insurance – IF7 Healthcare Insurance Products.
Our Member meetings include presentations from leading industry bodies, such as The Financial Services Authority, Financial Ombudsman Service, Chartered Institute of Insurers, Laing & Buisson, The Bank of England, and independent treatment providers. Meetings qualify for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points.
In addition, members and their staff have subsidised training opportunities. Compliance and regulatory advice is available via Branko Ltd.
Members regularly comment upon how useful it is to be able to get together with other PMI professionals (both intermediaries and insurers) to exchange ideas, and to air views and issues.
Members also benefit from AMII’s work in the promotion of health insurance, and of specialist independent advice to the public.
Our website incorporates a “Find-A-Broker” section so that consumers can easily locate their nearest AMII intermediary member.
AMII works on behalf of it’s membership to represent their views regarding the health insurance sector – to the public, to insurers, and to regulatory and industry bodies. In these ways, we can fulfil our aim of Bringing the Health Insurance Industry Together.
