In response to the announcement that April UK PMI is withdrawing from the UK health insurance market, Stuart Scullion, Chairman of the Association of Medical Insurers and Intermediaries (AMII) said:
“The message is: ‘Stay calm and seek independent and impartial advice’.
“We are both surprised and disappointed to hear of the withdrawal of April UK from the private medical insurance market. April’s announcement they are to close to new business, but more importantly not invite renewal to existing customers, has the potential to create consumer detriment.
“Those who are claiming or about to claim face uncertainty regarding their future cover beyond the period of their current contract.
“We would encourage consumers to stay calm and seek independent and impartial advice at the earliest opportunity.
“They can get advice or find an expert on the AMII website at www.amii.org.uk by clicking on the Ask an Expert or Find an Expert buttons from one of more than 125 healthcare intermediaries located throughout the UK. Our members are here to help.”
