Business rises by 50% at Clinicare

Private medical insurer Clinicare saw the number of people covered by its schemes rise by 50 per cent last year compared with what it claims is an average industry growth of 5 per cent.

General manager Les Curson says Clinicare has increased the number of people it insures by about 50 per cent in each of the past three years.

Clinicare is the brand name for the range of PMI products offered jointly by the Medical Insurance Agency and French insurer Strasbourgeoise Assurance Mutuelle.

Curson says: "While sales of individual schemes have been good, we are particul- arly pleased with the group figures.

"By offering a range of plans to suit a wide range of budgets and needs, we have given ourselves a market advantage which we will continue to exploit during 1998."
