Clinicare limits PMI increase to 5 per cent

Clinicare says it is increasing PMI premium rates by just 5 per cent for the second consecutive year.


It says the modest increase is the result of a very successful 1998 during which it picked up a number of sizeable group schemes.


Group manager Les Curson says: &#34Some providers will raise subscriptions by 25 per cent. Our relationships with intermediaries and our reputation of service excellence have grown stronger, and we are therefore optimistic of sustained growth in 1999.&#34
