The Insurance Helpline, a specialist broker which finds life cover for clients with medical conditions, has added links on its website to PMI and travel insurance brokers which also specialise in this area.
The firm, which is a subsidiary of Totally Insured Group, has been referring clients with pre-existing conditions wanting travel cover to Medici Travel Insurance.
The broker has now begun putting customers wanting affordable private healthcare in touch with Health Trust and is looking to add companies offering other types of insurance to the website.
Totally Insured Group managing director Ron Moonsinghe says: “When anyone has had a problem with their health they will inevitably have problems with their insurance. We were being asked all the time if we offered travel insurance and PMI. We don’t but we knew that Medici and Health Trust did and did it well so we decided to put this information on our website. We want to be a one-stop shop for people with pre-existing medical conditions to get insurance, not just life.”
In June, the company teamed up with pharmaceutical firm Abbott Diabetes Care to help people with pre-existing diabetic conditions get cover. Abbott produces FreeStyle blood glucose monitoring systems to help people control their condition and the Insurance Helpline supplies the monitoring systems free to any person with diabetes who asks for a quote.
The company has also recently signed a deal with IFA networks Only Finance and In Partnership. In Partnership compliance director Gordon McNeill says: “Using Insurance Helpline, the adviser can help their client get cover when they thought they would never get it and not just give up after the first life office says sorry.”
