IFA talk highlights PMI opportunities

The Association of Medical Insurance Intermediaries is hosting a session for IFAs at its annual conference that will focus on private medical insurance as an additional revenue stream.

The AMII says the PMI session is designed to increase advisers’ knowledge of the sector and highlight opportunities for referrals to specialist healthcare intermediaries.

It will be presented by general secretary Michael Payne, who will provide a background to PMI, the size of the market and how people use the policies to gain access to independent treatment. The conference is being held on June 17 in Coventry and includes a medical insurance exhibition.

ABI statistics show that in 2008 over seven million people had some form of private health cover in the UK, an increase of 2.7 per cent on 2007.

AMII chairman Mike Izzard says: “The annual exhibition and conference is a great example of how our industry works together and it is not just for those involved with PMI. We look forward to seeing many new faces.”
