Global healthcare benefits provider Aetna International will be entering an international private medical insurance (IPMI) agreement with Aviva UK as of 1 May 2018.
From this date, Aviva UK will no longer provide IPMI cover for new customers or for existing customers wishing to renew their policies.
Under the agreement, existing Aviva IPMI customers will be offered continuation terms at policy renewal with Aetna International. Existing Aviva customers who renew their policy will then become Aetna customers and will no longer have a relationship with Aviva.
“We are delighted to have reached this agreement with Aviva. We are committed to delivering Aviva’s IPMI customers continuation of cover with Aetna that provides comparable benefits and an excellent level of service. This is very much in line with our business strategy to deliver comprehensive healthcare benefits worldwide,” said David Healy, CEO EMEA - Aetna International. “Our scale, expertise, customer service infrastructure and technological focus in IPMI allow us to make a significant contribution to improving people’s health and the quality of care they receive.”
