International health insurers are not being clear enough in explaining to planholders exactly what treatments they will cover, international PMI provider InterGlobal has said.
Paul Weigall, group sales and marketing director of InterGlobal, said: "We regularly review all the policies on the market. Looking at international medical insurance plans across the board we've been shocked to find out just how hard it is to work out what cancer treatments are covered and which are excluded by some providers.
"Our existing plans are already very clear on cancer care, but we believe we can still make improvements in clarity and cover. In fact, I think the time has come for the health insurance industry as a whole to become more transparent on explaining the cancer cover provided.
"What planholders really need to know is that they will be able to receive top quality cancer treatment anywhere in the world - knowing that their insurer is committed to picking up the bill in full - with no ifs and buts."
InterGlobal will unveil its 2014 UltraCare range shortly, including new cancer care benefits.
