Mortgage network First Complete has launched a panel of nine private medical insurance (PMI) providers for its broker members to use with clients.
The PMI panel will be an addition to First Complete's protection panel. The panel enables brokers to offer their clients access to private medical insurance and a health cash plan.
With the launch of the panel, First Complete has increased its number of PMI providers from one to nine in a bid to increase customer choice.
The PMI panel of nine providers comprises: April UK, Aviva, AXA-PPP, Bupa, Exeter Family Friendly, Freedom Health Insurance, General & Medical, Health Shield and Vitality Health.
First Complete said this addition is timely considering the mounting pressure on the NHS.
Customers who have a corporate PMI in place as part of their employment package can also maintain their benefits should they leave their employer and so lose their corporate benefit.
They will be able to switch to an individual policy if the same provider is on the panel.
Toni Smith, sales operations director for First Complete said: "We have launched this PMI panel in response to growing demand from our brokers. The launch of the panel presents an opportunity for brokers to address customer needs and offer professional advice with a genuine value for money service. Our panel of nine also allows us to address a wide range of budgets catering for every customer's needs.
"For our brokers who are not PMI specialists, we will be able to link them up with one who is ensuring a genuinely good service to customers and providing a better customer outcome."
