Allianz Worldwide Care launches international PMI product

Allianz Worldwide Care has launched an international private medical insurance (PMI) scheme, which is designed for UK-based employees and expatriates.

The product called, Signature, is divided into two core plans: Signature Prime and Signature Plus. These cover a range of in-patient and day-care treatments.

There are also a number of optional add-ons to the core plans, which cover out-patient treatment, routine health checks, GP visits, dental and optical benefits, and maternity treatment.

The scheme also includes:

  • The option to have treatment overseas for any treatment covered under the plan, as well as cover for emergency treatment abroad.
  • Comprehensive cover for cancer treatment, for as long as it is medically necessary, even if the cancer is terminal.
  • Cover for pre-existing or chronic conditions, including on-going maintenance and routine monitoring.
  • Choice of three hospital networks.
  • Benefits for routine health checks, physiotherapy and dental treatment.

Claude Daboul, director of sales, marketing and operations at Allianz Worldwide Care, said: “We looked at existing plans and, more importantly, we looked at the gaps in those plans and compared them to the needs of employers.
