Specialist private medical insurance publisher, Craigdallie of West Sussex, has published the 2020 edition of its PMI Handbook.
The book is aimed at professional advisers seeking information on the different PMI plans available in the UK market.
The 266-page book acts as a sales-aid and reference source, providing cover details on both individual and group policies from over 20 insurers on a like-for-like basis.
Each entry is colour-coded and contains cover comparisons, commission guides, contact details and special points to note on each contract.
A glossary of the main medical terms is included as well as a contact list of international PMI providers.

The publication is suitable for both intermediaries currently active in PMI and those wishing to enter the market.
Andrew Green, compiler of the book, said the past year has seen a stabilisation in the number of plans available in the UK.
“In the previous two years, the number of plans available had been reducing as a result of the removal in older style plans from product ranges. During that time, an increasing number of insurers have been updating their product ranges by developing modular policies based on a core cover where customers could select additional benefits to suit their needs. This approach appears to be well advanced now,” he added.
The A5 sized handbook is published in loose-leaf binder format and updated annually.
The cost for an annual subscription is £118, but there is a 35% discount for subscribers to Health Insurance & Protection, equating to £76 (plus P&P).
