The Association of British Insurer’s (ABI) private medical insurance working party is holding a meeting with specialist PMI intermediaries to launch a consultation process on developments within the industry.
The meeting – to be held on April 27 – will take place at the ABI’s offices in London.
It will cover the proposals which have arisen from the working party’s discussions on self-regulation with the Office of Fair Trading.
This includes the new consumer product literature and new product outlines. Additional issues on the agenda will include revision of the code of selling to strengthen the case for self-regulation.
The party is also working alongside the General Insurance Standards Council to promote the issues which are specific to the industry.
Prime Health’s Mandy Blanks commented that the purpose of this was to ensure the PMI industry’s voice was heard and that there was recognition of the ways in which it differed from general insurance.
The initial meeting will be followed up by a series of roadshows designed for intermediaries, which will be running throughout June.
