MedEx has launched a new combined optic al and dental policy, Personal Optident, which is available either as a stand-alone product or as an addition to existing medical insurance.
OptiDent is open to anyone aged 18-80 – premium rates are not related to the policyholder’s age – and offers a variety of levels of cover, costing from as little as £1.50 a week. Cover is available for individuals, couples and families.
MedEx spokesperson Paul Simons commented: “Optident is the first simple, comprehensive combined optical and dental insurance plan, offering brokers realistic and sustainable commission, as well as the opportunity to increase their client’s cover simply in an area not usually covered by PMI.
“Underwritten by Pinnacle Insurance, one of the UK’s leading providers of creditor insurance, the plan allows policyholders to begin claiming from the wide range of benefits as soon as they join the scheme. On top of a 100 per cent refund of the cost of eyesight tests and dental bills as a result of accident and emergency, and 75 per cent of optical bills and regular dental bills, Optident also provides a 24-hour medical helpline for use by its members.
