The importance of International Health Insurance: we're celebrating!
Posted by Dannielle Noonan
The international health insurance broker team at Medibroker are proud to announce that we have been shortlisted in the 2015 COVER Excellence Awards in the Best Intermediary Promotion of Health/Protection category! We are also finalists in the much sought-after Best Individual International PMI Intermediary Category in the Health Insurance Intermendiary Awards.
The Health Insurance Intermediary Awards are the most prestigious health cover awards in the industry and we're thrilled to be recognised yet again after our award success in recent years.
The COVER Awards recognises and rewards those firms and intermediaries who have been innovating and serving their customers to the highest standards - and that's exactly what we do.
Our team are thrilled that our commitments to always acting in the best interests is being recognised by the insurance industry as a whole. With the launch of our new website redesign this year, it's been an exciting time of digital developments at Medibroker.
How do we make the insurance industry proud?
Through our creation of informative, entertaining content that actually helps our audience, Medibroker have contributed expert advice to the health protection sector. We actively raise awareness of the need to have health cover, inform people how to take care of their health and explain how health insurance works in an accessible way.
We have found that customers value our transparency and determination to champion the health protection sector.
In addition to this, we will only ever recommend the most appropriate plan for the customer and never push them to buy.
Our integrity was recently underlined by an ‘undercover customer’ who was delighted that a Medibroker advisor advised her that a private health plan was not essential for her particular situation, thus saving her money.
What are we doing to promote the importance of having the correct insurance?
Medibroker has a dedicated expat blog where we share useful articles and relevant information about moving and living abroad. We also have guides to expat health insurance that explain what it is, why you need it and how we can help for people just browsing. We have found that this creates great awareness among the expat community about the importance of having an international medical plan, and so avoids tricky situations abroad.
Our expat community
Medibroker specialise in finding health plans for people living and working abroad, and over our 15 years in this field we’ve had so much insight into what makes expatriates tick. We understand your worries attached to moving abroad, your confusion at different countries’ visa requirements when it comes to insurance and your budget concerns.
Expats use social media daily to help them navigate their lives abroad, and we used this knowledge to help you further. Medibroker run a twice weekly #ExpatHour twitter chat that reaches wandering souls all over the world. It’s a place to voice your experiences, to share fears and tips, and network with others who are doing the same things as you. Whether we’re discussing the foods expats have come to crave in their host country or the difficulty of getting a visa for dependents; you’re sure to have something to say in our conversation.
Many #ExpatHour participants have gone on to be featured in ‘Expat Interviews’ on our blog.
We also tweet throughout the day from @MedibrokerInt, follow us for more expat updates and industry news. You might like our facebook page and you can follow us on Pinterest and LinkedIn to join our communities on these platforms.
