Medical Screening Services
Our team of highly trained screening professionals have been delivering a expert service to Travel Underwriters and Insurers for over 12 years.
We offer a guaranteed quality of medical screening services; which are cost efficient, proactive and flexible to any Underwriter’s requirements, to provide medical underwriting for a wide range of travel and life insurance schemes, both for ‘special risks’ and domestic travel insurances.
Our objective is to ensure that excellent medical risk management processes commence at policy inception.
Our unique screening system carries a comprehensive library of medications and medical conditions, that are constantly updated to ensure accuracy and keep our experienced team of dedicated medical screening assessors up to date and able to accurately pinpoint risk. Consistency in risk assessment relies on robust procedure and highly trained and closely supervised staff that efficiently identify the fullest range of risks when advanced medical screening measures are needed. We question until satisfied that we have a clear medical picture.
When presented with a complex list of medications and medical conditions, our thorough approach and understanding of the impact of these conditions, relevant to the proposed travel to be undertaken, or the activities planned presents, allow us to apply pre-determined decisions and generate premium reflective of the risk in question. Capturing the medication detail gives us a clear indication of what condition(s) a customer has, how severe it is and whether it is well controlled and stable.
If our screening staff do identify something different, untoward, unusual as a result of our questions – we address and assess it accordingly – rather than ignore it because it doesn’t fall into an automated question process.
Having provided a medical assessment, International Medical Screening will issue documentation confirming the terms under which the cover has been extended, thereby ensuring that both the insured and insurer are confident that the policy provides appropriate cover.
Our service are available for Travel and Life Underwriters and our screening platform can be operated as a telephone or integrated online screening process. We invite interested parties to make contact with us for further discussion of individual requirements.
