LONDON, April 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- MediCare International has today announced the launch of online buying as a central part of their newly designed website. Clients can log on, select a policy level suitable for their circumstances, generate a quote and then proceed to full online purchase of the policy, all in around 2 minutes at any time of the day, wherever they are in the world. The London based international health insurance provider has over 25 year's experience of delivering world class cover for both individuals and staff groups and sees online buying as a major customer requirement for the future.
Commenting on the new launch, David Pryor, senior Executive Director said, "The launch of our online buying package, which is aimed at expatriates of all nationalities, will bring significant service benefits to clients worldwide. We already have a reputation for one of the fastest claims settlement times in the market, a major benefit which our own research has highlighted regularly as a key service requirement. Now clients can log on and use their credit card to buy the correct policy for their circumstances in a matter of minutes, wherever they are in the world. The new website lays out policy coverage and details, so choosing the right option is simple, quick and easy."
The new online purchase option adds to MediCare International's reputation as a comprehensive and flexible provider of global medical healthcare insurance. Already know as a pioneer in the area of chronic cover, MediCare International was one of the first international insurers to offer policies which met all of the costs of chronic illness treatment, both on diagnosis and in the future. MediCare International policies are also popular with organisations working in war zones and reconstruction areas, as they were again one of the first to provide so-called passive war cover, which is often essential for NGOs and contractors working in the more volatile parts of the globe. Agreed medical claims are usually settled within 2 days, making MediCare International one of the fastest payers in the market.
With clients drawn from 86 nationalities in 114 countries, MediCare International is a major provider of health insurance for expatriates of all nationalities across the world.
