Bupa creates flexible short-term IPMI
A prominent British organisation has announced that it has created a new flexible short-term international private medical insurance (IPMI) product.
Bupa International’s “Bupa Flex” will be available to its customers, but only purchasable on a three to 11 month basis.
This is seen a significant step forward, as previously British professionals that were moving overseas for less than a year had no option but to acquire a static 12-month IPMI policy.
Customers now get better value for money with the flexible package, which essentially matches the duration of their stay abroad.
Muriel MacCallum, marketing director, Bupa International, commented that this change was the result of the organisation listening to the needs of its customers and responding accordingly.
“If you are relocating abroad, or travelling on an overseas assignment through work, you don’t necessarily want to take out a full year’s policy, but you still want the comprehensive cover IPMI provides,” she explained.
“This new product means that our customers will still have access to the best possible care and treatment, wherever they are in the world, but with a timeframe and price that suits their needs.”
