Angus Slater, Marketing Director, Bupa Global, commented:

“We’ve worked closely with our customers to develop our new product range by surveying 3,000 people in six countries to find out what they want from an international private medical insurance plan. Through this in-depth research, we found an unanswered customer demand for products that provide the highest level of international cover.

“The first sale of our most premium global health plan – Bupa Global Ultimate -demonstrates that our new tiered products meet the needs of our customers and that there is demand for this level of cover. We are pleased to see that this new range of individual products is also helping to open up new opportunities to the intermediary market in the UK.”

Tim Cowan, Broker and Senior Partner at Anderson Health comments:

“The Bupa Global Ultimate plan is a market leading product. For those seeking the very highest level of cover and access to medical care at home and abroad, we do not believe there is any other product on the market that matches the Benefits and range of underwriting options provided by Ultimate, Bupa Global’s premium plan. The range of benefits included in this plan ensures that customers are provided with comprehensive cover while also receiving a first class claims service from Bupa.

“The sale of this product has set a record for the business and shows there is more scope for premium IPMI products.”
