Healix selects Surely’s Broker Portal platform

The Healix Group (www.healix.com) has been providing healthcare and risk management solutions to clients around the world since 1992, offering bespoke services to clients who want control over their health, travel and risk provision. With offices in the UK, USA, Australia, New Zealand, Kenya, Singapore, Spain and Greece, the company has extensive experience in international medicine, aviation medical care and emergency evacuations.

Healix Insurance Services (HIS) is a modern health and travel insurance underwriting agency, that specialises in bespoke build schemes and binding authorities, enriched by sophisticated underwriting and data analytics, and supported by Lloyds of London and international company markets. A challenger brand in health insurance, Healix provides a fresh alternative to the health insurance products that are traditionally available, with innovative affordable products aimed at the mass market of customers who do not currently buy traditional PMI cover.

To support this activity, Healix needed a modern digital platform to facilitate the distribution of this product range, and after a review of various market offerings, Healix selected Surely’s Broker Portal as their strategic platform for their Managing General Agency (MGA) business. The solution offers a fully online workflow for Brokers, Group Secretaries, Members and Underwriters, with straight-through processing supported by electronic signature technology and full branding customisation per Broker. The platform also offers future capabilities for AI-based underwriting.

Phil Denman, Managing Director of HIS, said: “The £4bn UK health insurance market is being awoken by a new breed of products that are affordable, innovative and attractive to a broad audience. We can work with any type of seller, client base, channel or existing partnership structure.  Digitally driven, with a flexibility of approach to suit the modern distributor, we are open-minded and look to complement NHS services to deliver unrivalled value for all stakeholders. Our new platform offers a cutting-edge digital interface, supported on all devices, with the ability to analyse and utilise data in innovative ways. We are delighted to be working with the team at Surely, with their advanced digital and insurance expertise, their agility and energy, and their creative approach to disrupting traditional markets.”
