Why choose UniMed?

Unlike some health insurers we are not particularly well known. That’s because we prefer to focus on looking after our group schemes and members rather than talking about what we do.

We are privileged to manage more than 400 employer group schemes covering over 40,000 staff and family members. We respect that our customers have a choice, so we are committed to providing many good reasons to choose UniMed.

It’s easy to switch

Make the transition to UniMed

For employers who have an existing scheme we make the transition easy. Your Account Manager can discuss exactly how this could work for your scheme and we have a team in place ready to run this process for you. To make the transition easy, we can offer “no worse underwriting terms” so that your employees do not lose cover for medical conditions they are already aware of or have experienced.
