Asteron Life links up with health insurance companies

Asteron Life is giving advisers the ability to connect clients' health insurance with their Asteron personal cover, and streamline the application process.

Thursday, August 15th 2019, 7:21PM

It has approved linking forms to nib and Accuro that enable advisers to link clients' health and life information and reduce application time.

Advisers with Southern Cross agencies will be able to access health insurance quote tools within the AsteronConnect platform.

“Many customers are seeking advice on a full range of insurance products from their adviser, or wanting to package together life and health covers in one application, but getting all of their cover from one provider is not always possible or always the best solution,” said Graham Hill, executive manager life distribution at Asteron Life.

Hill said it could be time-consuming for clients who wanted life and health insurance to fill in full applications for both.

Customers will now be able to work with advisers to complete their details on AsteronConnect, and then package that information with a short linking form that has supplementary information required by Accuro and nib.

“Linking forms like this gives customers who want Asteron Life cover options for where to place their health insurance, while significantly reducing the time it takes to apply.”

Hill said that a key focus for Asteron Life was making it easier for advisers to do business with Asteron Life, while still meeting the needs of their clients, and that adding the health linking form was a small but positive step to support them.
