UniMed picks up book of business

After 40 years a friendly society has decided to exit the health insurance sector.

Friday, July 1st 2022, 4:41PM

Health insurer UniMed is taking over Manchester Unity’s health insurance 1300-strong customer base, following the decision by Manchester Unity that it would cease offering health insurance services.

After 40 years of delivering health and sickness insurance products, Manchester Unity signalled that it would be refocusing its business activities to concentrate on investment and membership services.

In the months since, the organisation has assessed suitable providers to take on their health insurance customers.

“It was important that we found an organisation that was genuinely committed to our Members’ health and wellbeing needs and shared our membership philosophy and values,” Manchester Unity chief executive Sanjiv Jetly said.

“UniMed was an obvious choice to take on our membership, as a financially strong, long-serving non-profit member-society that is underpinned by its core values, and that prides itself on personalised care and service.”

UniMed chief executive, Louise Zacest, said “we are delighted to provide Manchester Unity Members continuity of cover and support them with their ongoing health and wellbeing needs.”

“At UniMed, our vision is that more New Zealanders have better access to better health and wellbeing, and this is an exciting time to be welcoming new members to our organisation. We look forward to further enhancing the great products and services that members can benefit from throughout 2022 and beyond.”
