Question ID: 297041
Can you please provide me with a list of insurance underwriters (or
underwriting syndicates) that underwrite international health
insurance policies? (Ideally based in Europe or the USA).


International Health Insurance allows the insured person to spend up
to a maximum annual sum on medical treatment at any hospital or
medical centre in the world.


Examples of such companies that sell this type of insurance are;


These companies are known as "brokers" (i.e. they sell policies to the public).


These policies are sold only after an agreement has been reached with
an insurance "underwriter". It is the underwriter's responsibility to
pay the broker if a claim is made by the insured person.


There are a number of underwriting bodies (such as Lloyds of London)
where syndicates of underwriters operate. Most of them specialise in
specific types of insurance (such as marine or motor vehicle).


We are therefore seeking a list of insurance underwriters that
underwrite international insurance policies. (i.e. underwrite policies
for some of the above listed brokers).


A list of five or more underwriters would be sufficient. I believe
that Lloyds of London does have a syndicate that underwrites such
policies and I would like to know which one it is.

Hello josh_robb:

It was a pleasure to answer this question. Sometimes, researchers
stumble upon a great webpage that is similar to striking gold. While,
researching for your question, I found a very reputable Healthcare
Insurance consultant who rate International health insurance

The result being that I didn?t have to look for the quality
international health insurance underwriters because I had the perfect
source at my disposal. I will also discuss the syndicate for Lloyd?s
of London at the end.

The Multinational Health Insurance Consultants rate one of the best
international healthcare insurance providers. The Feb. 2003 ratings
can be viewed a this page:

They have Interglobal and IHI Denmark as 2nd and 3rd respectively. As
you have their website, I am providing you the websites of other top
performers. They follow:

William Russell Ltd
>>> (Please note that the website of William Russell Ltd was down at
the time I checked).

Health Care International

Integra Global

Good Health

International Medical Group


Multinational Underwriters Inc.

Bupa International



You also asked for the syndicate of Lloyd?s of London. Well! It is
Multinational Underwriters Inc. It is evident by the heading on their
main page. Also you may access the following pages to verify:

Global Insurance

I hope this will help. Please let me know if you seek more information
or don?t feel satisfied with the answer. I will be obliged to help
