Legal & General Network has adopted Bupa as a strategic partner so that Legal & General advisers can offer medical insurance to their clients.
Legal & General will be able to sell Bupa’s ClientChoice product, which offers a no-claims discount and moratorium underwriting in the same product. Bupa ClientChoice offers three levels of cover and different underwriting options.
Gary Burchett, managing director of housing at Legal & General, said: “We’re really pleased to be teaming up with a company of Bupa’s quality and expertise. Legal & General’s network currently offers mortgages and mortgage-related insurance and this move allows us to broaden our proposition even further. It’s a natural next step to allow advisers to sell medical insurance and there are significant opportunities here for intermediaries to expand their revenue streams. A new product like this is the perfect excuse for advisers to talk to existing customers and can open doors. It also means a more complete service for consumers.””
