Collinson and FBNInsurance launch international health product

UK travel, health insurance and assistance solutions provider Collinson has teamed up with Nigerian life insurer FBNInsurance to create SmartHealth International.

The product will complement local healthcare cover by providing for treatment abroad should an employee or family member develop a critical medical condition that cannot be adequately treated in Nigeria.

FBNInsurance will market SmartHealth International across Nigeria, whilst partnering with Collinson to provide international access to an extensive network of certified medical providers.

Val Ojumah, managing director and CEO of FBNInsurance, said: “We are delighted to be launching this proposition in partnership with Collinson. Our teams have collaborated to develop a unique and affordable international healthcare solution that not only caters for critical medical conditions that cannot be adequately cared for in Nigeria, but also delivers innovation locally across health insurance product design.”

Lawrence Watts, head of insurance at Collinson, added: “At a time when the demands of even the best of healthcare systems globally are under pressure, it’s vital to provide healthcare alternatives to consumers, particularly in markets where we have identified a gap between domestic and international cover.”
