Nigerian life insurer and a member of the SANLAM group, FBNInsurance, has sealed a pact with Collinson, a global leader in travel international health insurance, to initiate SmartHealth International.
Both firms have teamed up with the design of SmartHealth International, which will deliver a suite of new affordable health insurance products targeting Nigerian employers.
SmartHealth International is designed to complement local healthcare by providing cover for treatment abroad should an employee or family member develop a critical medical condition that cannot be adequately handled in Nigeria.
With a national presence in strategic geographical locations across the country, FBNInsurance will market SmartHealth International across Nigeria, whilst partnering with Collinson to leverage its in-house international insurance and assistance expertise to provide international access to an extensive network of Collinson certified medical providers.
SmartHealth International is an affordable solution for the treatment of complex and critical care treatments.
The proposition has been designed to cater for specific critical complex medical events such as cancer and those requiring renal, orthopaedic and neurosurgery as well as serious trauma injuries sustained in road traffic accidents.
