Aviva’s individual private medical insurance, Healthier Solutions, has recently achieved a 5 Star Rating for its comprehensive level of cover. The rating has been awarded by independent financial research company Defaqto.
The maximum Defaqto 5 Star Rating follows the introduction of a range of additional benefits and enhancements for Healthier Solutions earlier this year, including a unique cancer pledge, demonstrating Aviva’s commitment to offering market leading health products that meet customers’ needs.
Defaqto is an independent financial research company specialising in ratings, comparing and analysing financial products, including insurance. Star Ratings from one to five, where 5 Stars is the highest, are awarded following analysis and comparison of products based on the features and benefits they offer. The ratings are designed to help intermediaries and customers identify, at a glance, where products sit in the market.
Nicola Graham, head of commercial and proposition development at Aviva Health, said: “This is a fantastic endorsement from an independent financial research company that Healthier Solutions is one of the most comprehensive private medical insurance products available in the market.
“We continually look to improve our health insurance products to keep up with medical advances and provide customers with improved cover and greater flexibility, while endeavouring to make private medical insurance more affordable. With the Defaqto 5 Star Rating, customers and their intermediaries can now be confident that Healthier Solutions is one of the best products available.”
