Groupama Healthcare becomes part of Simplyhealth

Healthcare provider Simplyhealth has completed its purchase of Groupama Healthcare. The acquisition was announced in August last year and Simplyhealth has been following the correct process through the High Court. Approval was given by the High Court on 26 April and all Groupama Healthcare policies transferred to Simplyhealth on Friday 27 April.

Jamie Wilson, Sales and Marketing Director for Simplyhealth says: "We're very excited to have completed our acquisition of Groupama Healthcare as it means we can help more people with their health. We're now the UK's fifth largest private medical insurance provider and we're pleased to be building a stronger company, while staying true to the mutual values we have followed for 140 years. The purchase, together with our acquisition of Denplan, means we now serve nearly four million people and help 20,000 businesses with their healthcare needs.
"Groupama Healthcare had built a strong reputation for customer service and this is something we are firmly committed to continuing. We will ensure that all policyholders, intermediaries and corporate clients receive the same personal service they have always had.

"The terms and conditions, benefits, and contact details that customers are used to have not changed. To make things easier for our intermediary colleagues we have transferred EasyAdmin to the Simplyhealth website so they can amend details of policies that were formerly with Groupama Healthcare. We will be launching similar online capability for all our policies very soon."

Santé by Groupama Healthcare is now named Santé by Simplyhealth and is still available for quotations and renewals. It's hoped that a new private medical insurance product will be able for quotations in the Autumn. This will include the best aspects of both Santé by Simplyhealth and Preferential, Simplyhealth's existing comprehensive private medical insurance plans.
