Health Shield – the leading health cash plan provider – has clinched four high-profile nominations at the prestigious Health Insurance Awards 2013.
The non-profit making Friendly Society has been shortlisted for ‘Best Cash Plan Provider’ at the highly-respected awards, as well as ‘Health Insurance Company of the Year’, ‘Best Use of Marketing to Intermediaries’ and ‘Best Customer Service by a Provider’. The awards, hosted by Health Insurance & Protection magazine, recognise and reward excellence among intermediary and provider businesses in the UK health insurance and protection industry.
Jonathan Burton, Chief Executive at Health Shield, commented: “It is a real honour to once again be counted amongst the industry’s finest. 2013 has been a year of continued growth and development at Health Shield, as we strive to achieve our aim of providing affordable healthcare to the widest possible community. This recognition by Health Insurance & Protection magazine is a true testament to our commitment to realising this ambitious goal.”
He added: “We’re particularly proud to be nominated in the ‘Health Insurance Company of the Year’ category for the third year running, as well as being recognised for customer service and how we communicate and interact with intermediaries. These are essential components of our mission and vision to attract and retain members, while building a strong future for the Society.”
The award nominations come just weeks after the health cash plan provider was shortlisted for ‘Healthcare and Wellbeing Provider of the Year’ at the Workplace Savings and Benefits Awards 2013.
The Health Insurance Awards will be held on 17 October at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, London.
