  3. We send you a simple application form for you or the group secretary to complete1  
  4. The business group receives a welcome call to introduce their new plan
  5. Your client receives confirmation of the switch, and their employees can start claiming on their AXA policy from day one2
  6. In most cases, we offer a two working-day onboarding3 and their employees receive a series of emails throughout the year to remind them what is and isn’t included with their health plan and the best way to get in touch with us should they need to.

  1. When your client is looking to switch, contact us and we’ll manage the process easily
  2. We’ll ask three quick “yes” or “no” medical questions about your client and send you a quote based on these answers
  3. Together with your client, you’ll complete an application form and send it back to us
  4. The application and any pre-existing conditions are reviewed
  5. We’ll let you know if your client’s initial quote is affected and what type of underwriting we can offer 
  6. Once accepted, the individual client must provide their policy certificate for the past year

“I don't find other insurers offer the flexibility that AXA provide; that their policies are very much rigid, a bit more complicated around deductibles. Hence the reason why I will recommend either switch, or the client takes that policy with AXA.”
