A new corporate partnership!

We are delighted to announce a new Corporate Partner for IAL.

Hospital and Medical Care Association (HMCA) are offering exclusive private medical benefit for association members.

HMCA was established over 40 years’ ago and has grown to be one of the most successful membership benefit providers in the UK. HMCA membership is also one of the most exclusive as their plans are only available to the members of trade, professional and membership groups. HMCA has worked with over 1000 associations including professional and trade groups and member societies.

No cost membership benefits – can you afford not to?

HMCA arranges affordable health plans including Private Medical, Cash Plan, Income Protection, Dental, and Travel. You will not see HMCA advertising to the general public and this means they can arrange comprehensive and flexible plans that are great value for money. The plans are offered exclusively to associations and HMCA pays a 5% sponsorship fee for each plan subscribed to, which can help generate an additional revenue stream for your association.

HMCA understands the need for sound and effective membership benefits and offers a professional and personal service to you and your members. HMCA works in a transparent and straight forward way with your association to ensure that your members are aware of the benefits on offer and will discuss a marketing strategy that suits you. There is no cost to the association and all of the plans are offered on a voluntary and optional basis.

Comprehensive cover HMCA’s products are designed to cover all aspect of healthcare as well as eliminate the concerns about money that many people have when they fall ill. These include a choice of three medical plans that can also include family members; income protection to ensure you can keep up with your financial commitments should you find yourself off work due to injury or illness; a hospital cash plan offering generous payments worth £225 (tax free) every day you have to stay in hospital; and a dental plan covering everything from routine examinations and hygiene work to primary treatment for cancer of the mouth and gums.

Generally, HMCA's healthcare plans require no medical examination before being accepted onto a plan, offer worldwide cover and have no age restriction.

Private healthcare removes the anxiety that long waiting times for NHS tests and treatment can cause. It does not prevent you from using NHS GP and emergency services, but it does give you the peace of mind that comes from knowing that in the event you fall ill you will be diagnosed and treated in the quickest possible time.
