for consumers

Who Are We?
Although this website is designed for insurance companies and underwriters, you may be interested in knowing a little more about Travel and Medical Insurance Services and the TAMIS® system. But how or why would you come into contact with us?

When you are buying a travel insurance policy, you will almost certainly find that it requires you to make a health declaration. On most policies, if you have certain pre-existing medical conditions or have had specific medical treatment within the last 12 months, you will be required to contact a medical screening line.

Travel and Medical provide the medical screening service or risk assessment on behalf of a number of well known companies, so you may well find yourself calling us. By identifying the risk at the point of sale, Travel and Medical can establish whether any additional premium is necessary.

Complete Peace of Mind
For many medical conditions, the additional premium will be negligible, but importantly, the use of TAMIS® ensures that if you have been screened and approved, you will have total peace of mind when you travel abroad. The process is quick and simple, involving a series of questions that require yes/no answers.

TAMIS® is widely regarded as the best risk management system in the insurance industry. For consumers, it is set to become established as a 'kite mark' for fair assessment and guarantee of service. So, to ensure that you receive the best service and the fairest assessment, make certain that the travel insurance policy you buy has the TAMIS® mark.
