medical screening

If you're not already familiar with the TAMIS® medical screening system, you may be interested in what Travel and Medical has to offer underwriters. The TAMIS® system has been designed to be operated by non-medically trained staff in a call centre environment and permits an evaluation of the medical risk for travel. Our bespoke software facilitates a structured interview process and provides an immediate decision of cover, taking the scheme underwriting criteria into account; for example an additional premium, an increased excess or a combination of the two. The process is typically completed with 6 - 7 minutes and can handle the three main policy types; Single Trip, Annual Multi-Trip and Long Stay Travel Insurance. The screening decision is fully documented for the client which can be sent by email or via first-class post.

Saving Insurers Time, Money and Promoting Efficiency

Underwriters can retain full control of the screening results via the scheme configuration which can be reviewed and amended at any point by the dedicated team at Travel and Medical Insurance Services Ltd. The system boasts an extremely flexible approach and also incorporates an automatic audit trail. The automated process eliminates the time, cost and inconsistency of manual screening and reduces the need to obtain expensive medical reports. The process of operating an objective screening assessment also minimises liability under the Disability Discrimination Act. TAMIS® is web enabled, allowing Insurers, Claim Handlers and Assistance Companies easy access to secure data via a web browser, in order to validate cover on-line 24/7, 365 days a year.

Compiled by Experts
