Legal and General have partnered with Medical Screening Solutions (MSS).

Clients applying for life and/ or critical illness cover will have a blood pressure monitor sent to their home.

The coronavirus pandemic has made it much more difficult for people who require a medical screening in order to obtain insurance. This innovative addition to the application process will help Legal & General applicants apply for vital protection insurance. Therefore, removing the need to delay their tests once Coronavirus restrictions are lifted.

The equipment is simple to use, and potential clients will be able to log in to a live video chat with a Medical Screening Solutions nurse. The client will then be taken step by step through how to take their blood pressure.

The client can then keep the monitor which could assist them with their blood pressure management in the future.

Jonathan Benton, Managing Director of Medical Screening Solutions has said,

“Since October 2020, our remote screenings have allowed more than 2,000 customers to continue to complete their application and obtain cover. Adding this latest innovation supports our commitment to offering cover to as many people as possible.”

Whilst you are welcome to get a quote online, we would recommend you speak to one of our advisers.

Any quote that your adviser provides you with will take into account your circumstances and medical history, as well as your budget!

An online quote is just that – a quote – it isn’t a definite offer of cover. What really matters is the premium you are offered, after your application has been assessed.

Call Freephone 0800 644 4468 – Monday to Thursday from 09.00 to 19.00 and on Friday between 09.00 and 17.00.
