AXA has taken action to make sure it can continue to offer international health insurance policies post‑Brexit.

Although details of the UK’s exit from the European Union (EU) are still unclear, AXA’s plan to make sure it can continue to contract with clients in Europe, and cover EEA residents is progressing well.

We’ve recently opened a third intermediary subsidiary to join the AXA – Global Healthcare group of companies. AXA Global Healthcare (EU) Limited will (subject to regulatory authorisation) become our hub for arranging European business from early next year, complementing our Asian hub in Hong Kong and head office in the UK.

In readiness for a potential ‘hard’ or ‘no deal’ Brexit, the AXA international health insurance policies we arrange and administer, were updated in March this year. This update ensures customers resident in the EEA, can be transferred to an AXA insurer in the EU, should it become necessary.

Our priority is to make sure our individual and business customers experience minimal disruption as a result of any changes which may be needed. They will continue to benefit from the global customer service experience they’re familiar with and we’ll let them know about any actions we many need to take, as the outcome of Brexit negotiations becomes clearer.
