121 HEALTHCARE has launched a website to offer an independent online information and brokering service in a sales-free zone.

The site finds star ratings for more than 100 different healthcare policies and instant quotes based on age and circumstances. It gives background knowledge on how private medical insurance works, what private healthcare is available, how to apply for it, how to claim and what provision there is for company medical insurance, for example. For more details on any policy, users can email to receive literature from by the relevant policy provider.

Director Trevor Dumbleton said : “It does all the legwork for you in researching, analysing and comparing the vast raft of policies that are available.”

The site can be found at 121healthcare.com.
