Westfield Health acquires PatientChoice

Health cash plan provider Westfield Health has acquired PatientChoice, which administers, markets and sells health insurance products.

The acquisition will see Westfield Health assume sole responsibility of Surgery Choices, an add-on module to Westfield’s corporate paid plans that cover policyholders for more than 60 surgical procedures normally classed by the NHS as non-urgent.

PatientChoice has administered the Surgery Choices product since its launch in 2007.

Jill Davies, chief executive of Westfield Health, said: “The acquisition of PatientChoice is an exciting development and a natural progression for Westfield Health. It is extremely positive news for our policyholders and stakeholders.

“When Westfield launched Surgery Choices it was considered a bold move by the market and has been extremely well received since.

“The product has proved popular with intermediaries, employers and employees, and the acquisition of PatientChoice further strengthens Westfield’s commitment to delivering innovative and relevant health cover.”
