Leading price comparison website MoneySuperMarket has chosen ActiveQuote to power its health insurance comparison service for consumers. This marks the second time that MoneySuperMarket has chosen to work with ActiveQuote, following the launch of its income protection insurance channel last year.
The new service launched this month and enables MoneySuperMarket customers to compare health insurance policies from a wide range of leading insurers and is designed to give the UK population greater access to health insurance.
Rob Saunders, CEO at ActiveQuote, said on the deal: “We are so pleased that MoneySuperMarket has opted to partner with ActiveQuote again, this time on their health insurance channel. The team at ActiveQuote continue to work hard to build an innovative service that provides a simple way for consumers to compare insurance products across the market.
“We are incredibly proud to have another product available via a comparison site that’s as well-established and reputable as MoneySuperMarket. This is a huge boost for ActiveQuote and will create in excess of 40 jobs across all our departments as we look to grow in 2020.”
The partnership is expected to bring in tens of thousands of customers a year, who will be able to use the comparison technology completely free of charge.
Sean Thompson, Commercial Performance Manager at MoneySuperMarket, said: “Since the launch of our partnership with ActiveQuote last year, we have helped over 7,000 customers protect their outgoings.
“We’re really excited to expand our partnership into Private Health Insurance, giving us the opportunity to help more customers find cover for their private healthcare and Get Money Calm.”
