At the same time, under this agreement, Generali will continue to market its own health offerings through its network of mediators as it has done to date. Generali’s customers will also benefit from access to the highest standards of health management with Sanitas as well as new digital advantages in the field of care, with improved video consultation services, and in the procedures associated with the provision of medical and hospital services such as reimbursements, authorisation or medical reports.

In addition, the agreement will also allow the two companies to collaborate to generate synergies and improve the customer experience with personalised services that respond to their needs.
Villa, said “The agreement with Sanitas will enable us to reinforce our commitment to our customers by giving them access to and assistance from one of the best healthcare networks in the world. It also represents a value-added offer for our brokers, who will be able to offer health insurance throughout Spain thanks to the breadth of Sanitas’ network of health professionals and hospitals.”

This agreement brings more accurate, personalized and preventive medicine, in other words, more human medicine, to all Generali customers.”
