Arthur J. Gallagher has announced a new three-year deal to provide a bespoke insurance scheme for Limbcare, a specialist charity established to support amputees and the limb-impaired.
Through Limbcare Insurance Services, Arthur J. Gallagher will offer a package of buildings and contents insurance designed specifically to cater for anyone living with a limb-related disability, with travel insurance set to follow in due course. With features and benefits tailored to meet customer requirements, the scheme will be managed by a specially trained team experienced in meeting the needs of those living with disabilities and pre-existing medical conditions.
Its comprehensive insurance for contents can cover damage to or loss of prosthetics and orthotics, mobility aids and mobile medical equipment on a new-for-old basis, while its buildings insurance can encompass stair lifts, hoists, lifts/ramps, door alterations and wet rooms in addition to standard features of a buildings policy. Buildings and contents insurance can either be purchased separately or together as a package policy.
Diane Caplehorn, Arthur J. Gallagher’s account director for Limbcare, said: “Limbcare is a very specialist charity designed to help people live a more independent life. As so many disabled people or those with pre-existing medical conditions will have found, getting competitive insurance quotations can be difficult and time-consuming, which is why we began devising specialist schemes for the charities supporting them.
“We have worked with Limbcare to tailor our product and service so that it’s aligned with what amputees and the limb-impaired really need from their insurance cover. We take pride in offering a personal service and anxiety-free experience, with our experienced team able to make prompt decisions and tailor cover.”
Ray Edwards MBE, Co-founder of Limbcare, added: “Prosthetics and mobility aids are an essential part of life for an amputee, but until now it has been almost impossible to get insurance to cover these items. With the launch of Limbcare Insurance Services not only can we ensure they are included as standard, but also provide all-important peace-of-mind. It can be very stressful if any of these items are lost, stolen or damaged but individuals can now be confident our new home insurance package will cover them for such financial loss.”
