Blink Parametric Expands Partnership With Blue Cross

Blink Parametric Expands Partnership With Blue Cross | Fintech Finance

Blink Parametric’s longstanding relationship with Blue Cross has expanded with the announcement that the benefits provider and wellness leader Alberta Blue Cross is rolling out its flight delay service. The partnership with the Alberta-based, not-for-profit that serves more than 1.8 million Albertans through group, government and individual plans holds special significance for Blink as Blue Cross was an early adopter of the Insurtech’s real-time parametric flight disruption solution back in 2018, leading the way for digital innovation in travel insurance cover.

Commenting on the announcement, Sid Mouncey, CEO of Blink Parametric said, “this is an exciting move with Alberta Blue Cross and we are delighted to further strengthen our partnership with Blue Cross across Canada. The travel landscape has certainly changed since our first Blue Cross outing in Ontario and Québec in 2018, as real-time travel solutions have since evolved to become mainstream and must-have. All facets of air travel are certainly stretched right now and proactive insurers like Alberta Blue Cross deploying customer-centric initiatives such as our flight disruption service are making strong headway in restoring the confidence of the travelling public.”

As a platform, Blink is designed to deliver real-time solutions to customers turning negative experiences into positive ones, whilst delivering operational efficiency on processing high frequency, low severity claims for our insurance partners. Alberta Blue Cross will be offering policy holders a service whereby individuals can register for flight delay cover up to one hour ahead of their departure time to receive access to an airport lounge for a delay of three hours or more and access to a hotel room for a delay of six hours or more.

This partnership was a culmination of excellent collaboration between Alberta Blue Cross, Blink Parametric and Red Consulting, one of Canada’s leading travel insurance and medical assistance consulting companies.
