Schools' Testimonials

As an administrator for a large international school, I have many demands on my time. AQIA has been of great assistance in providing policy comparisons, arranging quotations from different companies, and keeping me abreast of new developments in the field and this has allowed me to focus upon the decision-making. Furthermore, it is reassuring to know that this critically important area is being monitored by someone whose full time job it is to make sure our teachers have proper health coverage.

I have known Luke Whitehead for a number of years and our school has been a very satisfied customer. The insurance industry is subject to major changes and they are not always happy ones for the customer, but Luke has always provided accurate and honest information and advice, facilitating changing providers as well as renewing contracts with the same provider, in order to best meet our needs as a school.

Working as the CFO of the Business side of the school, but with a high concern for the health and protection of our ex-pat and local foreign teaching staff, I am very particular in whom I place trust with our medical insurance cover. Luke Whitehead has proved time and time again to have the customers’ interests foremost in his mind, and works extremely hard to ensure we achieve the correct balance between quality cover and competitive pricing. I trust his research, judgment, and dedication to the international school sector.

AQIA came highly recommended by other international schools and the reputation has proven to be accurate. We are happy that Luke Whitehead is handling our insurance. He knows various programs very well, has an excellent relationship with our staff and his core focus in on providing the best for insurance for international schools. Luke also realizes the importance of being open, direct and honest, and focuses solely on insurance. I have not hesitated at all when referring him to other schools.

Our school allows teachers to choose any healthcare they want. We have been using AQIA for a number of years now to establish mini-groups within the school, so that staff can then have the benefits of group coverage tailored to suit their own individual needs. We have found the service to be efficient, comprehensive and reliable. We are very happy to recommend their services to any school.

What I appreciate most about Luke Whitehead’s service is that he accurately sees all sides to the story, from the employer, employees’ and the insurance companies’ points of view, effectively working towards a win-win situation for all. He is always open to new ideas while keeping in mind the needs of the group and I particularly appreciate the time taken mind the needs of the group and I particularly appreciate the time taken to research and explain various policies in detail. His advice has always been objective and the response to any inquiries prompt and exact.
