The History of AXA Health

AXA PPP healthcare, or the London Associates as it was originally known, was conceived in 1938 as a health insurance scheme for middle income earners in London. In 1961, the name was changed to Private Patients Plan and by 1970 the member-base had grown to 367,000.

In the 1970s and 1980s the Company launched a number of ground-breaking initiatives including a Family Masterplan, Private Hospital Plan and Retirement Health Plan. In 1998 the Company was acquired by GRE, which was then acquired by Sun Life & Provincial Holdings (part of the AXA Group). Whilst on the acquisition trail AXA Group purchased the leading provider of occupational health services, Medical Industrial Services Ltd, which was re-branded AXA PPP Healthcare Occupational Health Services.

2001 saw the Company launch Commonsense, a packaged health and safety and occupational health product. To reflect this new ownership in 2002, it was renamed AXA PPP healthcare. As of October 2020, AXA’s health insurance (AXA PPP healthcare and Health-on-Line) and employee health and well-being support (Health Services/ICAS-UK) united to form AXA Health.
