Problem

More than 14 million working days are lost each year to a reproductive health concern – they can be some of the toughest and longest health journeys we face. But traditional insurers won’t cover them. In the UK, one in three women suffer from reproductive or gynaecological issues, while one in four men experience low testosterone by age 30.

Solution

Juniper addresses a gap in health insurance by providing comprehensive genital insurance for all genders, ensuring easy access for companies and their employees. By better understanding this underrepresented segment of the market they are building an MGA structure to offer reproductive health insurance in a similar way to employee dental insurance.

Ambra Zhang, Co-founder at Juniper

“When Juniper asked us to imagine dental insurance, but for your genitals, it opened our eyes to a substantial market that has largely been ignored by traditional insurance. Juniper is removing the stigma surrounding reproductive health issues and enabling employers to offer comprehensive care for their female and male employees. We are delighted to join them on this journey.”
