What Is Health Insurance?

You never know when an unexpected illness or injury might strike. That’s where private health insurance comes in - it’s your safety net to get medical care quickly without worrying about huge bills.

In the UK, we all have access to free healthcare through the NHS. But private medical cover gives you even more options! It allows you to:

Get treated at private hospitals and see private medical specialists.

Often get seen way faster than NHS wait times.

Access medications and private healthcare treatments not available on the NHS.

There are several types of private policies in the UK - ranging from basic cover to comprehensive. Entry level plans may not offer any outpatient allowance, or force you to utilize the NHS if you could be seen quickly. Comprehensive policies will normally come with unlimited outpatient, daypatient and inpatient allowance. Cancer cover will usually be extensive, it may even cover additional options like therapies and mental health. You can also specify your hospital access lists with most providers - which will reduce/increase the overall cost. Make sure to ask which facilities you can use on the proposed policy before committing to the plan. 

What Does Private Health Insurance Cover?

With most private medical insurance plans, you’ll enjoy:

Inpatient diagnostic tests and surgical treatment.

Outpatient consultations, diagnostics and follow-up care.

Specialised physiotherapy services.

Critical illness coverage for serious health conditions like cancer.

Virtual or in-person diagnostic tests with GPs.

Radio/Chemotherapy treatments from cancer specialists, with drugs often not available on the NHS.

What Private Health Insurance Does Not Cover

While our policies aim to provide comprehensive private medical coverage, some exclusions and limitations typically apply under policies. However, exact exclusions can vary depending on the plan you choose, so be sure to review carefully.

Common exclusions found in many UK private health insurance policies may include:

Any pre-existing or chronic conditions you had before purchasing a plan, unless agreed in writing.

Certain cosmetic treatments like LASIK, tummy tucks, etc. (medically necessary may be covered).

Specific policy limitations and UK underwriting clauses outlined in plan details.

Don’t worry - our advisors will walk you through all the terms and limitations. Together, we’ll customise the perfect private medical insurance for YOUR needs!

Key Considerations When Choosing or Switching Providers

With so many private health insurers available in the UK, it’s critical to do your research. Here are some important factors to consider:

Hospital & Consultant Choice

What private facilities and doctor networks are included in the policy? More choices equals better access to treatment.

Policy Cost Value

Is the premium worth it for the level of cover provided? Avoid overpaying for services you don’t need.

Customer Satisfaction

Check independent review sites and ratings to gauge an insurer’s customer service reputation.

Cover Comparison

Carefully review and compare policy documents side-by-side to assess exclusions, limits and out-of-pocket costs.

Healthcare Needs

Consider any specific treatment requirements your household may have both now and in the future.

If already insured, understand how to smoothly transition your cover between providers when needed.
