Is there anything more important in life than your health and wellbeing? Health Insurance allows you to prioritise your health and be proactive about protecting it. It provides affordable access to private healthcare, offering the latest and best treatments and medicines, with minimum delay and in superior comfort.
But how do you find the right policy for you? The range of insurers and policies available is extensive, each with different options, benefits and tiers of cover. Policies can be extremely comprehensive, including cover for things like alternative therapies, optical and dental cover; or they can be more low-cost and basic, covering in-patient treatment for major illnesses such as cancer. Most insurers offer additional benefits such as Digital GPs and health support which also need comparing. Hospital lists also need to be kept in mind as some can be better or more convenient than others in your area.
In short, the choices can be confusing and the options overwhelming. Making a direct comparison can be difficult, without a thorough understanding of the product.
Which is why our expert advisers are so popular and our service is so well valued by our customers. An adviser can make the whole process straightforward; finding you the best policy, at the best price. They can explain all the confusing small print and answer all the questions you are likely to have.
But what makes our expert advisers so good?
Each of our advisers go through our rigorous internal training course over a period of four weeks, ending with a tough exam. Our advisers’ knowledge is regularly tested, and they are continuously updated with any product changes to ensure their understanding and advice is exceptional. All our advisers are based locally at our various UK call centers and relate easily and professionally with clients. We only employ exceptional individuals who genuinely care about what they do and go above and beyond as standard.

There are three different options you can choose: Essential, Countrywide and Extended Hospital Lists. Essential lists tend to help lower your premium and covers you to stay in NHS private patient units along with your local private hospitals. The Countrywide list extends the coverage of the Essential list, giving you access to private hospitals and clinics. The Extended list gives you access to the widest access including London private hospitals.
As a nation we are fortunate to have a publicly funded health service, giving everyone access to treatment at little to no cost. Due to increasing pressure on the NHS, many people now face long waiting lists and delayed or cancelled treatment.Whilst receiving private treatment you will not face long waiting lists for treatment, in fact you are likely to be seen within a week or so. Health Insurance offers you access to a choice of hospitals and treatment times that suit you, with overnight stays often being in a private room. More on the NHS and Private Medical Insurance here.
Health Insurance gives you access to the latest cancer treatment, as well as medication and procedures that don’t tend to be obtainable on the NHS. Private cancer care is intended to make your treatment as comfortable as possible by making chemotherapy at home an option, along with home nursing.
Long NHS waiting lists and cancelled or delayed procedures are a common motivation for initial enquiries into Health Insurance. Depending on the condition, it is unlikely it will be covered on your plan. Although, if you have a pre-existing condition speak to one of our expert advisors as different underwriting options may suit your needs.
