How we can help you find health cover
We will research what is available for you on the market, including many deals which are not generally available in the market. We will take into consideration the following options:-
Do you want out-patient cover? Most policies include in-patient tests and surgery but not all include out-patient consultations and treatment.
Do you need cover when abroad? Whilst abroad treatment can be provided, many health insurance schemes do not include it as standard.
Do you want to be able to choose where to be treated? Different policies offer differing lists of hospitals and clinics – including specialist centres – from which you can choose to be treated. Or would you be happy to be seen at a local hospital recommended by your insurer?W
Which benefits are most important to you? Options may include physiotherapy, psychiatric, chiropractic, optical, specialist cancer and cardiac care.
How much can you afford? Clearly there’s a strong correlation between the level of cover provided and its cost.
Would you be willing to contribute to the cost of your care? By agreeing a policy excess you may be able to secure a lower premium.
Would you like the 6 week deferred option? This reduces the premium as a consequence of a required treatment being available on the NHS within a six week period then you must use NHS.
