Health Insurance

Private health insurance offers you and your family quick access to specialist treatment, often at the hospital of your choice and without the need for lengthy waiting lists. Most people buy private health insurance to:

  • Have reassurance that medical treatment is available quickly should they become ill or injured;
  • Have choice over when the treatment takes place, at which hospital and the specialist who treats them;
  • Recover in the privacy of an en-suite room with their own TV and other home comforts.

Compare health insurance quotes online in under two minutes, including quotes from the leading UK private medical insurance providers to find the best health insurance policy for your budget. You can view up to 50 online medical insurance quotes tailored to your requirements, helping you buy the affordable private health insurance for you and your family.

How does Private Medical Insurance work?

Medical Insurance policies are paid for on a monthly or annual basis and are designed to complement the services provided by the NHS. After you buy health insurance it takes just a few simple steps to arrange for private healthcare if you suspect something is wrong with your health:

  1. Visit your GP and tell them you have a private health insurance policy.
  2. If your GP needs to refer you to a specialist or hospital they can arrange for you to see a leading specialist or consultant more quickly.
  3. Inform your medical insurance company that you want to make a claim and they will confirm your cover and provide the go-ahead.

Emergency medical treatment is not covered by private healthcare insurance plans.
