How does private health insurance work?

Health insurance works alongside the services provided by the NHS. Once your cover is in place it takes just a few simple steps to get private care if you think something is wrong.

  1. Visit your GP if you suspect something is wrong.
  2. Let your GP know you have health insurance
  3. If you need to see a specialist, private healthcare can be arranged.
  4. Make a claim with your insurer who will arrange payment for your treatment.

Health insurance covers acute medical conditions that can be treated. Cover can include consultations, surgery, nursing and private hospital recovery. Policies can vary in their level of cover and you can tailor your insurance to meet your budget and needs.

Examples of other benefits that can be included in health insurance are physiotherapy, cancer care and access to drugs and treatments not always available on the NHS. Emergency medical treatment is not covered by private health insurance plans.
