Cheap health insurance UK plans

When searching for cheap health insurance you will notice that there are three main types of medical insurance plans in the UK.

Budget health insurance policies

These are the most affordable health insurance plans but offer the lowest level of cover. Because they are the cheapest health insurance, you may only be covered for inpatient treatment. Outpatient treatments like tests and scans are usually excluded from these policies.

Mid-range health insurance policies

Mid-range policies are also a type of low cost health insurance, but offer more cover than budget policies. They will usually meet the cost of inpatient treatment and outpatient treatments up to a certain financial limit. Whilst mid-range policies are not as affordable as budget policies, many people still find them to be cheap health insurance plans.

Comprehensive health insurance policies

Comprehensive policies are the most expensive type of health insurance policy but offer cover for inpatient, outpatient and day patient treatment as well as additional extras. Although this may not be the cheapest health insurance, having comprehensive health insurance gives peace of mind that many people find invaluable.

Tailored health insurance policies

Not all health insurance plans will fit into these three categories, and many providers now offer policies that can be adapted to suit every budget. ActiveQuote allows you to tailor your quotes online so you can find the perfect low cost health insurance plan.

Discount schemes for cheap health cover

When looking for affordable health insurance, cost should not be the only deciding factor, because cheap medical insurance may not provide adequate cover for your needs. However, there are a variety of discount schemes available that can turn an expensive plan into something more affordable without sacrificing on quality.

Excess: One way of finding cheap health insurance UK is by adding an excess to your policy. With an excess you agree to pay a fixed sum of money towards a claim. This is an easy way to create low cost health insurance, and will not affect the cover.

Reduced hospital list: A reduced hospital list means you will not pay for access to hospitals you don’t need. Cheap medical insurance policies often exclude premium London hospitals.

Six week option: A six week option means that you will never have to wait more than six weeks for treatment, but you may receive treatment on the NHS. A six week option is a popular way of achieving a cheap health insurance price.

You can use as many of these discounts as you need to create a cheap medical insurance plan that fits your budget. All of these schemes are designed to make cheap health insurance accessible to everyone, without sacrificing on the basic cover.
