By taking out private health insurance you can rest assured that depending on your cover, you will be treated in private facilities should the need arise, and often avoid NHS waiting times.
Private health insurance offers you the opportunity to access fast, efficient healthcare with high standards and flexibility to fit around your own lifestyle. With a private plan you can choose not just when you'll be seen, but where and even how you'll be treated, including access to medicines and treatments that aren't available through the NHS. All of these benefits depend upon the policy you’ve selected – to suit your needs and budget.
How it works
If you're covered by a private health insurance policy and your GP refers you for treatment, this will be processed through your insurance provider to make sure you're receiving the correct treatment in good time.
All you'll need to do is contact your health insurer to check that you're eligible for cover for the treatment you need. They'll be able to take you through the options available to you, and help you determine which available services you want to make use of.
Navigating a private healthcare plan can be tricky, especially if you're only used to the NHS. Our agents will help you take charge of your healthcare, offering information every step of the way to make sure you understand exactly what your options are.Get a quote
