Health Cover

With so many demands on the NHS, it can be difficult to receive a quick diagnosis and there are times when you just can’t afford to wait for an operation. That’s why our Health Cover policy could make all the difference. With waiting lists for NHS consultants and surgery growing, we can give you prompt access to a private hospital near you.

Our Health Cover policy provides faster access to a range of in-patient and day-patient treatments and operations, including a selection of heart and cancer treatments. You will have £1million cover available each policy year. In addition, it also provides for three minor operations carried out as out-patient treatment.

    • Diagnostic tests to help find the cause of your symptoms
    • Minor surgery for carpal tunnel decompression, joint injections, and excision and cauterisation procedures
    • Diagnosis of heart and cancer conditions
    • Private hospital in-patient and day-patient treatment
    • Follow-up consultation within six months of covered treatment 
    • Follow-up therapies
    • Medical appliances and prostheses
    • Hospital accommodation
    • Extensive range of heart and cancer treatments

Your excess options

Should you need to claim an excess is an optional amount that you can choose to pay towards the cost of treatment in any policy year. This can be beneficial if you want to keep down the price you pay for your private medical insurance. Your premiums will be lower the higher the excess you choose. Or you might decide that you would rather not pay an excess and that is one of our options too.

The three excess options are:

No excess£100£250

Private hospitals – extended list

You have a wide choice of hospitals you can use, depending on the premium you want to pay.

The standard hospitals option excludes treatments at the following UK private hospitals: please click here

The extended hospitals option includes treatment at any UK private hospital, including those hospitals listed in the above pop up. Your premium will be higher as a result.

You will choose either the standard hospitals option or extended hospitals option when you first take out a policy and you will be given the option to change your choice at each five-year renewal.
