What are the benefits of health insurance?

The most important thing to do is shop around and compare health insurance quotes so you can be confident of getting the best level of cover for your money.

Types of health insurance

Health care Plans do vary but most insurers offer a range of basic, standard and comprehensive policies.  Most plans cover the cost of staying in a private hospital but the more comprehensive private healthcare policies also include consultation fees, tests, treatment and aftercare therapy. The following table explains this in more detail:

Quite simply the more you pay each month, the more cover your private health insurance will provide; it is therefore important to think about how much you want to pay and the level of cover you require.

Ways to reduce the cost

Once you have decided on the level of private medical insurance you want, there are usually a number of options available for you to tweak the cover which can also reduce the amount you pay each month.

For example you can:


  • Agree to pay an excess meaning that you pay part of every claim. The more excess you pay, the lower your premium 

  • Agree to be treated by the NHS if the treatment can take place within a specified amount of time (e.g. 6 weeks)

  • Agree to pay a proportion of the full treatment costs, e.g. 25%. The higher the percentage you agree to pay, the lower your premium 

  • Agree to be treated by a selected number of private hospitals. This may mean you travel further but could reduce the amount you pay overall

Also some health insurance providers reduce payments through your ‘no claims bonus’ and a few offer additional discounts for people who live healthier lifestyles.
