Affordable family health care insurance for you & your children

Why choose health insurance for children & partners ? 

Family private health care plans can provide cover for you, your spouse or partner and your children and can be a cheaper health insurance option than choosing individual plans.

The age limit for children depends on the health insurer you choose. Some state 21 or 25 whilst others provide cover until the child leaves full timehealth insurance for children education, so do compare family health insurance plans available to ensure you choose the most appropriate one for you.

As mentioned, your cover will depend on whether you choose one of the more low cost health insurance options or a more comprehensive plan but would typically include some or all of the following:

  • Quicker referral and treatment times avoiding lengthy NHS queues
  • Access to leading specialists and consultants, arranged at a time to suit you and your family
  • Your choice of hospital
  • Use of private hospitals with ensuite facilities, tvs and good food; plus the option for families to stay the night if children are being treated
  • No restriction on viewing times
  • Access to drugs and treatments that may not be regularly available on the NHS

You can tailor the health cover to suit your needs and budget but with such a wide selection of plans available, it is important to compare so you can be sure of choosing the best family private health insurance for you; which is where we can help.

The cheapest family health insurance may not necessarily be the one that suits your needs – equally you may not need all the bells and whistles of a comprehensive health insurance plan, so our specialist team at Hannah Insurance Services are on hand to talk you through your options and make recommendations for you on the best way forward.

How does family private medical insurance work?

How you use your family private health insurance will depend on what is included in the plan but essentially it works like this:  

  • You and or your child visit your GP
  • GP refers you to a private specialist
  • You have a private consultation
  • Your private consultant carries out tests
  • You receive private treatment
  • You stay in a private hospital if required

Of course if this relates to your child then you can be with them every step of the way.

Some more basic plans may not include the initial consultation, just the treatment so in this instance you would use the NHS in the usual manner and then the health insurance would kick in when the actual treatment is arranged.

How much does family health insurance cost?

The cost of family private health insurance in the UK depends on a number of factors, similar to life insurance the insurer will want to know who you are wanting to cover and yours and their medical history and lifestyle, for example ages and whether anyone smokes. When looking at Health Insurance for children too, the number of people included in the plan will also affect the price.

There are ways to reduce your healthcare costs, for example you can:

  • Choose a more basic plan that only covers the actual treatment rather than the diagnosis
  • Pay a higher excess on any claim
  • Opt for a "6 week wait option" - which means that you agree to be an inpatient under the NHS if their waiting list is less than 6 weeks.
  • Only have access to a restricted number of private hospitals

Some family health insurance UK providers also offer discounts.

This is where taking advice from a medical insurance expert could save you a lot of time comparing and shopping around as they will do all of this for you. They will work to your budget and needs and review the whole market to find a family private health care plan to suit you all.
