Wouldn’t it be nice if you could afford to be taken care of in a private hospital with plenty of staff on hand and state of the art facilities?
It might surprise you to know that private medical insurance costs could be lower than you think. With the range of incentives now offered by medical insurance companies, your monthly premiums could be substantially reduced. Furthermore, with the extensive range of insurance policies that we have on offer, you can select the cover that suits you at a price you can afford.
Here are some of the advantages of taking out a low cost private health insurance plan:
- You can be fast tracked for treatment and avoid NHS waiting lists
- There are plenty of staff on hand to ensure a superior level of care
- You can choose to be treated at a place and time that suits you
- There are no restrictions on visiting times
- You will be cared for in a comfortable private room with first-rate facilities
- Standards of hygiene are excellent so you don’t have to worry about superbugs
- You will be allocated your own highly qualified medical consultant or specialist
- Receive expert care for specific illnesses such as cancer
When you become ill the last thing you need is to worry over whether you will receive adequate care. So it’s well worth investing a few pounds a month to give you peace of mind at a time when you need it most.
Nowadays there are so many policies to choose from. There are policies that pay for medical costs in the event of acute illness, policies that ensure a regular income if you are not fit to work or those that pay for regular medical treatments such as dentists or optician’s fees.
Although treatment is widely available through the NHS, the National Health Service is becoming increasingly stretched financially. Public money has to be ploughed into the NHS to maintain high standards of care. This means that if the Government cut back on public expenditure, waiting lists will get longer. Additionally, staff numbers will decrease and standards of care and cleanliness will be reduced.
By investing in a private health insurance plan you are ensuring quality care for you and your family in the event of ill health. What’s more, you will be treated in comfortable surroundings with your own private facilities.
Starting costs for basic private health cover are surprisingly low. This is because most companies start with a Core policy to provide the most necessary forms of cover. You can then choose from options to add to your cover depending on your preferences and your budget. You can also choose the level of cover to suit you.
Increased competition from insurers means that there are also many discounts available. This means that private health is now more widely available to the general public and not just the wealthy.
These vary slightly amongst different health insurance providers, but they generally cover:
- Private in-patient treatment
- CT, MRT and PET scans
A few standard insurance policies also cover cancer treatments and accommodation for parents of sick children. However, some companies do not cover cancer at all whereas others cover it as an optional extra.
