Health Insurance FAQs

What is health insurance?

Health insurance is a type of insurance policy which covers the cost of private medical treatment which is needed to treat new acute medical conditions which first arise after the start of the policy. An acute medical condition is a disease, illness, or injury which comes on suddenly and without warning, unexpectedly causing pain or discomfort or other outward physical symptoms.

How does private health insurance work?

All you need to do is choose the right health insurance policy for you (depending on the health benefits you would like) and decide whether you would like to pay monthly or annually. 

If you become ill or suffer from an acute condition, you should visit your GP who will be able to refer you to a specialist for diagnosis or for further tests. At this stage, you need to get in touch with your health insurance provider if you want to get private medical treatment under your health insurance plan. 

What benefits will I have with your health insurance plans?

  • You can save on annual payments - we love to reward loyal customers, which is why we offer a 6% discount for annual health insurance policy payments. 
  • We operate a quick turnaround - usually, it won’t take more than 2 working days (5 for company policies) to set up your health insurance policy after your initial quote, so you can get the cover you want when you need it.
  • We won’t charge you more for living in or around major cities.
  • We won the Customer Service 'Above & Beyond' award at the Cover Awards 2023, showcasing our dedication for providing excellent customer service.
