Full cover for inpatient and day-patient treatment
We will pay all eligible specialist charges in full when you are admitted to a hospital as long as the fees are charged in line with our schedule of procedures. If the fee charged is greater than the amount we pay, you will be responsible for paying the shortfall directly to the specialist.
Hospital fees will also be paid in full for all inpatient and day-patient treatment, as long as your chosen hospital is on the hospital list within your level of cover. If you decide to use a hospital outside the approved list, we will only pay 50% of the costs and you will be responsible for settling the difference directly with the hospital.
Comprehensive cancer cover
All our Freedom Elite plans include comprehensive cancer cover which pays for eligible costs associated with cancer from the initial specialist consultations and diagnostic tests (when the optional outpatient cover is taken) to active cancer treatment such as surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy.

MRI, CT and PET scans
We will pay the costs charged by a hospital or an approved diagnostic imaging centre for MRI, CT and PET scans in full when you have been referred by a specialist.

We will cover in full, for up to 13 weeks, the costs associated with home nursing immediately following inpatient and day-patient treatment that was covered by the policy.
Private road ambulance
If you need private inpatient or day-patient treatment and you need to be medically supervised during the journey between your home and the hospital or between two hospitals, we will pay the fee charged for a private road ambulance in full.
NHS cash benefit
If you choose to get treatment through the NHS (rather than at a private hospital), you can claim £200 for every night spent in an NHS hospital as an inpatient or £100 for every day spent in an NHS hospital as a day-patient.
