Freedom Essentials

Cost-conscious health insurance that provides a fixed cash benefit to get treated in the UK or abroad.

Freedom Essentials Health Insurance

Freedom Essentials health insurance is designed to help cost-conscious people get a good level of health insurance cover. Freedom Essentials gives your clients a fixed cash benefit for eligible inpatient and day-patient treatment which they can use to get treated privately in the UK or abroad as a self-pay patient. If they decide to use the NHS instead, 50% of the cash benefit will be paid to spend however they want.

Freedom Essentials Core Cover

Freedom Essentials Core Cover

With no annual limit, the Freedom Essentials core cover provides a fixed cash benefit based on the average cost of medical services, towards the cost of eligible inpatient and day-patient treatment. The fixed cash benefit is paid straight to your client so they can arrange the treatment directly with the hospital under a self-pay contract.

See the Policy Summary

Freedom Essentials core cover includes:

  • Inpatient and day-patient treatment

Your clients can choose any hospital in the UK or abroad and arrange treatment directly with the facility. If the treatment cost is less than the cash benefit received, the difference can be kept. If it’s more, your client will be responsible for any shortfall.

  • Cancer cash benefit

Freedom Essentials offers a fixed cash benefit equal to 50% of the fixed cash benefit available under the inpatient and day-patient benefit for active cancer treatment. On top of this, we also pay £150 for each session of chemotherapy or radiotherapy as part of a course of active cancer treatment.

  • NHS cash benefit

If your client chooses to get inpatient or day-patient treatment under the NHS instead of going to a private hospital, we will pay 50% of the fixed cash benefit otherwise paid by the policy. Please see the Freedom Essentials Brochure for more information.

Cover for pregnancy complications, dental surgical procedure and MRI, CT and PET scans are also included in the Freedom Essentials core cover.
