What is private medical insurance?
Private Medical Insurance is designed to cover the cost of acute medical conditions, and affords you the option of rapid access to a healthcare specialist if you require medical treatment. It allows you to avoid NHS waiting lists and receive fast consultations and private treatment for acute medical problems.
Private healthcare patients can enjoy the benefits of being treated at a facility and specialist of their choice at a time of their choosing, boosting recovery times and chances of getting through a situation with as little stress as possible. Enjoying the benefit of a private room with ensuite facilities and personalised care can be a real game changer in terms of the experience of the illness.
It can also cover extras such as Therapies, Psychiatric care, Optical and Dental Benefits , Specialist Heart and Cancer Care and Emergency Abroad. Some Specialist drugs and treatments may also be available that are not available on the NHS.
In short, it can enable you to avoid having to wait for treatment. You and your dependants can receive treatment in the UK at a time that suits you. You can be in more comfortable surroundings in a private room rather than an NHS ward and you can be treated as a private patient at a hospital and specialist of your choice. Private Medical Insurance brings peace of mind.
