The Savvy Brits Flocking to Private Health Insurance

Story by Wendy Anderson. July 2024 - 5 min read Advertorial

Unfortunately, the pressure on our beloved NHS continues to rise.

Recent figures Icon citation show that more than 7 million people are waiting for treatment. Sadly, over 300,000 patients face delays of more than 1 year.

Most Brits love the NHS and have always thought that by paying their national insurance contributions, the service would be there to help them if they fall ill.

However, despite a plan to reduce waiting times, the size of the backlog means this is no easy task.

Faced with the possibility of long delays, people are turning to private health insurance as their healthcare safety net.

Paying a health insurance contribution each month can give you access to private medical treatments if you become Ill.

Thankfully, there are now several private healthcare companies competing against each other in the UK, so it should be possible to compare quotes and get an affordable insurance plan.

There are several reasons why people are choosing to purchase private health insurance.

The good news is that a basic insurance policy should already cover the cost of treatment for many common illnesses.

This is likely to include cancer, heart disease, and stroke aftercare. Surgeries and medications for pain issues and digestive conditions should also be included.

Depending on your budget, it might be better to personalise a plan to ensure you get affordable cover for your needs.

💡One of the most effective ways to do this is by contacting a health insurance broker and requesting a free no-obligation quote.
