Health insurance (also known as private medical insurance) is all about peace of mind and the comfort of knowing you will get treatment you require, when you need it and at the best possible hospitals.
Healthcare insurance is designed to cover the costs of private medical treatment for what are commonly known as acute conditions (disease, illness or injury that is likely to respond quickly to treatment). It will also cover the cost of surgery, medical specialists and consultants, accommodation and nursing for treatment at either a private hospital or private ward of an NHS hospital. As a private patient you can often choose when you and who treats you and at which hospital. You will usually have the privacy of an en-suite room complete with television and other home comforts.
Traditionally, healthcare insurance was seen as a luxury item for the wealthy but this is not the case nowadays. There are policies available to suit most needs and budgets; after all, don't you deserve to be well cared for and without delay?
