Shopping for Health Insurance in the UK

Residents of the United Kingdom may spend a lot of time deriding the NHS and complaining about the waiting time for non-urgent procedures but the fact of the matter is that if you are taken seriously ill then you can look forward to being treated for free by some of the best doctors in the world. However, if you have no desire to share a hospital ward with dozens of other patients or you are fussy about the location, you may well find that private medical cover gives you more options.

How much it will cost depends on what you want covered, your age and fitness levels. Any existing conditions also need to be declared when requesting a quote as these may affect the cost of your policy. Failure to disclose information that later turns out to be important may result in your policy being invalidated, so your omission could cost you a lot of money. Assuming that you are honest when obtaining quotations it should be safe to assume that the health insurance prices you are quoted are an accurate representation of how much it will cost you to purchase a policy.

Once you have narrowed the choice down to those products that you can realistically afford it is time to check the terms and conditions of each one, to ensure that they provide you with the level of cover that you require. You could do this before comparing prices but doing it this way round means that you will not waste any time reading about policies that you cannot afford. If you have a shortlist of companies that sell the cover you are looking for at competitive prices the next thing you can do is check online reviews to see if other people have experienced any problems with the companies that you are considering.

Most insurers operate in a fair and transparent manner but it is best to make sure that you do not pick one that has a history of trying to delay payouts or doing their best to avoid paying out altogether. You can visit each company’s site to check out their prices, terms and conditions or if you are pressed for time, you could contact a broker and let them do all the hard work instead.
