What is it?
Private Medical Insurance is an insurance policy that will improve your medical experience. This policy will provide you with the best medical care in the private sector. It was created to cover the costs of healthcare for medical conditions that occur after your policy has started. Your policy usually covers you for a lot, this can include medical bills, all tests you would require, operations, consultation fees, overnight stays, cancer medication (some policies can include medication that is not available to the NHS), mental health treatment and many more!
How does it work?
If you were in need of medical assistance, you can contact your provider though different means such as an app, a call etc. They will then help you proceed with getting fast appointments with your local GP, skipping the waiting list. If you are required more treatment, you would then be referred to private hospitals for the accurate medical treatment. If you require an overnight stay, again this would be in the private hospital. All costs are covered by your policy.
