What is health insurance and is it worth it?

Having private health insurance means that if you develop a problem with your health, you’ll be able to get a prompt diagnosis and receive treatment quickly. Following a GP referral, where necessary, using your private medical insurance to access tests or scans can help you get results more quickly.

Depending on your plan, you’ll be able to have eligible treatment as an out-patient, day-patient and in-patient, at a time and place of your choosing. Health insurance gives you freedom and flexibility.

If you do need a hospital stay, you’ll usually have a private room with all the mod-cons so you can rest up and get better in comfort. There are usually more flexible visiting hours and free car parking so your friends and family can generally visit any time.
