Private Medical Insurance can affect outcomes by giving speedy access to diagnostic tests and to a wider range of treatments, such as specialist cancer drugs and specialist services, than are available under the NHS.
With regard to benefit design, in addition to the normal Core benefits of Specialist Consultations, Diagnostics, Cancer Cover and Hospital Treatment, most insurers offer the option of tailoring the scheme to suit budgetary requirements.
Cover can be enhanced by including benefits such as Mental Health Treatment, Complementary Medicine and additional benefits such as Private GP Services, Dental, Optical and Travel Cover.
Many now include added value services such as Health & Wellbeing Offers, Gym Discounts, Virtual GP Services, Telephone Support from Specialist Heart or Cancer Nurses and Second Medical Opinions.
Premiums can be reduced by selecting a Policy Excess and restricting benefits, hospital access or benefit levels.
