We believe, just like you, that having a happy & healthy family is important. At AXA Health we want your journey with any illness to be as stress-free as possible. And we have been helping people get better for over 80 years. 

Take care of your family with our family healthcare cover

Free cover for new arrivals

When your baby arrives, you’ll feel reassured to know your little one has cover on your health insurance plan too – there may be some restrictions however. Just give us a quick call to share your news and cover for your new-born will be free until your renewal date (limits to cover may apply).

Extra cancer cover
A helping hand in the early days

Being a new parent is a joyful but daunting time. Even if you’ve had a baby before, it can be hard to know if everything’s as it should be. With family health insurance you’ll have a fully trained midwife to call when you need reassurance.** They’ll check how everything’s going with you and your baby, and help you adjust to your vital new role (normal birthing not covered)

Cover for your young ones

Children have unique concerns. Things like prominent ears or a birthmark on their face can really affect who they are – and who they become. With family cover you can get things like these sorted out before they become a bigger problem. 

Hospital bed
Accommodation when your child’s in hospital

Being away from home can be a worrying time for children, especially when their stay is in hospital. We make it easier for you to be near your child while they receive treatment covered by your health insurance. We’ll pay for one parent to stay with them in hospital, and up to £100 a night towards accommodation for another in a nearby hotel (up to £500 a year).

Answers when you need them

We understand that you want answers you can trust as quickly as possible. So we give you easy access to a wealth of health information online. Our knowledgeable team are available 24/7, so if you ever have a question regarding you or your family’s health, they’ll be there to help. They can even send you written information and give you a follow-up call if you have any further questions. It’s a bit like having a medical expert in the family.
