Private health insurance gives you access to eligible health treatment when you need it. From seeing a specialist for diagnosis to having a comfortable private hospital stay, we’re there to look after your health and wellbeing. We offer a range of levels of cover and premiums to best suit everyone's specific needs.
Private health insurance covers you for all the benefits of private healthcare without the worry of how to pay for your treatment. You pay regular premiums, and if covered under your plan your treatment will be covered.
We offer different levels of cover to choose from. For example if you want to be covered for consultations with a specialist, you'll need to select the outpatient option. Our members can choose a private hospital from our Directory of Hospitals at a time and place convenient to them. This means they can put all their energy into getting better, knowing the rest is taken care of.
Personal Health, our private health insurance plan provides covers for the things that matter to you. As standard, we cover a wide range of treatment, including cancer, CT or MRI scans if you need to spend time in hospital on specialist referral. You can then choose to add levels of cover to suit your needs. If you'd like to be covered for diagnostics and specialist consultations you'll need to take out our out-patient option. We do not cover out-patient drugs.
With our heart and cancer cover and care, you’ll be covered for radiotherapy and chemotherapy. You’ll also have access to a dedicated nurse helpline to help with healthcare concerns about the condition, treatment and care options. You can talk to us any time, day or night, so you’ll never have to find your way on your own.
When life throws you an unexpected challenge, fast diagnosis and treatment are what matter most, along with genuine help, support and understanding from people who care. So here’s a summary of everything that comes with Personal Health, your private medical insurance plan, for new medical conditions after you join.
