When things are going well, being your own boss is great. But when sickness strikes it can feel as though no one’s got your back. There’s probably no one who can do your job for you, so not only are you suffering, you also face a potential loss in earnings.
With our sickness insurance cover for the self employed, you’ll have someone on your side helping you get diagnosed and treated quickly, so you can get back to running your business.
Our self employed sickness insurance means you won’t have to worry about delays and waiting lists. We’ve got a Fast Track Appointments service so you’ll see a specialist quickly. And if you need treatment we can book you in at a time that suits you. We’ll then make sure you’re as comfortable as possible in a private hospital or the private wing of an NHS hospital.
Because everyone is different, our self employed sickness insurance is really flexible. You can build cover that’s right for you and your business, and there are also lots of ways you can manage your costs – so it might be cheaper than you think.
