Private Medical Insurance

Private medical policies can help you financially with the cost of private healthcare


What is Private Medical Insurance?

Private Medical Insurance (or PMI for short) is an insurance policy that can help with the costs of private healthcare, including diagnosis and medical treatment.

By paying a monthly premium, if you develop an acute health condition that begins after your policy has started, private medical insurance could cover some, or even all, of the costs associated with it’s treatment.

Private Medical Insurance could mean you can get access to medical services or treatment quicker, with the level of cover you could receive being dependent on your selected policy options.

What are the Key Features of Private Medical Insurance?

When it comes to Private Medical Insurance, unlike with the other protection insurances we advise on, we do not undertake ‘whole of market’ research. Instead, we have selected Aviva as our single PMI Provider.
