What is Private Medical Insurance?

Private medical insurance is designed to cover the cost of treatment in private hospitals for medical conditions that are curable. It's a great way to skip the lengthy NHS waiting lists to ensure you are seen and treated at the right time. Plans cover the cost of either inpatient or outpatient treatment, which can be reassuring during your recovery. The cover can be varied to suit your budget and, here at Howden, we can guide you through the options you need to consider before taking or switching your plan.

Nowadays, private medical insurance is much more flexible too, allowing anyone to select from a range of different cover types. We help facilitate clients in the following areas:

  • Individual insurance – cover for an individual and their family based in the UK.
  • International insurance – providing cover for individuals and their families, outside of their usual country of residence.
  • Leaving an employer scheme – reviewing your options to maintain cover, following retirement or ceasing of a company policy.

We have access to a range of insurance companies specialising in private medical insurance, and our expert Life & Health team are experienced in helping people like you select a plan that fits your personal circumstances and your budget.
