Are you over 50? Worried that you won’t be covered for medical insurance? You are not alone; there are 4.41 million people in the UK who are over 50 years old.
With increased pressure on the NHS many over 50s would like the reassurance of knowing that personalised health care is available on-demand, without long stressful waits for an appointment. It’s clear to see why 500,000 of people over 50 have taken now out a private health insurance policy.
Private medical insurance ensures a peace of mind for when the time comes to seek medical advice or treatment. It’s true that people are living longer and healthier lives than ever, but with age there is an increasing likelihood that some type of medical care will be required.
Private medical insurance will bring many benefits such as:
- peace of mind should the time come to call on medical experts,
- specialists in all medical fields,
- a high quality of expert care should you be admitted into hospital,
- comfortable surroundings,
- short waiting lists (even none for certain procedures).
Being over 50 is no barrier to having health insurance, and there are a number of different options and providers to choose from. It’s important to find the appropriate level of cover for your circumstances and, of course, at a budget you are happy with.
Our advisors can talk through all the options so you can consider each of them and choose the ideal level of cover for your particular circumstances.
