Why should I get Private Medical Insurance?
06 April, 2020
Private Medical Insurance (PMI) is designed to pay for private treatment for new, acute, short-term health conditions. It can help remove unnecessary worry at a stressful time, leaving you to focus on your recovery.
According to the House of Commons, waiting lists for treatments in NHS hospitals have risen to record levels. The proportion waiting less than 18 weeks is at its lowest level in a decade.
The AF Healthcare Scheme, provided by Aviva and administered by Alan Boswell Group, can save you a lengthy wait to see an NHS doctor. Thanks to Digital GP, you can speak to a healthcare professional from the comfort of your own home, at a time that’s convenient for you.
Personalise your policy
AF Healthcare can help tailor a policy to meet your individual needs by choosing benefits that suit your circumstances and budget. For example, you can choose to include full outpatient cover or you can have a limit in place to keep the costs down.
From Aviva’s comprehensive list, you decide which hospitals you’d like to include too, even those based in central London. You can add mental health cover, as well as dental and optical. Dental and optical can cover you for surgical procedures and some routine treatments.
You can chose your own excess, payable once per policy year, ranging from £0-£1000. And, as you’d expect, the higher your excess, the lower your premium.
Exclusive AF Group discount
If you’re part of a group that’s looking to transfer into the scheme from another insurer, we guarantee to beat your current renewal price by up to 10%. For this, you must meet the necessary requirements.
Join over 3,000 members already part of the AF Healthcare scheme.
