Take a look at our overview of health cash plans. It will help you to decide what kind of plan you need. We also cover the different types of health cash plan available.

 

Package plans

Health cash plans providing a package of benefits are listed on the right. Select a plan to view details of what is offered.

 

Providing a pre-set package of benefits and limits keeps costs down for insurers and makes it easier for customers to buy a product. Insurers use their knowledge to decide what is best for the average person or family. A particular package may or may not be the best solution for you.

 

A packaged policy means that you have no choice on what covers or benefits you can include or exclude. Most insurers offer a range of benefit levels to suit different budgets. There are limits on amounts that can be claimed by £, % and number of days.

Most health cash plans include cash benefits towards hospital in-patient treatment, specialist consultations, routine optical and dental treatment, physiotherapy, complementary medicine and maternity amongst others. Some offer more specialised benefits that may be tailored towards your particular needs such as benefits for illness at home, aftercare and home help.
