    Explains the basic types of health insurance available.

  • Packages
    Where you have a fixed range of  individual or family medical insurance cover, with limited choice.

  • Choice of Cover
    Where you can choose to build a policy from a wide range of options.

  • Limited Cover
    Where cover is for a small number of illnesses/events.

  • Shared Risk
    Where you can drastically reduce the price by sharing the risk with the insurer.

  • Plans for the over 50's and the elderly
    Where cover is tailored for those who are aged over 50.

  • Special Cover Plans 
    Ideas and innovations that cover selected risks, or are just unusual, such as health insurance for children, convalescence care plans, hospital treatment plans and major medical expenses plans.








Do we recommend policies?

We do not recommend any particular private medical insurance product or provider. We do not make judgement as to whether or not a policy, or any feature in it, is "good" or "bad".  Neither do we suggest which policy is best suited to you. Always check out the full policy wording before buying, and carefully read any documents that the insurers provide.

Our Product Profiles are independent. They are not written, or edited by, any insurer or other provider. We do not give them ratings or stars.


We have broken down the hundreds of private medical insurance policies on offer into specific categories to help you find your way through the health insurance maze.
