Health-on-Line now allows parents to benefit from reduced rates for their children, until they are 25 years old. Health-on-Line recently revised its ruling surrounding the upper age limit for including dependants on their parent’s private medical insurance policy, and now offers dependant rates up to the age of 25.
Mike Dalby of Health-on-Line explains: “We have reviewed our approach to family and child only policies to make it easier for parents to look after their children’s wellbeing with health insurance. We had previously included children up to the age of 21, or 24 if they were in full time education. We have now modified our policies so that parents can keep their children on their policies up to the age of 25, provided they are not married. This change in age restrictions will allow older dependants to access the benefits private medical insurance offer at a much lower premium. We see a constant demand from parents concerned with the NHS and wishing to protect their children, through health insurance. This recent change means parents can insure their older dependants for 50% less than if they had a separate policy of their own. This obviously makes private health insurance more affordable.”
