Westfield Health launches new online health cover


Health365, a new trading name of Westfield Health, is a new online health insurance product only available direct, offering simple, quick and affordable health cover from just £15 per month.


It enables you, in less than five minutes and in just a few clicks, to choose the health cover that best suits your needs, with less of the hassle often associated with health insurance applications.


Health365 has been developed to offer flexible cover. It provides healthcare benefits that can be used every day as well as cover for unexpected healthcare costs for more serious issues. It is primarily targeted at those who do not currently have any health cover, but who want to take more control of their health. The new brand is an innovative competitively priced online product


Westfield Health launched the brand after extensive independent market research. Findings suggested that 96 per cent of those questioned would be happy to purchase their health cover online and 40 per cent used to have private medical insurance and miss the extra security it provided. Health365 will directly target professional couples, individuals and families.


Jill Davies of Westfield Health says, “Health365 is certain to revolutionise the health insurance industry in the UK.Until now, people could choose to have a health cash plan and/or private medical insurance. Health365 offers you a flexible alternative. We use video to explain the cover clearly and simply.”


Health365 offers four modules of health cover. You must choose ‘Core Health Cover’ plus at least one other module from ‘Scanning and Screening’, ‘Consultation’ and ‘Surgery Choices’. Core Health Cover enables you to claim back everyday health costs including optical bills, dental fees, therapy treatments (physiotherapy, acupuncture, osteopathy and chiropractic treatment) and fixed cash payouts for nights spent in hospital. The module provides two levels of cover – Min or Max. The Scanning and Screening module provides speedy access to state-of-the-art MRI, CT and PET scanning facilities and provides money back towards the cost of health screening. Consultation allows fast access to private consultants and enables you to cover the cost of consultations, diagnostic tests and treatment. Surgery Choices provides cover for up to 60 non-urgent surgical procedures including operations for knee problems and hernias.
