Grandparents can now help protect the health of their grandchildren by buying insurance tailored to children and their more common ailments.
The move by Aviva to allow grandparents to take out specialist health insurance for their grandchildren comes following evidence of the increased role they are taking in the lives and care of their children's children.
Grandparents can buy Child Health Solutions, giving their grandchildren access to diagnosis and cover for treatment at private facilities for an affordable fixed premium. The cover includes dentistry, physiotherapy and speech therapy. Assistance to help parents finance sundries such as travel expenses and parking costs if their child has to stay in hospital is available.
Available via a simple quote and apply facility through specialist insurance broker Sure Insurance Services' Childsure.
