Should you get health insurance and can you make a serious injury claim in Wiltshire?
Health insurance is often something that comes as standard with your employment contract, especially if you work for a bigger company. However, even if you don’t get it as part of your job, it may still be worthwhile you looking into getting it, even if you live in the UK and thus are able to get free healthcare under the NHS.
In countries where you have to pay for any medical attention that you get, health insurance is something that almost everybody has, whilst in the UK it is more of a choice, as you will always be able to get the treatment you want for free, as soon as you need it. Here are some of the reasons that you might choose to get health insurance anyway.
- If you want to get private healthcare. For many people, the NHS is more than enough for them, providing free treatment as and when they need it, but for others it doesn’t provide the level of care that they would like. If you would simply feel more comfortable with a private doctor treating you, then this is a great reason to get health insurance.
- If you have an existing condition. Obviously this will have to be taken into account when you apply for your insurance, but if you are suffering from an existing medical condition, you will probably have to see doctors more than other people might, meaning that health insurance may be able to help you.
- If you want private dentist or optician services. Health insurance will cover you for every aspect of healthcare, including dentist and optician services, which you would normally have to pay for. If you feel that paying the insurance premium would be more cost effective than paying for these appointments, health insurance may come in very handy.
- If you are unhappy with your currentctor. It is quite normal to be unhappy with the level of care you can get from your local NHS doctor. A private doctor may be better for you in this case.
