Private Medical Insurance / Cover is often seen as an expensive luxury, however it can be very reasonably priced and can mean that at a time of worry you have access to medical consultants without having to wait for the NHS.
Private Medical Insurance (PMI) covers the cost of private medical treatment and can often offer better quality facilities as well as significantly shorter waiting times. Receiving the treatment you need promptly can also mean you are able to get back to full fitness much quicker, and then get back to work. Prestige Financial Solutions are able to offer this cover and would be happy to provide a quotation for this as part of our protection review.
Private medical insurance is designed to provide you with additional security and peace of mind when it comes to receiving healthcare. In this country we are lucky enough to have a National Health Service that provides medical attention that is free at the point of delivery, however many people still opt for private treatment because of the benefits that it has to offer.
BENEFITS OF PRIVATE MEDICAL INSURANCE / PMI
Private medical treatment offers a few things that the NHS cannot, one the main things that private care can normally guarantee is a shorter waiting time than the NHS. This is due to the fact that private medical practices do not generally have long waiting lists. This means that you can often guarantee yourself a more rapid response to whatever illness it is that you may have.
If you opt for private medical insurance you should also be able to have a say in which hospital and with which consultant you receive your treatment. This is often one of the most attractive features of choosing this option as it allows you to choose the treatment location that is most convenient to you and your family members, along with choosing medical professionals that you are most comfortable with.
One of the other benefits that private medical insurance can offer its policy holders is the fact that you will normally be provided with your own private room as opposed to a shared ward. In addition to this you will normally be able to benefit from the privacy of an en suite bathroom as opposed to a shared one. Many patients prefer this as it affords them privacy at a time when they are at their most vulnerable and allows them peace and quiet when they are trying to recover.
