What is health insurance?
Health insurance is an insurance policy that covers the costs of private healthcare, from diagnosis to medical treatment. You will pay a monthly subscription that covers all or some of the cost of treatment for acute conditions that develop after your health insurance policy has begun.
You may take out private health insurance because it gives you quick access to medical treatment. The level of cover you get will depend on the policy you take out. We have two different levels of private health insurance: Comprehensive, and Treatment and Care.
