What is couples' health insurance?

Couples’ health insurance can cover you and your partner under one policy, giving you fast access to specialist treatment and around-the-clock advice and support. You will pay a monthly subscription that covers the cost of any treatment either of you need, for conditions that develop after your policy has begun.
