Leaving your company scheme?
Call us today on 0808 231 2974^ to discuss your options
You should usually have a choice of whether to stay enrolled in your company health insurance scheme, but you will need to check the terms before cancelling your existing policy to see when you can leave and whether there will be any penalties for doing so.
You will need to check the terms of your employee contract for the agreed details around your company health insurance, and whether there is a variation clause which would allow your employer to make changes. Any changes should generally follow a fair procedure, giving you enough notice to arrange alternative cover.
Your employee contract should state how long you will be covered under your company health insurance scheme. We may be able to continue your cover under a personal policy if you contact us within three months of leaving your company scheme. Just give us a call on 0808 250 9343 to discuss your options.
^ We may record or monitor our calls. Lines are open Monday to Friday 8am to 8pm and Saturday 9am to 12.30pm.
† Direct Access telephone services are available as long as the symptoms are covered under the policy. If your cover excludes conditions you had before your policy started, we’ll ask you to provide evidence from your GP that your symptoms are not pre-existing for a period of up to two years from policy start date (or five years in the case of mental health) before we can refer you to a consultant or therapist through the Direct Access service. For rolling moratorium underwritten members we will ask for evidence each time you claim for a condition not claimed for before. Always call us first to check your eligibility.
