Confused about how to get the best deal to cover your health? From affordable insurance to combining private and NHS treatments, Moneywise has put together a guide to your private health options.
These days health insurers want to be seen as healthcare providers, not just providers of financial services. A tie up with a gym makes sense; the healthier you are the less likely it is you will make a claim.
However, AXA PPP healthcare is not the first to do this. Other health insurance providers offer discounts towards gym memberships as well.
- Vitality Health offers 50% off monthly membership of Virgin Active gyms – a joining fee does however apply.
- Aviva offers up to 25% off a choice of leading health clubs around the UK.
Private medical insurance
PMI allows you to skip the NHS waiting list and arrange treatment at a time you choose. With most PMI policies, you pay a monthly premium (the older you are, generally the higher premium) and the policy will then pay out, up to specified cover limits and after an agreed excess, for any treatment you might need. Not all conditions are covered by PMI and you get what you pay for: the more cover you want, the higher your premium will be.
A property chain is a line of buyers and sellers (the “links”) who are all simultaneously involved in linked property transactions. When one transaction falls through – for instance, someone can’t get a mortgage or simply withdraws their property from sale, the entire chain breaks and all the transactions are held up or even fail entirely.
