Look after your health with the Best private medical insurance policies available on the market today. If you fell sick or had an accident, would you really want to wait weeks or even months for treatment on the NHS? Or would you want to be seen as soon as possible, at the time that suits you best? Our policies protect your pocket from the high costs of private healthcare, while giving you all the benefits.

Just like our other products, private medical insurance (PMI, sometimes known as health insurance) is designed to give you the peace of mind that allows you to be the absolute Best you that you can be. How does it do that, you might ask? Well, by covering your private healthcare costs so you don’t have to, it ensures that you’re seeing the Best, the quickest, and the most convenient medical care for you without leaving you worried over how you’re going to pay for it.

Say, for example, that you’d gotten sick and were concerned about how long your symptoms were lasting. If you were trying to get seen on the NHS, you might be waiting for a really long time; weeks, if not months. By that time, it’s possible that your symptoms would’ve subsided – but it’s equally possible that they would’ve gotten worse. But if you had a private medical insurance policy, you wouldn’t have to worry about that, because you could’ve made the appointment and been seen on that very same day.

But it’s not just quicker waiting times you can look forward to with private healthcare; it’s cutting-edge treatments that the NHS can’t always offer; it’s access to private rooms; it’s virtual GP services available 24/7; it’s even a wider selection of specialists, consultants, and surgeons.

Now that can sound expensive – and if you don’t have private medical insurance, it can be. But that’s what we’re for. All you have to do after setting up your policy is let us know when you’re seeking private treatment – whether that’s a simple GP appointment or a referral to a private specialist – and tell your doctor that you have PMI, and we’ll take care of everything else. You deserve the Best treatment available, so why not invest in your health?

Why Private Medical Insurance?

Even though we might prefer it if life was simple and easy, without inconvenience, the unfortunate fact of the matter is that it’s only human to fall sick or suffer an injury. According to a report published by NHS England, over 5,000 people were hospitalised with the flu in late 2022, increasing by almost 2,000 in just a week. And that’s just the flu; across the UK, about 6 million people were hospitalised for one reason or another in that same year.

But even if you didn’t wind up in hospital, you probably visited a GP, right? Maybe you caught a nasty infection and wanted antibiotics, or maybe you wanted to be referred to a specialist, or maybe you just wanted a jab. And when you went, you probably experienced some of the maddening waiting times that are just all over the news at the moment. Nearly 1 in 5 people are having to attend four or more GP appointments before getting a referral, and 92% of appointments require waits of up to 46.2 weeks!

So what’s the solution? For now, at least, we here at Best think it’s time we take the pressure off the NHS as a country, which means it’s time to give private healthcare a try. That might sound scary at first – because really, who wants to shell out hundreds of pounds when they need to be seen by a specialist? – but that’s what private medical insurance is for!

Access faster diagnoses, cutting-edge drugs and treatments not always available on the NHS, virtual GP services that are available 24/7 and much more at no extra cost with our policies today. All you need to do is tell us when you’re being seen by a doctor or referred to a specialist and we’ll take care of all the rest. That means you can go back to focussing on your health, instead of worrying about how you’re going to pay for it.

Interested in securing that kind of peace of mind for yourself? Why not give us a call today and have a chat about what exactly private medical insurance can do to help you be the Best you that you can be?
