FAQs

Compare Health Insurance is an independent health insurance comparison website created to help users find the best possible health insurance cover quotes for their circumstances. We work with Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) authorised brokers who search and compare medical insurance policies from the leading insurance providers for the best deals available for you.  

Our service is entirely free to use and you are under no obligation to accept any of the quotes you may receive.

Chronic conditions are severe, long-term illnesses which often do not have a cure. This means some insurance providers may only be able to cover tests and initial treatments for chronic conditions – dependent on circumstances.  

The FCA authorised brokers we work with can see what options are available for those who may have a chronic condition.

A pre-existing condition is an injury or illness which existed before you took out a health insurance policy. Whether you can get cover for this type of condition is dependent on what the condition is and its severity.  

The FCA authorised brokers we work with can help explain how a condition can affect a policy and can help you find cover options, if applicable. 

Working or taking part in sports can often lead to injury. The FCA authorised brokers we work with can help point you in the right direction, helping you find the right cover.

Cancer cover is an option offered by many different health insurance providers. Usually, it covers the cost of support, tests, drugs and treatments if a policyholder was ever to be diagnosed with cancer.

If you were to become terminally ill – some health insurance cover includes palliative care cover. If you would like this to be contained in your health insurance policy, the FCA authorised brokers we work with can help point you in the right direction, helping you find the right cover. 

As with anything, shopping around can be the best way of finding the best deals which can save you money.

This is dependent on the type of cover you have and who your provider is. Many of the health insurance providers we compare provide policy holders with access to multiple hospitals across the UK. This means their customers can choose where they are seen and treated.

In the UK we have the NHS, which entitles citizens to free health cover. Private health insurance covers you in addition to this. With private health insurance you will still need to use the NHS for emergency cover, but when it comes to treatments and diagnosis, you will have the choice to be treated privately. 

This means you will receive: 

  • Quick access to care and treatment – no waiting times
  • Access to treatments which may not be currently available via the NHS
  • More choice – choose where, when and by whom your treated by
  • Gain a second opinion, on any injury or illness
  • Have private cover, for what you want – chose a bespoke package

The FCA authorised brokers we work with can help you change your existing policy with your current provider. If you wish to change provider, they can also help you arrange this for you – without interruption to your health insurance coverage.

In the majority of cases, claiming your health insurance will not increase your premiums. A few providers have ‘no claim discounts’ – these work in a similar way to car insurance discounts – you receive an overall discount if you have not made a claim on your health insurance for a period of set time. 

Most policies have a ‘cooling offer period’ (usually 14 days from when cover begins) which entitles you to refund on your chosen policy (excluding a discount for the time you were covered). A refund may also be given for the time you have not yet been covered, if you cancel your policy before it comes to an end or before your renewal date. In some cases, an administration charge may apply.
