Health insurance is now more affordable than ever before, with the competition between insurance providers increasingly fierce. The range of plans is vast; consequently, the range of prices is also extensive. Cheaper, less comprehensive plans start from just £7 per month, while more complex plans can be considerably more expensive. Family and couples plans are also available; these are worth considering as they can often be much cheaper in the long-run. Many people get their health insurance provided by their employer; sometimes this only includes basic treatments so it is best to check the details of the policy before you have private treatment as you may not be able to claim the money back if the treatment is not covered by the policy.
