Waiting for surgery can be a stressful time with waiting lists getting longer and an escalation in the number of cancellations for planned and elective surgical procedures.
Increased waiting times can cause more stress and anxiety and the possibility of a worsening of your condition. You may, therefore, be unable to work for an extended period and suffer a loss of earnings.
Westfield Health’s hospital treatment insurance gives you peace of mind and can bypass potentially lengthy NHS waiting lists by opting to be treated privately under their cover.
This type of insurance typically covers most surgical procedures except those for treating cancer and heart conditions (which are prioritised by the NHS), and may also include an allowance for outpatient treatment and additional physiotherapy. Pre-existing conditions are unlikely to be covered, unless there hasn’t been any treatment or symptoms for a predefined period of time.
With the unlikelihood of NHS waiting lists getting shorter in the near future, the ability to use an insurance policy to opt for private treatment means that you will be back on your feet far sooner.
Furthermore the Westfield Health Hospital Treatment plan does not attract the higher costs of traditional private medical insurance policies due to the level of cover.
Hospital treatment insurance is a unique cover for individuals and its provider, Westfield Health are a not for profit organisation established nearly a century ago.
