Health insurance Updated:
Private medical insurance, or PMI, is sometimes thought of as only being reserved for a particularly affluent few. A lot of consumers overlook it and don't want the outlay to eat into their budget, but really, it could be a small price to pay to protect your health.
PMI can give peace of mind that, should the worst happen and your health start to suffer, you won't need to wait long to get the treatment you need. In many cases going through the NHS can mean long waiting lists – a length of time that could be unbearable if you're suffering. Opting for private treatment means those lists will usually be far shorter, with diagnostic tests and any necessary treatment being administered swiftly and professionally.
It can also give you valuable peace of mind to know that, not only is your health covered, but so is your wallet. The cost of private treatment can quickly add up, but with a suitable level of cover there's no need to worry about the outlay.
