Insuring our health should be at the top of the agenda, yet with so many options to choose from, it can often be difficult to know where to start. Well, we're here to help – we've just announced the private medical insurance policies that have been awarded a Moneyfacts Star Rating of four or five, helping you narrow down the options and choose a policy that's got your health covered.
The Moneyfacts Private Medical Insurance Star Ratings is a brand new category that's been designed to help you make an informed decision when it comes to this important form of health insurance. Thanks to detailed analysis of the range of products out there, you can choose, with confidence, the Star-Rated policy that best suits your needs in terms of ongoing quality.
These ratings are based on the weighting of the most relevant product features, outside of premiums, which means you can be confident that the policy of your choice will offer all the protection you require. After all, it isn't all about price – you need to be sure that the policy really is high quality and will be there for you should you need it, and with these independent seals of approval, you can have that extra degree of confidence.
"Private medical insurance is a highly valuable financial product, providing an individual with the peace of mind that their health and wellbeing needs will be met," said Richard Eagling, editor of Investment Life & Pensions Moneyfacts.
"However, the range of products and the variety of entry levels on offer can prove confusing for many individuals who could benefit from this type of cover. The Moneyfacts Private Medical Insurance Star Ratings help customers direct their focus and make an informed decision, by highlighting the most comprehensive products on the market."
