Medical Insurance Company

Find a medical insurance company…

If you are looking for to ensure that you will be treated satisfactorily in the event of injury or illness, you need to find yourself a medical insurance company willing to provide you with a quote for one of their medical insurance policies.

If you are interested in taking control of your healthcare, then a private medical insurance policy could be what you are looking for.  These policies are designed to cover the costs of medical treatments for ‘acute conditions’. Such conditions are generally defined by medical insurance companies as illnesses, diseases or injuries that are likely to respond well to treatment and leave your health restored to the state it was prior to the illness, disease or injury, or lead you to a full recovery.

This essentially means that most pre-existing conditions or long term illnesses will not be insured by the average medical insurance company. The product comparison table below will give you a good idea of what policies are available, and getting medical insurance quotes is as simple as clicking on the links.

Broadly speaking, the main features offered by a medical insurance company will be:


  • Reassurance that, should you become ill or be injured, you would have access to readily available and efficient treatments
  • The ability to choose when and where you might have any medical treatments, as well as which specialist may carry these out
  • Access to comfortable, private en-suite rooms in high-quality hospitals
  • However, every medical insurance company will vary in what they offer as a part of their insurance policies, so it may be worth you looking around at different companies and products to see which might be the most suitable for you

Here is an overview of how medical insurance typically works:


  • Medical treatment usually begins with a referral by your GP to an appropriate specialist
  • Before any such treatment takes place, it is a good idea to contact your insurer to confirm that they will cover any costs
  • During the course of any treatment, it is best practise to stay in touch with your insurer at each stage for confirmation that you are still covered
  • Treatments for conditions that you have suffered from prior to the policy term are not generally covered by medical insurance.
