Protect Yourself with Health Insurance

by Polly N on November 22, 2012

Being diagnosed with any illness or disease can be downright scary, especially when you don’t have the right medical care to ensure you receive the correct treatment. Before I was diagnosed with cancer aged 24, I was fortunate to have signed up to the health insurance company associated with the company I was working for at the time who have continued to care for me since.

The danger of not protecting yourself with health insurance is that you may not be able to get cover once you are diagnosed with something and even if you are able to get it, it may come at a premium. Companies like Aviva Health can help you longer term so I do recommend you look into this sooner rather than later.

Polly I couldn’t agree more.
It’s worth pointing to that not all private insurers have the same policy on cancer care. Some insurers will limit the time of private care.
I’m with BUPA , they don’t, and I think there are a few others who are the same.
Check the small print, call the insurer and ask them outright, if they have continuous care they’ll be proud to tell you.
