Compare Insurance Cover Online
Is there an exclusion period at the start of the policy, how long will you be without cover? If your switching from insurer, be sure to check if you will have any days without cover, also double check you are not duel-insurered as this can pose major issues when claiming.
Compare Insurance Cover
Make sure you shop around the market! be savvy, shop around and get advice. Not all brokers and intermediaries are independant. Some are owned my major insurers or incentivised to only offer a couple of options to customers – this is really unfair!
Underwriting exclusions & Pre-Existing Medical History
Do you have any special terms of acceptance including exclusions for specific medical issues, activities or circumstances for payout? Even simple physiotherapy or regular medication could cause significant exclusions, make sure the terms of the cover is fully understood and don’t be afraid to ask questions.
Do you have to pay an excess, or contribute in the event of a claim? Some excesses are also paid per claim, some are per policy year. Some insurer’s will also class one individual claim that happens over two ‘policy years’ as two separate claims so excess can be due twice – double check the small print.
Are the premiums fixed
Do they track the base rate, do they increase with age/each year/when claiming? Make sure to calculate the increase in policy cost for making a claim against the value of the claim. Quite often, claiming for a consultation with a specialist will hike up your renewal price more than the cost of paying for the appointment yourself.
When will cover finish? Some health, life and critical illness policies have ceiling limits to the age of membership, this can leave you in a difficult position as you are stastically more likely to make major claims during the later years of life.
What is actually covered
Do you understand the treatment/conditions/circumstances can you claim for? Some insurance policies will be underwritten and may have general or specific exclusions. In some situations, your occupation may also invalidate certain aspects of cover, so be sure to shop around and find the best option for your individual circumstances. Make sure you are completely honest with your broker and disclose all medical history so they can find you the right policy.
Are you paying too much for your cover? if you haven’t shopped around for a better price in the last 3 years you are most likely paying over the odds. In some cases we have found customers paying as much as 4 times more than they should be, wasting thousands of pounds each year.
Do you have everyone that you want to cover on the policy? Are any of the members covered also on schemes elsewhere? have you looked at setting up children on their own plans?
Have you read any small print? If in doubt, ask your consultant who can legally give you advice. You can also ask a family member to check over all the dull but important details.
Have you checked any independent review organisations or researched user feedback?
It may also be worth contacting https://www.fca.org.uk/ if you are concerned about your current Insurer or Broker

Compare Insurance Cover Annually - do not auto-renew
‘Auto-renew’ is sold to us by Insurers as a hassle-free solution to manage your various policies. However, they are able to sneak increases into your renewal invitations without some customers reading the documentation.
Check the cost of your premium last year, has it gone up? chances are you are here because the answer is YES.
Make sure to compare the benefits of any new policy that you consider. These days, new policies can actually give you access to additional options, normally reserved for new customers.

What’s more, i was able to have an exclusion removed due to improved health at the new point of underwriting”.
“My parent’s Medical Insurance Policy had come up for renewal and the increase was over 40%.
