If you are planning to have a family, private health insurance takes on a whole new dimension. Like any parent, you want to ensure that you and your baby are looked after in the best possible way, which puts excellent medical care right at the top of your list of priorities.
Many UK health insurance companies view pregnancies as a ‘lifestyle choice’ rather than illnesses, meaning cover may not be available unless it is medically necessary, such as for an emergency Caesarean section or relevant complications. It is important to check all the details, as different insurers will apply different criteria and exclusions.
And with such a wealth of often confusing information out there, we strongly recommend that you use the services of a professional insurance broker to guide you through the process. For pregnancy related cover there usually would be an initial waiting period for cover
