Add Family Members on my Company Health Insurance
Some employers offer private medical insurance to their employees but do not allow membership for wives, partners, or family. Therefore, you can take out a separate plan to cover your family with an individual private health plan. Often people feel uncomfortable about taking the employer’s benefit but not being able to protect their family, so to prevent this; your family can be insured under a separate individual scheme. The cost will be lower than a plan, including yourself, so it is usually cost-effective to join the company scheme and have a different plan and program for the remaining family members.

Leaving a Company’s Private Health Insurance Scheme
When you are considering changing jobs, it is always worth comparing the benefits offered by the new employer and just comparing salaries. If you are moving to a new employer and your new employer does not have a private medical insurance plan available for employees, your previous cover will cease unless you begin to maintain the monthly payments, usually with a direct debit from your personal account.
To continue cover, you have two options available:
- The insurance company that provided cover under your employer’s scheme usually gives you an option to take out an individual or family plan. However, once you have a quotation, it is then well worth seeking alternatives. Similar to car insurance, private medical insurance premium varies considerably.
- Complete the inquiry form. You will be contacted by a health insurance specialist insurance broker who will provide you with a comparison of premiums and cover available tailored to your requirements.
Health Insurance for Employees Working Abroad
If you are working abroad on a temporary or permanent basis, it is essential to ensure that you are fully covered for medical insurance in the country or countries in which you are working. Should you have any employees currently or expected to work outside of the UK, it is essential to make sure that they are covered in needing medical treatment. You can do this by taking out an international private medical insurance plan, and the policy may cover one or a group of individuals and or their partners and families.
International or expatriate medical insurance is more expensive than a standard UK plan. It is worth comparing costs and covers to ensure that the plan adequately covers you or your employees. Should you require a comparison of prices and cover for international health insurance, please complete the attached inquiry to obtain comprehensive information.
Non-UK Resident Private Medical Insurance
If you are coming to live, work or study in the UK from abroad, it is first worth checking if your employer has a private medical insurance scheme for employees to which you can be added.
If not, and you require cover for yourself and your family, many companies in the UK offer private medical insurance for non-UK residents. To receive a comparison of costs and benefits of suitable plans available, complete and submit the health insurance application inquiry, and you will be contacted by one of our specialist international medical insurance brokers. They will be able to talk you through the costs, cover, and options available. We hope you will find the comparison of private medical insurance to be of value.
Reviewing an existing company health insurance plan
Companies need to review existing group private medical insurance plans annually; there can often be a considerable saving from an alternative company offering comparable cover but at a reduced premium. Many corporate insurers will also take over existing company schemes allowing for existing or recent claims, so do not think it would not be worth reviewing your company scheme even if you have had recent requests.
