What is a comprehensive sickness insurance (CSI) plan?

A comprehensive sickness insurance (CSI) plan is a type of private health insurance policy that offers full cover in the event that you are referred to a hospital for medical treatment or investigations (also known as inpatient cover) or when you are referred by a GP for diagnostic tests, scans or consultations without being admitted in a hospital (also known as out-patient cover).

Our team of expert advisers at UK Health Insurance can help you find the right comprehensive sickness insurance plan for you, while keeping costs to a minimum.

Do I need comprehensive sickness insurance**?

Under the UK’s post-Brexit laws, citizens from the EEA, as well as their family members, may acquire the right to live in the UK through the EU Settlement Scheme or by getting an immigration visa.

If you are an EEA or Swiss national who started living in the UK as a student or a self-sufficient person (somebody who has sufficient resources not to become a burden on the UK’s social assistance system), before 31 December 2020, you may be required to provide proof of comprehensive sickness insurance cover for yourself and your family members.


What happens if I move to the UK after 31 December 2020**?

Since Brexit, many aspects of how people can lawfully reside in the UK are changing. During the transition period, the EU Settlement Scheme is the main method for EEA & Swiss citizens to apply to get the right to continue living in the UK. Should you still require comprehensive sickness insurance, don’t hesitate to contact us for a quote.

Non-EU citizens can continue to apply for visas to reside in the UK and self-sufficient persons and students may need comprehensive sickness insurance to prove they have access to private healthcare. You should check the UK Visa and Immigration requirements based on your individual circumstances before applying for CSI.
