  • Your current health insurance has too many extra benefits you never use.
  • You are not happy with the service you receive from your health insurance company.

5 questions to ask yourself before renewing your health insurance policy

 1. Is your current health insurance policy still relevant to your healthcare needs?

 2. Were you able to use your policy as expected and were you satisfied with the resolution of your claim?

 3. Have you recently reviewed your policy and premiums?

 4. Were you always happy with the service you received from the health insurance company?

 5. Do you think your existing health insurance is worth the premium you are paying?

If you answered NO to any of these questions, you should review your existing health insurance plan and think about alternatives.

Top tips for switching health insurance

  • Never choose your health insurance cover solely on price. More expensive health insurance plans are not necessarily better, and conversely, don’t just go for the cheapest health insurance plan, as it might not provide the cover you need.
  • We will ask the new health insurance company if they can offer you cover under the same terms as your previous provider, to ensure that new exclusions are not added to your policy.
  • One of the best times to switch health insurance is close to your renewal date. If you choose to switch during your insurance term, your current health insurance company might charge you specific fees.
  • If you are leaving a work health insurance scheme, contact us to see if we can search the market for you as your current scheme may not be most appropriate for you.
  • It is normal for health insurance premiums to go up at renewal. Usually, premiums go up due to your age, medical inflation, insurance premium tax, or because of the claims you made. Different insurers have different rules about how much and how often your premium increases so it’s always worth shopping around in case there are better deals available.
  • Use an expert health insurance broker to help you switch. The health insurance market can be very complicated and an independent insurance specialist can give you trustworthy advice on how to make your switch worthwhile.
