What is private medical insurance (PMI)?
Private medical insurance (PMI) is an insurance policy designed to meet some or all of the costs of private medical treatment. Private medical insurance is often referred to as PMI, private health insurance, private health cover and health insurance.
PMI is designed to ensure that if you need medical treatment in the future, you won’t need to worry about NHS waiting lists or for self-funding the costs of your treatment. If you are treated privately, health insurance will pay all or some of your bills.
Health insurance covers many things including hospital scans, surgical procedures, inpatient treatment (staying overnight in a hospital bed) and medicines. However not all costs are covered in every situation, so it’s best to check with your insurer about any exclusions in your policy. For instance, insurers will not usually cover the costs of treating chronic or on-going conditions that you were aware of before you were insured.
There are many different insurance companies who offer various types of insurance cover. These can include specialist policies for over-55s, ones that focus on particular medical conditions or international policies aimed at expatriates living overseas.
