Article Body:
Private medical insurance is optional insurance which an individual or entire family can take out by paying a
monthly premium, the same as with life or home insurance. There are many advantages to paying for private
medical insurance and here are just of the reasons you could consider taking out this form of insurance.


Perhaps the biggest advantage to taking private medical insurance is to avoid the long waiting lists that are
now common on the NHS. Private health insurance can give you peace of mind that if you become ill then
you will be immediately seen and are guaranteed to get the very best of treatment.


The second big plus to having private medical insurance is the choice that comes with it. If you should have
to have an operation then you will have a choice over the surgeon that performs the operation along with
your choice of hospital. Of course you will have a private room which means that visiting hours won’t be
restricted as they are when in a NHS hospital. You will get a choice from a menu and you wont have the
medical students standing around your bed that are commonly seen following Doctors around the wards of
the hospitals.


Not only will you avoid the waiting lists associated with operations but even for minor operations and
treatment you will be seen straight away. There are many choices for the cover you can have and searching
online for the best coverage and cheapest cover is essential. However in most cases you will only get what
you pay for and if you want to make savings then taking limited cover might be your only option.


Perhaps the only disadvantages to paying for private medical insurance is that not all medical eventualities
are covered and the private hospitals might not have the depth of expertise found in the NHS.
