While each plan will have its own perks and benefits, there are a few which are typical across lots of policies and could cover you for things such as;
- Gaining access to treatments and medication that aren't available on the NHS
- The choice of hospital and consultant
- Avoiding NHS waiting lists
- Having your own private, clean room should you need to stay in a hospital
Remember to thoroughly check your policy documents to check exactly what you are and aren't covered for.
