Why buy private healthcare insurance?

Private healthcare insurance is designed to make you feel secure when you need medical treatment. It makes sure that when you need treatment covered by the plan you’ll be cared for comfortably, quickly and given a greater choice about where and when you receive treatment.

It also offers you flexibility around appointment times, and a choice of specialists, consultants and surgeons.

If you do need to have hospital treatment, maintaining your privacy during stressful times is of real importance – with private rooms usually offering the comfort of en-suite facilities and your own TV and telephone.

It’s often the little things that members and those close to them really appreciate when they’re in a private hospital; typically from a choice of nutritionally balanced meals to the flexibility of free hospital parking for visitors who are unrestricted by set visiting hours.


Choosing the right plan for you will depend on your budget and the level of cover you select to meet your needs – but you can be confident that you’ll receive a high quality of service from AXA PPP healthcare.
