    • 6. Manage the cost of your plan

      Control your subscriptions with your excess

      The core plan includes an excess of £100. You can increase that excess to £250 or £500 as a way of controlling your subscription.

      The Six week option

      If you’re comfortable using the NHS but worry about potentially long waiting times, then the Six week option could be for you.

      If in-patient and day-patient treatment or any surgical procedure is available on the NHS within six weeks from the date it should take place, then use the NHS. However if the wait for treatment is more than six weeks from when it should take place, then you can go private straight away. This is called the Six week option. As a guide, choosing this option for each of your employees could save you up to 20% off your annual subscription.

      Choose how you want to pay

      You can save 5% by paying your subscription annually.

      Choose to fix your subscription for two years

      You can choose the reassurance of knowing what subscription you’ll pay for each employee for the next two years (subject to any changes in applicable tax).

    • 7. Understand your underwriting options

      Two-year moratorium

      If you’ve experienced symptoms or been treated for a medical condition in the last five years, you'll only be covered for that condition after:

      • you've been covered by us for two consecutive years (this is the moratorium period)
      • you’ve been completely free of any form of treatment, investigations, medical advice, drugs or medicines or special diets relating to that condition for a consecutive one-year period
      • Medical declaration form not needed.

      Continuing medical exclusions
