Things to be aware of

Named Perils Policy

Health Insurance generally works as “a Named Perils” policy. This means that the policy document will specifically state all the conditions that are covered. Anything that is not listed is not covered. Your Howden consultant will take the time to make sure you properly understand what you are buying. 

Some Pre-Existing Conditions may be excluded

This is one of the most common conditions in Health Insurance. 

As Health Insurance is a Named Perils cover, some pre-existing conditions are excluded from the policies. It is very important to check whether any conditions are excluded. Your Howden consultant will help you get the coverage you need to achieve peace of mind. 
 

Who is the cover with?

Howden secures cover with insurers who have deep expertise in insurance. All the insurers we use are well respected, have extremely stable finances and will be viable long term. 

From initial diagnosis to final consultation, you can get the treatment you need more quickly and with less fuss. When it comes to your health, why settle for anything less than the best?
