You are an expatriate or a future expatriate in the UK? In this article, we explain you how a health insurance works in England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and opportunities available in health coverage that suit your case.
First, there is the National Health Service that covers all residents in the UK.
Anyone living in the UK is entitled to the NHS which is free ... but this public service does not reimburse you drugs, dental and optical care.
If public service benefits are not enough for various reasons (see article on how to choose the best health insurance in the UK), you can take advantage of an English private insurance to supplement the NHS. The private medical insurance (PMI) prevents the doctor's timeline consultation. It is suitable for those who are satisfied with the NHS and agree to be only treated in the UK.
Another option is to take out an international health insurance, saving you all the disadvantages of an English health insurance and covering you all around the world.
International health insurances are also called first euro expatriate insurance because they support your medical expenses from the first euro spent. You can see the chart to compare different insurance policies offered to expatriate from 1 euro.
