What’s the difference between Benenden Health and private health insurance?
We’re a not-for-profit healthcare provider which complements the NHS with private diagnosis and treatment but we’re not an insurance provider. Benenden Health is owned by its 800,000 members who put their trust in us to use their monthly membership contributions appropriately to provide them with private healthcare, when they need it, on a discretionary basis.
This means that the provision of services is subject to the resources we have available through membership contributions. Furthermore, when members request support, we have discretion as to whether we provide assistance and the level of assistance to be provided. We manage our funds and the services we provide carefully to ensure that we can continue to provide assistance to members who require our support. This discretionary approach has served our membership well for more than 110 years and will continue to do so into the future.
How much does it cost?
Just £11.50 per person, per month. We have one price for everyone. It doesn’t rise with age or pre-existing conditions or when you use our services. The cost of membership is reviewed annually.
Is my treatment covered?
You can find out whether your treatment or procedure is covered here.
Can I cover my family too?
You can add your family onto your membership for an extra £11.50 per person, per month and extend the same feeling of reassurance to your loved ones. They don’t even have to live with you to be added your membership.
Do I have to see my GP before I request your services, or can I call Benenden Health straight away?
From day one you have 24/7 access to our 24/7 GP and Mental Health Helplines for both you and any immediate family members – even if they’re not members. After six months of membership you can ask for help with medical diagnostics, treatment and surgery, if your NHS appointment is over three weeks for medical diagnostics, or over five weeks for medical treatment and surgery.
For help with diagnosis you must have been referred by your NHS GP practice and have confirmation that the NHS waiting time is three weeks or more. You’ll be responsible for funding any diagnostic costs incurred over £1,800.
When requesting treatment, we will ask you for a CCSD code, which your GP can provide, as well as confirmation the NHS wait time is over five weeks.
Will there be any excesses to pay to access services?
No, there’s no excess to pay. But you will be responsible for funding any costs incurred over £1,800 for a diagnosis. In 2018, the average cost of a diagnosis was just over £600.
