From vibrant, multicultural cities to a rich history and rolling countryside, the UK has lots to offer. Our private health insurance plans mean you have AXA by your side when you need us, leaving you to make the most of your new life in the UK.
The NHS is known worldwide, but it’s under pressure to meet people’s healthcare demands. With private health insurance plans you can avoid the waiting lists and have your treatment in private hospitals. And whichever one you choose, you’ll find comfortable facilities and you’ll usually have your own private room with an en-suite bathroom.
If you need treatment in the UK, we’re here to help - all you need to do is contact us. Because we’re a global business firmly established in the UK, we have developed an extensive network of hospitals and clinics all around the country. That means we can put you in touch with a provider we trust and make sure you have access to the treatment you need, when and where you want it. Whether that’s close to family or near work, you have the flexibility to manage your health around your timetable.
With our expat health insurance you just choose where you want cover – worldwide or worldwide except the USA. Then you’ll be covered in any country you want to have treatment in. So, if you’d prefer to go back home to see your family dentist, or you want to visit a specialist in another country we can cover the cost of your treatment. Or if you’re traveling for work or spend some of the year in another country, you’ll still be covered.
As you settle into your new life in the UK, you can feel safe in the knowledge that you’ve got the support of one of the worlds’ largest insurers by your side. We’re part of AXA, who’s been looking after people for over 55 years¹, and our team on experts are here to help you 24/7.
Our plans are designed to cover treatment of conditions you develop after you join. For details about what our plans do and don’t cover visit our plan details page, or find out more about the healthcare system in the United Kingdom.
If you’re living or working internationally for less than a year, take a look at our short term health insurance plan. It gives you all the benefits of our Standard cover level, but for a shorter time. So whether you’re only away for a few months, still weighing up your options or you want cover while you apply for your local state healthcare system, our short term plan could be ideal.
Need to talk to a doctor but don’t speak the local language? Or just struggling to find time for that appointment in your busy schedule? When you live or work abroad, accessing healthcare isn’t always easy. But with our new online doctor service, now available as part of our international health plans, you can speak to an experienced, internationally qualified doctor - at a time and place that suits you.
