With any health insurance policy the insurers will document the hospitals you are eligible to receive healthcare treatment in on their plans. Many of the insurers offer a national hospital list which they will provide in a brochure format which will offer an extensive list of private hospitals throughout the UK. The same insurers will often provide an extended or premier list which is an optional extra providing you with access to additional hospitals where a stay is likely to be more expensive.

The alternative to a set national hosptial list is a local hospital list which would provide you with access to hospitals in your local area, again this will be well documented in the insurers brochure and will be broken down by region. Often choosing a local hospital list will reduce your monthly premiums particularly if you are based outside of London as hospitals in the Capital tend to come at a premium.

Rauri was easy to talk to. Explained everything really well. Took prompt action when requested and was in touch when he said he would be without being pushy.

Josh made a complicated process easy and I was kept informed throughout. I will be recommending Drewberry to every one who asks and even those who don't.

I had a short time to ensure I was covered appropriately due to change of circumstances and house move. I required a number of insurance policies for my new situation. I contacted Drewberry Insurance and found that they understood all of my needs and the best way to filter and sift appropriate insurers. They clearly understood the process...made everything very easy online and via telephone and always did as they said they would by actioning everything as and when requested. This took the time and confusion away from becoming insured. Their interaction and communication and explanation of all processes ensured I understood each stage of the process. Will recommend their services to anyone seeking insurance.
