Will I have lower health insurance premiums if I exercise?

I go to the gym 3-4 times a week doing mainly aerobic exercise, I live a generally healthy lifestyle and wanted to know whether I would benefit from telling my health insurer and whether it would make my premiums cheaper.

Answered by Andrew Jenkinson

Many of the insurers are now providing incentives to help their members live a healthier lifestyle, often you can build up points for going to the gym, eating healthier or having a health screening.

Points win prizes at the end of the day whether it be in cashback, discounts or other perks. Promoting healthier living is at the forefront of many of the insurers strategy so if they have a wellbeing scheme they should make you aware of it when considering their plan. Do always make the insurer or your adviser aware of your lifestyle, it can only help your cause if you are a gym addict.

Josh did a great job. Did all the legwork for me in getting the best quote and even handed it over to someone else whilst he was away, then finished the whole thing once he was back – impressed!

Bronja Whitlock was absolutely brilliant, as my mind isn’t in the right place at the moment due to the loss of my partner and I forgot who my insurers were or if I was covered. I therefore contacted her from an old email that I had from a few years just explaining my situation. I wasn’t expecting a response to be honest, but Bronja replied back the same day. She didn’t just reply with the most empathising response, but she also contacted the insurance company and told them of my situation and ordered my claim pack on my behalf, which I can’t appreciate enough. Bronja Whitlock you are an asset to your company. Thank you.
