Health insurance is set up as a annually reviewable contract, it is designed to stay apace with all the latest medical developments thus wth increasing costs of treatment it is normal for the premiums to rise. This is also coupled with the fact that year on year we are getting older which unfortunately means are likelihood of needing treatment rises which can also affect your premiums.

This is why it is so important to review your policy year on year to ensure the plan you currently hold and the premiums you pay are competitive in the marketplace.

I was having trouble finding a suitable income protection policy online and was unclear about what I should be looking for, so I contacted Drewberry. The process was very quick and straightforward. They called me and explained how this type of insurance works, and then went through series of questions about my circumstances to try and find the right cover for me. They came back to me the next day with several suitable options and emailed all the relevant information clearly laid out. Michael Barrow, the advisor I spoke to, was happy to explain things in detail and answer any questions I had. I would definitely recommend Drewberry as they took all the hassle out of a confusing search.
