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.

Jake was very knowledgeable and took as much time as I needed to ensure that I understood my options in sufficient detail. I did not feel rushed at all when considering Accident and Sickness insurance. Excellent customer service and thoroughly professional in all aspects. I have no hesitation in recommending Drewberry Insurance and in particular Jake Beal.
