Review Health Insurance from April UK

Drewberry Reviews Health Insurance from April UK

  • April UK Health Insurance allows you to purchase cover as an individual from the age of 16 – most other insurers require you to be 18.
  • April puts a minimum excess of £100 on its policy.
  • April doesn’t operate a no-claims discount, unlike many of its competitors in the sector.
  • The NHS Cancer Care Cash Benefit offers £300 per day/night you spend in an NHS hospital receiving cancer treatment rather than using your Private Health Insurance, up to 30 days per year.

Financial Strength

As part of the international April Group, April UK is in a strong financial position. It has the backing of a global insurer with more than 6 million customers in 31 countries worldwide.

April UK has recently partnered with a major provider of private healthcare, Spire, giving patients access to Spire hospitals across the country. The deal further strengthens its financial position.

Q. How does April UK’s NHS Cancer Cash Benefit work?

If you elect to receive cancer treatment for free in an NHS hospital, April will pay up to £300 per day/night you spend receiving eligible outpatient (radiotherapy, chemotherapy, blood transfusions or outpatient surgical procedures only), day-patient and inpatient treatment.

The benefit is instead of paying out for private treatment and will only be triggered if the treatment you receive from the NHS would have been covered under your April UK policy. You must submit evidence of your NHS treatment within 6 months of its conclusion.

Q. Can I add my newborn baby to my Health Insurance?

Yes. Although treatment for ‘normal’ pregnancy is not covered for the mother, you can add a newborn to your April Health Insurance policy after the birth. April permits children to be covered as dependants from the day they’re born until their 25th birthday

Sam Carr provided a professional but enthusiastic service and helped make the whole process very straight forward. Goodness knows I have been through enough application forms recently. My insurance product was never going to be easy to find and I had been rejected on a number of other occasions through others ironically due to well managed common health conditions. I identified Drewberry in a last and disappointing trawl on th web to find someone that actually wanted to take on a difficult case like me. Some brokers wouldn't even consider me. When we applied for my first choice product Sam wasn't at all deterred by the long wait for my GP report or the final rejection that came back from the insurer, sadly I have become used to it. Within a day he had lined up the second choice and to my surprise he had hit the nail on the head and introduced me to the correct insurer and terms for my needs whilst nogotiating an excellent premium. I am extremely satisfied with what Sam has achieved for me and I would have no hesitation in recommending either him or Drewberry to friends, family and and business contacts. In the future, Drewberry will be my first point of contact. Many thanks!
