Drewberry Reviews Health Insurance from Freedom

Freedom’s Elite Health Insurance allows you to add on an optional benefit to cover routine dental and optical treatment, similar to a Health Cash Plan.
 

Key Comparison Points

  • Freedom Health Insurance covers children as dependants up until their 25th birthday and they can be added up until their 24th birthday, which is later than many other insurers.
  • Freedom provides a 6% discount if you pay your premiums annually rather than monthly.
  • Freedom’s Elite PMI policy sets out the discount you’ll receive for setting a particular excess in its policy documents, e.g. a £250 excess will result in a 15% premium reduction.
  • Freedom will not pay for expensive diagnostic outpatient scans, such as MRI, CT or PET scans, if they’re requested by a GP. You must be referred by an approved specialist for such scans.
  • Freedom’s Cancer Cover will pay for diagnostic tests/scans for cancer, even if you have no outpatient cover on your policy.
 

Financial Strength

As a provider of both Travel Insurance and Private Medical Insurance, Freedom is a diversified operation. It has partnerships with a number of major private healthcare providers, including the sought after Spire, BMI Healthcare and Nuffield Health brands.

Ceiron King did an amazing job setting up my insurance. He was meticulous to all details and made sure everything was individually tailor made to suit my circumstances. When I had queries he was able to take on board any issues and find solutions quickly. Pleasant, easy to talk to, engaging, personable chap who effortlessly made me feel that I'd found the right firm. Highly recommended.
