The Exeter Health Insurance review

The Exeter is a mutual, so is entirely owned by its members and has no obligations to shareholders.

Drewberry Reviews The Exeter Health Insurance

Drewberry Reviews Health Insurance from The Exeter

The Exeter’s Health Cover for Me is The Exeter’s premier Health Insurance product, offering full cover for inpatient and outpatient treatment.
 

Key Comparison Points

  • The Exeter’s Health Cover for Me includes outpatient treatment as standard, without having to add it as an optional extra.
  • Full cancer cover is included in this policy, with unlimited cover if you’re diagnosed with the disease.
  • The Exeter does not cover mental health and does not have an option to add psychiatric cover, as many other insurers do.
  • The Exeter is the only insurer to offer a fixed moratorium, which means any condition you’ve had in the 5 years prior to taking out the policy will usually be covered after 2 years on the policy, even if you’ve had treatment or sought advice for that condition within those 2 years.
  • Cover provides access to more than 300 NHS and private hospitals, as well as private clinics, across the UK.
  • The Exeter has a compulsory excess of £100, meaning you’ll always have to pay the first £100 of treatment.
 

Financial Strength

The Exeter have a strong and secure financial position, with a conservative investment policy of only 16% of their total investments in equities. By the end of 2016, The Exeter possessed gross assets of £195 million and reserves of £119 million.

Rauri was easy to talk to. Explained everything really well. Took prompt action when requested and was in touch when he said he would be without being pushy.

Q. Does The Exeter’s Health Insurance policy provide any cover for chronic conditions?

A. As with most insurance companies, the Exeter does not cover chronic conditions. However, The Exeter will provide cover leading up to the diagnosis of a chronic condition, as well as acute flare-ups or episodes of your chronic condition for as long as you have the policy.


Q. Does ‘unlimited cover’ imply that there is no limit to how much I can claim for my treatments?

A. ‘Unlimited cover’ is a term that implies that you are entitled to the full amount of cover. The Exeter set out a maximum for the fees they will pay to specialists and for your treatments, which they publish in their fee schedule.

I had a short time to ensure I was covered appropriately due to change of circumstances and house move. I required a number of insurance policies for my new situation. I contacted Drewberry Insurance and found that they understood all of my needs and the best way to filter and sift appropriate insurers. They clearly understood the process...made everything very easy online and via telephone and always did as they said they would by actioning everything as and when requested. This took the time and confusion away from becoming insured. Their interaction and communication and explanation of all processes ensured I understood each stage of the process. Will recommend their services to anyone seeking insurance.
