Private Medical Insurance
Why private medical insurance?
It can be difficult to look after your health and wellbeing when leading a busy life. Making sure you are properly protected should you become unwell or have an accident, helps to give you peace of mind, the security that you need, and can help you get back on your feet quicker.
Private Medical Insurance (PMI) covers the cost of eligible medical treatment in a private facility or ward.
- Quality cover
The policies can provide a range of benefits, enabling you to access treatment quicker and often with more choice compared to traditional treatment paths, when using the NHS.
One of the key benefits of private healthcare is the choice that it can provide around where and when you receive the care that you need.
- Waiting times
The NHS’ target for treating a non-emergency procedure, such as a knee or hip operation, is 18 weeks1. It’s worth asking yourself how you or your family would cope, if you had to wait this long for a procedure, whilst factoring in recovery and rehabilitation time.

How you can benefit
A typical policy will provide you with fast access to a private consultant, diagnostic tests and if required in/day patient treatment. Some policies will even cover you for private GP appointments and will book your consultation with a specialist for you.
When you have an illness, are in discomfort or even unable to work, your main priority is to be treated as soon as you can and receive the best treatment possible. Here at Jelf, we work closely with our clients to put the right policy in place so you have peace of mind that if the worst were to happen, you can just concentrate on getting better.
Some of the features and benefits of PMI include:
- Treatment in clean, modern facilities, with advanced technology.
- Cover for serious illnesses, such as cancer.
- Choice over who will supervise your treatment and which hospital you visit.
- Physiotherapy and complementary practitioner treatment.
- Access to your own, private room.
- Unrestricted visiting hours.
What our clients say
Mr Colin Jeffery
The service I get from Jelf has been most valuable in ensuring my wife and I are placed on the correct contract that meets our needs. They always follow this up with either a telephone call or e-mail to ensure we are entirely happy. I recently needed some advice on a medical matter and they were able to point out the special service offered to us through our health insurance company which saved me a lot of time and effort. The team is always friendly, knowledgeable and so helpful, it’s no wonder they win all these industry awards.
I would like to thank you on a fantastic service. Not only when we had to claim this year for a robbery but at all times. You made the stress of being burgled much easier for us, because of the way you handled the whole situation.
