Why private health insurance

Couple playing in bed

Less expensive than public

Since private insurance takes on customers based on their health, it is generally more affordable than public, especially if you sign-up early, while you’re younger and healthier. Once signed up, your premium will not increase because you become older.

Faster appointments and better coverage

Most doctors reserve appointments for private health insurance holders, which makes it easier for you to access healthcare in your area, especially in big cities. In addition to that, you generally get better coverage compared to public insurance, for example in terms of dental and vision care.

Yearly cashback

How does income affect my eligibility?

The minimum income threshold for private depends on your occupation and age. Typically, employees earning well, self-employed, students and civil servants would be eligible.

Will my dependents be covered?

If you're thinking of adding your dependents, they could be eligible at an extra cost. You should check their eligibility to make sure your whole family can be on private health insurance.

Getting older won’t affect your price

The price is based on your age when you sign-up. It then only increases when overall healthcare costs go up – historically about 2% per year for public and private insurance alike.
