Everything we do is about making things simpler, so you can make the most of what matters to you. Whether you’re looking for individual, family or business health insurance, we offer a range of features and benefits that set us apart from other insurers.

After your first child, any additional children can be added to your health insurance policy at no extra cost.
Dedicated Personal Service
Whenever you buy a policy or submit a claim, you usually deal with the same person throughout the entire process.
Freedom Elite Comprehensive Health Insurance
We understand how important it is to have a health plan that you can rely on when the worst happens. Our Freedom Elite health insurance core cover already includes a comprehensive range of health benefits such as full coverage for eligible medical treatment when you are admitted to hospital and extensive cancer cover. You can further enhance your policy and tailor it to your needs.
Freedom Essentials Cost-Conscious Health Insurance
Health insurance can be affordable, can provide a good level of cover and can even help you get treatment abroad. With our Freedom Essentials plan you get a fixed cash benefit for treatment when you are admitted in a hospital. You can then use the money to get treated privately in the UK or abroad. You will still receive 50% of the cash benefit if you choose to get treated through the NHS.
Freedom Worldwide International Health Insurance
Get peace of mind when living and working abroad, knowing that your health is taken care of. Five levels of cover, including comprehensive cancer cover and repatriation benefit are only a few of the benefits offered by our international health plan. And when you return to the UK, you can usually seamlessly switch to our Freedom Elite plan without additional exclusions.
With Freedom Your Choice medical insurance - you choose how to use your money and where and how you would like to use your policy.
You pay for your health cover – you decide how to use it. Even though you have private medical insurance, you don’t have to use it for private treatment.
- If you want to use the UK's NHS you will be entitled to a cash lump sum that you can use however you like.
- If you choose private healthcare, there are no hospital lists or restrictions on how or where you can use your policy. Any difference between how much your treatment costs and your policy allowance is paid back to you.
You can get treated anywhere, worldwide. Freedom Your Choice health insurance gives you the opportunity to choose the world's healthcare centres that meet your health needs.
You could get treated in a:
- NHS hospitals – You get a cash lump sum to spend as you wish.
- Private centre:
- UK – You are a cash buyer so you can shop around or we can find you a consultant & hospital that suits your location and budget. You can pocket any saving or top up as required.
- Private centre abroad – You can be treated anywhere abroad that you like. Again, you pocket any savings you make.
With the Freedom Choice health cover you can choose to get treated at a time that is most convenient to you.
product2 detailsFreedom Health is UK based and all policy administration and claims handling are managed from their offices in Poole.
Freedom has 3 products;
- Elite plan
- Worldwide (their international plan) and
- Essentials plan.
Freedom's 'Elite' medical plan is designed to meet the cost of elective, short-term medical treatment provided by a
specialist that you need because you are suffering from an unexpected acute condition that first arises during a period of insurance. The Elite plan routinely does not cover pre-existing conditions or chronic conditions. However, if you have been previously underwritten and are currently covered by a UK based, FCA authorised insurer, Freedom will offer to accept you according to the original underwriting of your plan.
So for example, if you were underwritten with a 20% loading for a back condition, then Freedom will consider to accept you on the same terms. This means of underwriting is called 'Continuation of Previous Medical Underwriting' or 'CPME' terms.
All Freedom Elite policies must include the core cover as standard. This covers inpatient and daypatient treatment, certain pregnancy complications and dental surgical procedures, MRI, CT and PET scans, home nursing, private ambulance and NHS cash benefit. The core cover also includes full cancer cover.
For cover to be issued it is required that you be registered with a GP.
See summary of benefits and exclusions below. More precise information is provided in the policy document.

The Worldwide plan offers 5 levels of protection.. as per benefit table below.
The Essentials plan works slightly differently to a traditional Interntational Medical plan.
Out-patient treatment (consultations and diagnostics, MRI, CT and PET scans) is all settled on a direct settlement basis with the treatment provider, whilst all other benefits are on a fixed cash benefit.
Your have the option to seek treatment privately, via the NHS or even abroad. The cancer cover on this policy is very limited, the only benefit is a fixed cash amount for surgery as part of your cancer treatment, and a fixed amount per session of radio/chemotherapy.
At the heart of every Freedom Elite policy there is a comprehensive core cover, designed to provide a strong foundation for building your own personal healthcare plan. With a selection of additional health benefits to choose from and policy choices that could save you money, we make it easy for you to create the medical insurance that’s right for you and your loved ones.
Freedom Elite covers eligible hospital fees, specialist fees and diagnostic tests in full when you are admitted to a hospital for inpatient or day-patient treatment. Here are other benefits included in the core cover:
- Dental surgery
- Home nursing
- Private road ambulance
- Pregnancy complications
- Maternity cash benefit
- MRI, CT and PET scans
- NHS cash benefit
- Cancer cover

Whether you are looking for an individual policy just for you or you want to cover your whole family, the Freedom Essentials plan allows you to get treated in any hospital, anywhere in the world.
Fixed cash benefit
With Freedom Essentials you receive a fixed cash benefit with no annual limit for eligible inpatient and day-patient treatment which you can then use to get treated privately in the UK or abroad as a self-pay patient.
If you decide to use the NHS for your treatment, you will still receive 50% of the cash benefit to spend however you want.

Cancer Cash Benefit
We believe the NHS provides excellent treatment for cancer, so in order to keep our prices down, we don’t include traditional cancer cover in our Freedom Essentials plan.
Nevertheless, we understand the impact cancer can have on someone’s life and we know that a little support can really help. That’s why Freedom Essentials offers a fixed cash benefit as part of a course of active cancer treatment for medical procedures and chemotherapy or radiotherapy which you can use towards the cost of private treatment or to perhaps offset some of the other expenses you might face during this time.
