We want to hear from our MoneySavers on private medical insurance. We want to hear your success stories if you have:

1) Had a PMI policy, shopped around and was able to save.
2) Haggled for a better price.
3) Made a claim.

Cheers :)


  • I saved £8,000 on my yearly health insurance policy. The best advice I'd offer anyone for shopping around with PMI is to seek advice from an independent insurance broker as a lot of the big comparison sites don't give impartial quotes.

    Just had my annual renewal pack for a BUPA family policy - had to ring to clarify a cover issue and was offered 2 months free (equivalent to a 17% discount)
  • I have just received my new quote from Bupa, it had increased by £500 a year. I did a search on this website and Bupa had a similar product to cover my needs £100 cheaper a month. When I rang them to ask about this, (I spent nearly 2 hours on the phone, with an advisor. Incredibly thorough and detailed well worth it ) I ended up changing my policy with Bupa. My new poilcy is £97 a month instead of my new quote £221 a month. Thank you Martin
  • Bupa gives discounts often
