Have a healthy new year with the additional health services included in your protection insurance.

As a new year begins, you may want a fresh start for your and your family's health. Did you know that many insurance policies offer access to various health and well-being services that can help? You also don't need to claim to use them as your protection policies aren't just there for when things go wrong.

Often called added-value benefits, these services can help you and your family start or maintain good health and make your lives easier by providing advice, assistance, and information to keep you and your family healthy throughout the year.

The types of services typically available with protection insurance fall into three areas:


  • Access to an online GP
  • Second medical opinion service
  • Prescription services
  • Medical care abroad


  • Mental health support
  • Physical rehabilitation
  • Counselling services
  • Return to work support
  • Bereavement support
  • Legal support


  • Health MOTs
  • Nutritional support
  • Fitness services
  • Online physiotherapy
  • Nurse healthlines

Please note that not all insurers include all of these, so speak to us to make sure you have the right cover in place for you and your family.

You can use your protection policy to help you stay in good shape with these added health services, and here's why:
  • Many of the services are free - You don't need to claim on your policy to use them, and they can be utilized throughout the life of your plan regardless of pre-existing conditions.
  • They can often be used by your family, too – most services are also available for a partner or children to use at no cost.
  • They are easy to use - You can book many of these services online, and they're accessible via an online consultation, an app, or by phone with a professional. 
  • They are provided by medical and health experts.
  • They are suitable for your health and well-being - From serious illness to everyday healthcare support, your protection policy can include fast access to expert advice and support.

Many clients have seen the benefits; for example,  one of the insurers we work with reported that 99% of GP appointments were offered within 2 hours of a customer contacting them. They also saw the demand for these appointments increase by 126% from the previous year, showing that wider emotional, health, and family support services can make a difference in people's lives.

When considering a protection policy, we can discuss health and well-being services with you. We can help you get the proper protection in place by looking at your and your family's needs.
