What is the difference between life insurance and health insurance?

Health insurance gives you access to private medical specialists and facilities for treatment. Private medical insurance works alongside the NHS. It gives you more choice about who treats you. Health insurance also includes seeing a private GP, mental health support and private physiotherapy.

Life insurance can help in a few ways. It depends on your individual needs and what plan you buy. 

  • If you have a mortgage, life insurance could cover the repayments if something unexpected happened
  • If you get sick and can’t work, you would receive a lump sum payout, or a monthly income to help cover your outgoings
  • If you pass away or become terminally ill, you and your family would receive a payout.
