Take the steps to help you understand and know your health

As diabetes can have such a major impact on your life, Wellness Optimiser requires you to have a health check at least once every year at a special discounted rate of £10* - to measure your key lifestyle-related health factors.

This identifies whether each of these health factors are within a healthy range or if you need to take action to improve your health.

Measurement  Wellness Zone 
Body Mass Index (BMI)  18.5 - 24.9 kg/m2
18.5 - 29.9kg/m2 for men with waist measurement less than 103cm, and for women with a waist measurement less than 88cm.

Get rewarded for staying healthy over the long-term

By improving (or maintaining) your Wellness and Vitality statuses, you can control how much your premiums change from year to year, like this:

Vitality Status
Bronze Silver Gold Platinum
Wellness Status Select 2% 1% 0% -1%*
Healthy 3% 2% 1% 0%
Everyday 4% 3% 2% 1%

*Your maximum premium reduction, due to annual premium adjustments on Wellness Optimiser is capped at 5%.

To recognise the extra effort needed to stay active as you get older, once you get to 70 years of age, your premiums will only change based on your Vitality status – as though you had a Wellness status of Select.

Please make sure you follow any specific medical advice given to you by your GP or appropriate medical specialist. You should always comply with the HbA1c levels advised by your GP or treating specialist. If your GP or appropriate medical specialist has recommended you target different health metrics, compared to our standard healthy ranges, Wellness Optimiser might not be appropriate for you.
