Insured patients - save your practice money

Insured Myth 

As a GP by encouraging and/or reminding patients to use their private medical insurance, you can save the NHS a significant amount of money and help make the most of NHS resources.

Did you know...

  • 15-25% of the population in Mid Essex are likely to have health insurance or have the ability to fund their own treatment.

  • By reminding your patients to use their health insurance you can help:
    • Relieve pressure of demand on the NHS.
    • Reduce patient waiting lists.
    • Save your practice money.
    • Help your patient receive treatment sooner.

  • Some of the reasons that a patient does not use their health insurance are because:
    • They forget they have it.
    • They don’t think they will be covered.
    • They remember half way through their NHS pathway.
    • Their GP does not offer the option to choose.
