PruProtect has launched two new health insurance products.
The firm says the new products, health cover and health cover optimiser, help consumers meet their health and protection needs and provide easier access to private medical insurance.
PruProtect policyholders can add health cover to their plan, which pays for the cost of private medical treatment for a wide range of conditions including day-to-day treatment, seeing a specialist or having an operation.
Instead of having to buy serious illness cover and health cover separately, they can be combined in one package with one application form, one direct debit, one number to call to make a claim and a 5 per cent discount compared to buying the covers separately.
The products come in three tiers of cover – comprehensive, primary and heart and cancer cover – and are all supported by PruHealth.
PruProtect says the options provide extensive coverage including access to some of the best private hospitals in the UK and access to over 7,000 experienced and skilled medical professionals.
The health cover optimiser lets clients create a comprehensive package of benefits in one vehicle, saving up to 25 per cent compared to buying health cover separately from PruHealth.
