AFFORDABLE PRIVATE HEALTHCARE

THE COUNTY MEDICAL APPROACH

County Medical health insurance policies fill a gap between a struggling NHS and a private medical insurance market aimed mainly at the corporate sector.

County Medical prioritises individuals and small businesses, people who care about the health of their families but who demand value for money and a high quality of service. As a doctor run organisation, it is at the point of use that you will appreciate our strength in terms of support, flexibility and clarity.

Our aim is to be there for you at your time of need.

THE COUNTY MEDICAL PROMISE

County Medical was formed by a group of senior doctors to whom the challenges the NHS is facing has been apparent for some time.  It is clear that NHS waiting times will continue to rise as it struggles financially. However, few patients can afford delays to their treatment.

In future, private medical treatment will become more common and people will need private health insurance.  This has, until now, been generally regarded as something for very wealthy individuals and large corporate organisations as the policies can often be prohibitively expensive. We don’t think this needs to be the case and we are introducing a product which is competitively priced, providing high-quality support and flexibility at the point of use.

We have a significant advantage when making this claim. As a doctor run organisation, we know the importance of good medical care and how to deliver it. We are not backed by large financial concerns, which means we are not under pressure to turn large profits and can, therefore, focus on providing value for money. Although we are a new company, as individuals we have extensive experience in delivering and managing healthcare and private medical insurance products.

Our network partners include BMI Hospitals, the largest chain of private hospitals in the UK, and syndicates at Lloyds underwriting the insurance policies we offer. We have aligned the interest of all our partners to make you the centre of our product but above all 
else we will look after you because as a group of doctors we are fundamentally passionate about healthcare and our patients

WHY COUNTY MEDICAL IS DIFFERENT

 

We’re led by DOCTORS

Which means we understand exactly what’s involved in delivering first-class medical care to our policyholders – and we base our service around it.

 

We’re regionally focused

Which means we’re aware of the healthcare facilities that are close to you so we’re better positioned to help you.

 

We provide full nationwide access to the bmi network

Which means we can guide and support you in complex situations when you use our networked facilities.


We’re transparent

Which means there are no misunderstandings. Our list of procedures is readily available so you know what you are covered for. This list covers an overwhelming range of procedures that are carried out routinely in private hospitals under private medical insurance schemes. Procedures that you are unlikely to have done in a private medical centre, or are better off being treated for on the NHS, are excluded so that you can save on your premium.
