Private health insurance and health cash plans are becoming increasingly popular across the UK.
But do you know what yours covers and could you actually access treatments and therapies that you didn’t know you could? It is always worth checking the policy itself or giving the provider a call to see what they say. Massage therapy in particular enables recovery from injuries or problems which themselves are covered by that person’s health insurance.
There are many different types of policies that offer many different levels of cover and so it really is worth a quick check. Some health insurance policies will be limited to a specific number of sessions and others will be limited by a ‘pot’ of money from which sessions can be taken.

What is a Private Health Cash Plan?
Private Health Cash Plans are increasing in popularity and can offer additional health cover for individuals often at minimal monthly cost. Policies can be funded by an employer or purchased by an individual, for themselves or for their family.
They work by processing claims for reimbursement for healthcare costs not funded by the NHS or private medical insurance policies. Each company offers different levels of coverage, which reimburse for costs of varying therapies to set annual limits.
It is your responsibility to check with your insurer whether your treatment will be covered.
If you have specific questions about the qualifications required by your insurer then please either speak to your therapist or contact us.
You will always have to pay for the treatment upfront and then claim it back from the insurer.
