Do you need both universal health care and insurance?

These days you can never be too careful with the health of both yourself and your family. While the NHS offers a solid healthcare solution, it's far from perfect, which is why many people opt for both the NHS' universal health care and insurance on top if it, just in case things take an unexpected turn for the worse.

Why Both?

It's fair to say that many people in the United Kingdom believe that their NHS entitlements are sufficient for their healthcare, and while that often proves to be true, it doesn't take into account emergencies and unforeseen health issues.

Universal health

Having both universal health care and insurance means that you and your family are covered for most healthcare related events. With the NHS, less important issues can be treated as part of due course, which can often take months, but for more important medical emergencies, that's often not enough, and private healthcare, which is often essential in extreme cases, can prove to be incredibly expensive without an insurance policy in place.

By taking out a separate health insurance policy, you and your loved ones will have the peace of mind that, should a medica emergency crop up, you won't find yourselves on long NHS waiting lists, watching the days tick slowly by when immediate care should be your priority.

Thankfully, there are countless options available for every budget that'll ensure you've got a backup plan when the UK's universal health care system just won't suffice.

By taking out a health insurance policy, you'll be able to skip the queues and instead focus on getting on with the process of healing.

Better Safe Than Sorry

Even if you're struggling to make ends meet, pairing up your universal health care with insurance is the best approach to take to safeguard your future and the future of your loved ones.

Unless you're suffering with a pre-existing condition, you'll likely be able to find a reliable private healthcare solution for a very reasonable monthly fee, which will cover your entire family - and for the sake of what could amount to as little as a few pounds or pence per day, isn't the added expense worthwhile?
