We understand that choosing the right health insurance for you and your family can be confusing, especially when there are so many different policies and insurers available. We keep it simple by offering two health plans which meet different needs and budgets.

What is health insurance

Health Insurance covers the cost of receiving private treatment should you become ill or injured. It ensures you receive specialist care at a location which is convenient for you, providing you and your family with reassurance and support during what may already be a stressful or anxious time.

With increasing pressures on the National Health Service (NHS), you may find that you have to face lengthy waiting times before you can receive the necessary diagnosis or treatment. Private health insurance supports the NHS by fast-tracking diagnosis and treatment and providing a safe, secure and comfortable environment for recovery and aftercare.

What our cover includes

CS Healthcare has over 85 years' experience in providing specialist cover for civil or public servants and their families. Our health plans allow you to tailor your cover to support your family’s needs, and you can even choose which one of our carefully selected independent and private hospitals you would like to receive treatment in.

Key benefits:

  • Investigations, treatment, surgery and after care*
  • 24/7 support from Lifeline – our 24/7 advice line staffed by registered nurses
  • Automatic entitlement to a range of member rewards and NHS Cash Allowance**
  • Fast, direct claim settlement with expertise and guidance at every stage
  • Fair prices - we don't offer a No Claims Discount which means you won't be penalised for making a claim

* You will be covered for a 90-day period of necessary aftercare, which normally covers up to a maximum of three post-operative or follow-up consultations, and a period of physiotherapy of six sessions in the first instance

**The NHS Cash Allowance is available to those who choose to receive treatment on the NHS in lieu of private treatment and may be offered by the Society on a discretionary basis
