The peace of mind of having a private health insurance plan can be well worth having as you enter your 50s. The good news is that over 50s health insurance need not be expensive.
Some people are concerned that costs will rise for cover as they get older. This is not necessarily the case: health insurance premiums are based on many factors. One of the biggest impacts on cost is whether a person smokes – whatever their age. Leading a healthy life and minimising risk factors will make private health costs lower. That said, insurers do understand that not everyone is a fitness fanatic, and they do provide reasonably priced cover for all lifestyles.
Health insurance providers such as AXA, Bupa, Pru and more will all provide cover for over 50s. The easiest way to find out how much it will cost is to get a free quote.
