The NHS and Your Healthcare in the UK


If you're moving to the UK as part of a work transfer for more than six months but not permanently, you'll definitely need to pay more than just visa fees. Anyone coming from a country outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) and moving to the UK for work or study purposes, or to join their family that's already in the UK will need to pay the Immigration Health Surcharge. This entitles you to 100 per cent free healthcare under the NHS for the duration of your stay. Please note that even if you have international private medical insurance or travel insurance, you're still required to pay the Immigration Health Surcharge.


What exactly is the NHS? The United Kingdom provides public universal healthcare coverage through the National Health Service (NHS). It's one, if not the most, widely recognized healthcare systems in the world, and each member country of the UK have its own public health system that is NHS England, NHS Scotland and NHS Wales.


The upside of the UK's public healthcare system is that it provides healthcare coverage to more members of the public. However, it does have its downsides as well, such as longer waiting times to see an NHS-accredited specialist or GP. This is where having an international health plan can work in your favour as it gives you more options when it comes to choosing a doctor or the appropriate facility to treat whatever medical conditions you may have.


Many international insurance companies like Now Health UK offer a variety of global health plans to suit your needs. Thanks to their extensive network of medical providers in the UK as well as in Europe, it's easier to avail of medical services when and where you need it. Depending on your choice of international health insurance plans, repatriation to your home country or country of residence is possible if it's deemed necessary.


World-Class Care and Service


Under the NHS, even if you're an expatriate in the UK, you're considered ordinarily resident and thus, still entitled to receive certain treatments for free or at a lower cost. This can include accident and emergency services, but not emergency treatment if you're admitted into a hospital.


Now Health UK specifically caters to expatriate individuals and families who require a global and more comprehensive level of cover when it comes to healthcare. All Now Health plans are designed with benefits that cover eligible medical emergency treatment if you're admitted as an in-patient or day-patient at a hospital or a facility. Depending on your chosen plan, you can also have additional options such as dental care and maternity benefits, and even full underwriting for pre-existing conditions.


As Now Health UK offers both regional or worldwide coverage based on your chosen plan, you're guaranteed exceptional care and service should you need medical treatment or even just to answer any concerns. The company's global customer service team speaks multiple languages and is available 24/7 to address customer concerns anywhere in the world.
