Private health insurance helps to pay some or all your medical bills if you’re treated privately. It gives you a choice in the level of care you get, and how and when it’s provided.
The private health insurance for travel nursing staff is known for covering the medical costs and additional costs that they have to pay when taking some kind of medical treatment. It should be noted that this type of health insurance is mostly bought on an individual basis, at times it is also provided to families as a whole in benefits given by the companies to their workers.

Like all insurance, the cover you get from private medical insurance depends on the policy you buy and who you buy it from.
With private health insurance, you can get the following benefits:
- Specialist referrals. You can ask your GP to refer you to an expert or a specialist working privately to get a second opinion or specialist treatment.
- Get the scans you want. If the NHS delays a scan, or won’t let you have one, you can use your cover to pay for it.
- Reduce the waiting time. You can use your insurance to reduce the time you spend waiting for NHS treatment if your wait time is more than six weeks.
- Choose your surgeon and hospital. You can (in theory) choose a surgeon and hospital to suit your time and place, which isn’t possible on the NHS.
- Get a private room. You’re more likely to get a private room, rather than stay in an open ward.
