25 Sep Why should I consider health insurance if I’m self-employed?
The number of people choosing to become self-employed is steadily increasing. Last year, statistics showed 15% of the working population in the UK were self-employed. Shockingly though, the majority do not have any private health insurance.
A lot of people perceive private health insurance as a luxury, but in reality, it proves to be an affordable and worthwhile investment, especially to those who are self-employed.
Many self-employed people would struggle financially, should they have to take long-term sick leave, without having the right protection in place. Along with other benefits, private health insurance is designed to give you access to a quicker diagnosis and treatment, than what you would receive on the NHS.
