Haven’t you heard? Shopping locally benefits you, your family and the local economy.
You like eating. It’s very possible that you prefer fresh food, to that which has had to travel long distances to get to your plate and as a consequence has less nutritional value and less taste. It’s not just food produce that benefits from being grown and bought locally.
You may not want to think about private medical insurance as much as you do a crisp, juicy, local-apple. But the principle is the same. There are many hidden benefits!
Shiny on the surface
Some apples seem so shiny that you can see your face in them. They’ve been grown in the UK, flown to places like South Africa to be polished and then returned to supermarkets in the UK. Compare the taste with a rustic, local apple from a Northern Ireland farm that you’d probably need to wash before eating and the difference in taste would be incredible (the local apple has more flavour).
Health Insurance is the same. You might be tempted by the shininess of big brands or comparison sites from the mainland UK – but they aren’t as tasty as a local provider. They aren’t as flavoursome and they won’t have as many long term benefits.
We find that customers want to know where their money goes. Every family, business and individual has different requirements and questions about health insurance. So, it’s important that you can pick up the phone and ask any questions about getting a quote, eligibility and of course the different costs for different packages. And if the information can be delivered by a local adviser, based in Northern Ireland, even better.
When you need to make a claim… it’s good to know your claim will be handled quickly and efficiently by a local claims expert who can:
- Recommend to you medical specialists, ensuring that you don’t have to travel far.
- Source the quickest access to treatment and book appointments for you (they know the local area).
- Talk you through the entire process of making a claim so that you can get treatment as quickly as possible.
The “hidden” benefits
Flavour and more nutrients are benefits that we often don’t consider when we select things based on appearance alone.
Making a private health insurance claim and needing specialist medical attention is one thing; where you are treated is another all together.
With H3 Insurance, you can get access to private casualty, meaning you skip queues at A & E and can be seen by a medical specialist straight away. What’s more, you’ll be treated at the five star Kingsbridge Private Hospital. The private casualty cover is the only one of it’s kind in the UK, meaning that if you are in Northern Ireland, there’s no need to travel for specialist treatment.
At Kingsbridge Private Hospital, you can be seen for sprains and strains, breaks and fractures, cuts and wounds, minor burns, minor ear, nose & throat issues.
Understanding Your Business Needs
If you are looking for company health insurance then you’ll understand the importance of partnering with businesses who know the local economy and more importantly, understand your needs. Advisers who can meet with you face to face if required, or are always available to talk you through your requirements in plain English.
Like farm goods, or gifts, if you shop for insurance locally, you are supporting the local economy. With the personal touch comes better customer service.
So, when it comes to health insurance, it’s important to look beyond the shininess and savour the full flavour of something more… local.
