Saga have been serving their customers in the United Kingdom since 1959. They work with the demographic of those who are 50 years of age or more, offering them a variety of services, including in the financial and insurance sectors. One such service is health insurance.
Saga offers five different policy options to their health insurance customers ranging from the most basic package, ‘support’ and ending with ‘super’, their most comprehensive option.
The main differences in the policies are what they offer. For example, with the ‘super’ package, dental work can be covered. This option is not available on any other policy. Ambulance transport is available on the two most comprehensive packages, but not on the other three.
However, a real perk of Saga health insurance policies, the option to have a consultation with a General Practitioner by telephone and their health information line, is available to holders of all policies. This is in addition to the speed of access to healthcare which comes as part of being a private patient.
You can also add additional extras to your policy, including for customers who suffer from hypertension and those who wish to add extra cover for cancer.
It is very easy to get a quote for Saga’s health insurance policy online or by telephone. Note, however, that the two most basic policy options, ‘saver’ and ‘support’ are only available for purchase by telephone.
Current and potential customers can view their policy information and any quote details via the online portal on the company website, ‘My Saga’.
You can easily make a claim by calling the Saga team as soon as you have been referred to a specialist by your General Practitioner.
The company are passionate about promoting the health of their customers. Therefore, they also publish articles on how to maintain your health later in life, including advice on exercise and diet.
There is also an extremely well-stocked bank of ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ on the site.
However, if you are in need of further information you can contact Saga directly on their itemised health insurance phone line.
It is worth checking the website to see if there are any discounts or offers available to you. For example, Saga is currently offering new customers 2 months free of charge on their new policy, if you use their preferred payment method and your policy lasts for one year.
