Switching health insurance provider

At Saga, we offer a comprehensive range of plans for the over 50s. If you're switching from another private medical insurance provider, you may be able to benefit from a higher level of cover at a lower price when you start a new policy with us.

8 out of 10 new customers saved money when they switched to us from other providers, based on 223 customers surveyed in 2023.

Why should you switch to Saga?

  • You could save money on your current policy

  • Saga GP Service – 24/7 access, 365 days a year, from anywhere in the world to a practising GP who can discuss any health concerns, as well as arranging private prescriptions and providing open referrals to a specialist if appropriate

  • Our customers rated our customer service 9 out of 10 on average (based on customers surveyed in 2023)

  • You could earn up to 60% No Claim Discount

  • Our unique 4-week wait option – if the NHS waiting time for your treatment is over 4 weeks we'll arrange for you to be seen immediately in a private hospital - unlike the six weeks offered by many other providers. However, if the NHS can provide the treatment you need locally within 4 weeks, you'll be treated by the NHS. This option is also one of the ways in which you can reduce your price

  • We have over 30 years of experience providing health insurance cover

Company health insurance

Many people want to keep the security of private medical insurance (previously provided by employers) when they change jobs, retire or set up their own business. We have a range of options to suit you and your budget and what’s more, you can personalise your plan to keep the price down or improve your cover.

That's when having one of Saga's range of health plans really pays, providing you with fast access to medical investigations and treatment plus a number of money-saving options.
