Let's start by finding out how many people you want covered on the policy

"Single" policies have one adult on them. "Couple" policies are for you and your spouse/partner.

You may add up to 6 dependant children. They must be all under 21 (or 26 if they are registered students).

All new applicants must be under the age of 65. Applicants or their dependants over 54 cannot apply for hospital or funeral cover but may still apply for day-to-day cover. Refer to our T&Cs.

What type of medical cover are you interested in?

We only offer funeral cover in combination with our Hospital or Day-to-Day benefits.
