†Terms and conditions apply.

As a contractor, you want to enjoy all the benefits that come from leaving permanent employment. However, with this freedom comes a risk that your income could be disrupted by a routine operation or unforeseen illness. Every day that you are not able to work is a day’s income lost.
In the UK, we benefit from one of the best healthcare systems in the world. But sometimes you need more, like avoiding long waiting lists for surgery or getting access to cancer treatments not readily available on the NHS. You want the freedom to choose what’s best for you. Some health insurers limit where, when and who can treat you. WPA believe that’s wrong. It’s your health, so you should be in control.
Having a tailored health insurance policy in place, from a specialist health insurer, gives you the peace of mind that, should you fall ill, you can avoid NHS waiting lists, reduce your time away from work and have treatment at a time that is convenient for you. With access to an extensive choice of hospitals and specialists throughout the UK, you can get back to doing what you do best – running your business.
