Do I need a health insurance plan as a self-employed business?
Private health cover for the self-employed isn’t a legal obligation, but it can make a real difference to your health and financial position.
When you’re a self-employed business, you’re not eligible for statutory sick pay and you’ll usually lose any cover that came with your last job.
It’s not just serious illness that impacts your ability to earn. Taking time off with a knee or back injury can be common. Getting checked out quickly, or accessing physio sessions, can make all the difference.
Also, if there is something wrong, a self-employed health insurance plan can help you get seen faster, by an approved consultant and hospital.
