Health-on-Line now includes dependants up to the age of 25


Health-on-Line now allows parents to benefit from reduced rates for their children, until they are 25 years old. Health-on-Line recently revised its ruling surrounding the upper age limit for including dependants on their parent’s private medical insurance policy, and now offers dependant rates up to the age of 25.

Mike Dalby, Director of Health-on-Line, the online private medical insurance company, explains: “We have reviewed our approach to family & child only policies to make it easier for parents to look after their children’s wellbeing with health insurance. We had previously included children up to the age of 21, or 24 if they were in full time education. We have now modified our policies so that parents can keep their children on their policies up to the age of 25, provided they are not married.”

This change in age restrictions will allow older dependants to access the benefits private medical insurance offer at a much lower premium.

Dalby continues: “We see a constant demand from parents concerned with the NHS and wishing to protect their children, through health insurance. This recent change means parents can insure their older dependants for 50% less than if they had a separate policy of their own. This obviously makes private health insurance from Health-on-Line more affordable.”

A recent survey undertaken by Health-on-Line showed that Health-on-Line has been able to offer individuals savings of 32%* compared to existing policies, meaning that for households concerned about budgets, Health-on-Line can offer real savings without jeopardising the peace of mind that health insurance can provide.

“With our dependant rates for a 24 year old starting from as little as £10.97** a month, we are seeing an increasing number of parents who wish to benefit from the peace of mind health insurance provides when covering their children,” Dalby concludes.

* Savings based on a sample of quotations provided Jul 09 - Sept 09 where clients have verbally disclosed their existing premium
** Based on 24 year old, living outside of London with Essential Cover only
