Best treatment for your health
Health insurance will guarantee that you get treatment not only quickly but by the best private doctors. When you are covered by health insurance, you can focus on recovering from an illness or accident without worrying about high treatment and medication expenses. Health insurance allows you to choose exactly the extent and optional cover that you want.
Important coverage against disability or death is also provided by living allowance insurance and its lump-sum compensation which, should the worst happen, will enable you or your loved ones to go on.
Health insurance that suits your needs
Choose exactly the extent and optional cover that you want for your health insurance. The best cover is provided by comprehensive health insurance, which is much more than sickness insurance.
Often general practitioner consultations can be taken care of by your occupational health care or at your own cost, in which case health insurance complementing your occupational health care may be sufficient. Health insurance will cover medication, surgery and more expensive examinations, such as MRIs and related doctor’s consultations, but any other appointments with doctors are excluded.
On the other hand, if you want to insure your health with an accident insurance, you can choose between two health insurance policies that cover the treatment of accidental injuries. We recommend a more comprehensive accident insurance policy that covers not only accidents but also the medical treatment expenses of the commonest illness-related injuries.
If something happens to me, I know that will have quick access to treatment and I don't have to care about the money.
Therapy, support for recovery, and cover for sport
You can include into health insurance optional covers that are only available from us. We also cover physiotherapy expenses, also as an alternative to surgery. You can also fall ill mentally, so it is comforting to know that health insurance also covers psychotherapy expenses. Health insurance also covers expenses caused by a carer or home adaptations in order for you to live at home despite your illness or when recovering from an injury.
Health insurance always covers outdoor exercise and conditioning. If you go in for a sport in a sports club or take part in competitions or matches, you can receive coverage for competitive sports either by adding athletes' covers to your health insurance or by taking out a separate Sports Cover through your club. Sports Insurance may also be necessary if you go in for a high-risk sport – in that case check your health insurance coverage with our customer service.
Calculate health insurance rates
How costly is a health insurance policy? The price of health insurance depends on matters such as the covers you choose to include in your personalised insurance policy. Private Health Insurance by OP always includes medical treatment cover in the event of illness and/or injury, and you can extend the policy with supplementary medical treatment cover and dental cover. Health insurance rates are adjusted, depending on your choices.
Health insurance also depends on the amount of deductible you choose for your policy. By adjusting the deductible, you choose how much you pay out of pocket in the event of an illness or injury. The higher the deductible, the lower the policy rate. However, keep in mind that the cheapest health insurance is not necessarily the best or truly the most inexpensive in the event of an illness or injury. See our recommendations and your health insurance rate by using the the calculator in the link below.
An adult’s health insurance and living allowance insurance is granted as a rule on the basis of a health declaration. A health declaration can be filled in online, and it is used to determine whether the policy can be granted.
A policy may nevertheless be granted even if you are not entirely healthy. This means that any pre-existing condition may affect the extent of coverage offered.
It is important that you do not terminate any existing policy until you have received a decision that a new policy has been granted.
