Private Medical Insurance and Health Cash Plans - UK - August 2011
This report provides a detailed analysis of the Private Medical Insurance Market (PMI) and the Health Cash Plan Market (HCP), and gives an overview into the current market conditions. There is a full breakdown of the market size in terms of value and volume, with a forecast included showing the expected growth during the next five years. Recent innovations and distributions are also analysed. The final sections of the report examines consumers’ views on private health cover, including ownership levels and attitudes towards the NHS and private healthcare.
Following the recession, both the private medical insurance (PMI) and health cash plan (HCP) markets have endured a difficult period. The repercussions were still present in 2010. In the private medical insurance market, the number of subscribers dropped by 1.14%, while the number of HCP contributors fell by almost 3%. Economic challenges have made it difficult to sell private health insurance to consumers, as confidence has been shaken by high unemployment and inflation. As the economic recovery has stuttered in 2011, neither the PMI nor HCP market will recover fully in 2011, and insurers’ focus has remained on consumer retention.
