Your Partner in Health and Life Insurance for South Africans Moving to the UK
Updated: Jun 29
Emigrating from South Africa to the United Kingdom can be an exciting and yet challenging journey, full of new experiences and opportunities. However, navigating the health insurance, life insurance, and income protection landscape in the UK might seem like a daunting task. That's where we, at Proactive Medical and Life Ltd, step in.
Established by a fellow South African who made the same journey 30 years ago, we understand the specific needs and concerns that you might have as a South African transitioning to life in the UK. Our experience allows us to anticipate the challenges you may face and provide proactive solutions tailored to your needs.
The UK's health insurance market differs significantly from that of South Africa. We know the ins and outs of these differences and will guide you through every step of the way, making sure you have the right protection. Our services extend beyond simply finding a policy that fits – we offer comprehensive advice, ensuring that you understand all aspects of your plan, and how it can best serve you.
We recognise the intricacy of handling pre-existing medical conditions when seeking health insurance. While this is a challenging topic, given the unique nature of each condition, it's crucial to comprehend your coverage from both an NHS and insurance standpoint upon your arrival in the UK. The undertaking to cover conditions is not commonly accepted by insurers, and this, of course, is entirely subject to underwriting and precise insurance requirements. We also recommend you consult with your immigration liaison to ensure a smooth transition into the NHS system.
Working both nationally and internationally, we have built strong relationships with a multitude of insurance providers. This enables us to offer you a wide range of options and find the best fit for you, whether it’s health insurance, life insurance, or income protection.
We have always been dedicated to closely working with South Africans making the move to the UK. Our tailored advice ensures that you not only find the right policy, but also feel comfortable and secure knowing you are adequately protected.
Once again, we recommend that individuals moving to England register with the National Health Service (NHS) to access a range of health services. You can find more information on how to do this on the NHS website.
At Proactive Medical and Life Ltd, we are more than just a service provider; we are a partner who stands by you in your journey, assuring peace of mind as you start your new chapter in the UK.
Before you travel, make sure you have travel insurance.
Your journey is ours too. Welcome to your new home.
