Keep your health insurance coverage after leaving a job

If you currently have a health insurance policy through your place of work, you may have the option to continue your health insurance coverage on an individual policy. This may be particularly beneficial if your current workplace policy meets your private healthcare needs and continuing under a similar* policy with the same insurer can offer a hassle-free way to avoid a break in your cover.
1.

What happens to my health insurance if I leave my job?

When your terms of employment end, so to will your health insurance cover, unless otherwise stipulated in your contract and agreed by the insurer.

To ensure there is no break in cover, and to protect your existing underwriting terms, you should aim for your new personal policy to be arranged by the time you leave employment.
2.

Can I stay on the same health insurance policy after leaving my job?

If you would like your personal policy to be as close as possible to your workplace policy, you can contact your provider or appoint us to negotiate the terms on your behalf.

By getting in touch, we can advise you on the best approach to take and answer any questions you have. We can assist you in transferring to a similar* personal version of your workplace policy where possible.

1.

When should I notify my provider?

If you want to continue with the same health insurance provider, you should get in touch as soon as you know your employment is ending. Some providers, such as Bupa, ask to be notified at least 3 months in advance, and allowing more time to compare your options may help you to make the right decision.
2.

Should I look for alternatives?

If there are any elements of your current workplace health insurance policy that you are not benefiting from, or it does not offer cover for, we would advise that you compare your health insurance options to find a more suitable policy for you and your circumstances.
