Health Insurance FAQ
Please see below for a list of common questions about our policies. If you have a question that is not answered below, please Contact Us.
What does private medical insurance cover?
Private medical insurance is health insurance, which provides cover for private medical treatment for an acute condition (a disease, illness or injury that is likely to respond quickly to treatment.)
What are the advantages of private healthcare?
As a private patient you can often choose when treatment will take place, the specialist who treats you, and the hospital. You will usually have the privacy of an en-suite room complete with TV and other home comforts. Should you choose to take up a full refund plan, a direct settlement facility is offered for day-case/in-patient treatment in any of our participating hospitals/clinics.
How can I purchase a Sana medical insurance plan?

I am already insured elsewhere, can I transfer my policy with you?
Yes you can however, you will still be required to complete a simple application form and go through the underwriting procedure.
