Lee Tillcock, Managing Editor of Investment Life & Pensions Moneyfacts, said:

“We are all very aware of the pressures currently being placed upon the NHS as the demand for quality, yet affordable, treatment options continues to grow. The need for private medical insurance (PMI) has arguably never been greater. While a number of innovations and a greater range of additional benefits have made PMI a more compelling product, they have also made it arguably more complex. The Moneyfacts Private Medical Insurance Star Ratings help customers direct their focus and make an informed decision, by highlighting the most comprehensive products on the market.”
