Benenden Health - the affordable alternative to health insurance

Seen our TV advert?

Does our healthcare sound too good to be true for £10.25 a month? 

Benenden Health is affordable because we don’t replicate some of the great services that the NHS provide. 

We can offer speedy access to private healthcare when there’s a wait on the NHS.

Why haven’t I heard of Benenden Health?

With over 800,000 UK members and a 110 year history, you may be wondering why you might not have heard of Benenden Health. Here’s why and a bit more about us.

People powered healthcare

Waiting for healthcare can leave you feeling like simply a number. But what if, rather than being one of many, you were in fact supported by our membership of over 800,000?

Benenden Health was founded in 1905 with the purpose of people joining together to help pay for medical care when they might need it. This remains our core purpose today. We still exist for the sole benefit of our members and remain a not-for-profit society.
