Pruhealth is a TOTAL waste of money, stick to Bupa

For the first time in 5 years, I changed my health insurance from Bupa to PruHealth. This was a big mistake. Lovely website and marketing Pruhealth, but scratch the surface and you are in trouble.

I needed a very simple health issue attended, and I found very little was covered by Pruhealth, their advice was incorrect and meant I have to visit the GP additional times to fulfill their needs (claim forms which originally weren't required to be completed by the GP then they were etc). In the end it was cheaper just to pay for the treatment myself and not claim at all. They achieved what they wanted.

Needless to say I have cancelled the worthless insurance and gone back to Bupa.

Do not fall for the pruhealth marketing.

Avoid at all costs

Like previous reviewer says - these guys are like the Ryanair of Health Insurance. I don't mind it for flights but when it comes to your health, they are really not worth the total hassle. I attempted to make a claim when I injured my shoulder playing football. My GP told me to go and see a physiotherapist immediately so they could stop the swelling and strap it appropriately. So I call up Pru Health for authorization.... then begins my impossible journey. They ask me about 20 questions then finally tell me that I need to fill out a ridiculously long form, give it to my doctor and then get them to fill it out and then FAX it to Pru Health. Then they will 'assess' the claim and get back to me 3 days later. 3 days!!!! I'm in pain, I don't need to wait 3 days while they 'assess' a letter from my GP saying I hurt my shoulder playing football.

I express this and they basically tell me that they need to make sure it's not a pre-existing injury. But I've signed a legal document where there is no mention of any right shoulder injuries (I've never had any problems).

I've been with BUPA and Simply Health for years before and never had any problems (not that I had to claim very regularly). The staff were much better and they didn't give me more hassle than I need when I'm clearly suffering and seeking medical care.

Then, as if it happened every day they offered to send a recording of the call to their complaints department. The complaints department called me later and spouted the same nonsense, adding in that even if they do 'assess' my claim, I'll need to use one of their physios or if I use my own I can only claim £30 per session. I don't know of any decent physios in London who are charging £30 or less.

Overall, as you can probably tell, I'd advise avoiding this company AT ALL COSTS. It's just not worth the low premiums they charge. I'd hate to think how I'd feel if I had a more serious condition.

The Ryanair of Private Health Insurance!

I've been with Pru Health Platinum level for 2 years and I'm now moving because I don't trust their immoral business model. These fools are the Ryanair of the Health Insurance world! Would you trust Michael O'Leary to see you through illness? Didn't think so! They change goal posts annually with fundamental information hidden away on page 30 of a 40 page booklet! Now all my hard work in the gym doesn't count against my premium because of a simple recording practice that worked fine in year 1 but has now been made redundant in year 2. Insurance will double next year unless I pay Pru £200 for new health checks. Tactics? I think so! Year 1 - 75% discount on gyms. Year 2 - 25% discount. Calculated? Remind you of your savings account?! Staff are rude and disrespectful. Nothing gets done after you put the phone down so resolve issue over the phone or give up! There's a special place in hell for Pru Health. Horrible Company!
