“Not Recommended ”

Not Recommended

The Health Insurance Specialists persuaded me to move from my Health Insurance Provider Aviva to National Friendly by offering extremely attractive terms which were: -

Lower monthly premiums for better cover.

Monthly premiums that would not increase for the next five years even if I were to make a claim and that the only monthly price increase at renewal would be due to age and that the increase would only be between £2.00 to £4.00 per month. I was categorically informed verbally and in writing of this benefit.

At the annual premium review after year one, my monthly premium increased by nearly 20% despite no changes in circumstances and no claims.

When I complained to National Friendly and sent them a copy of the ‘attractive terms’ offered by their broker The Health Insurance Specialists, they replied ‘that they were disappointed to read the content as it contained a number of inaccurate points and that they were sorry that I was provided with this information’.

I am not blaming National Friendly who promptly dealt with my complaint and replied in a very timely manner, but they should accept some responsibility as it was their broker who was representing them to get the sale.

National Friendly suggested I contact the broker directly for them to review and respond to my complaint and take any appropriate action to put things right for me, which I did but despite
several emails and telephone calls to The Health Insurance Specialists I have not had either an acknowledgement or the courtesy of a reply and therefore have had no choice but leave negative reviews on social media and online review platforms.

I have also referred my complaint to the Financial Ombudsman and in the unlikely event that my complaint is not upheld, I will not hesitate to take further legal action through the courts.

I would suggest you avoid The Health Insurance Specialists at all costs.
