What are the age limits for Child Health Insurance?

Our Generation Child Health Insurance cover is available to individuals from the age of 90 days, up to their 18th birthday.

We can also cover up to 6 children on one easy to manage policy.

For all Private Healthcare policies for children only, we will require a parent/guardian aged over 18 to be added on to the policy on behalf of the child as a third party administrator.

Each policy can add up to three authorised parties.

At General & Medical, we also offer a wide range of other bespoke Medical Insurance solutions.

These have been designed to meet the needs of individuals, families, professional or amateur sports players and teams, associations, affinity groups and businesses large and small, both in the UK and internationally.

24/7 GP Advice, plus Health & Wellbeing Support

24 Hour GP Advice

No matter what age they are, when your child is poorly it can be a worrying time. Luckily, when you have a Generation Healthcare policy with General & Medical, you also have access to a GP at any time of the day or night. 24-hours a day, 7 days a week, a GP can be on hand to offer consultations, diagnosis and prescription* services. They can even just give you the peace of mind that you may need. (*Charges may apply.)

Generation Healthcare was designed with your child’s wellbeing in mind. That's why we’re also pleased to include free 24-hour Health and Wellbeing Services as part of your policy, offering additional support whenever your child may need it, at no extra cost.

The Health & Wellbeing Services are included with all of our Private Health Insurance policies, and are designed to provide advice and support for personal and professional issues on a wide range of subjects. This includes telephone counselling, online health checks, self-help, medical information, lifestyle programmes and everyday support.
