What are the age limits for Child Health Insurance?

Free Child Health Insurance Cover

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.
