Do I Need Private Medical Insurance For The Channel Islands?
If you are simply visiting the islands for a short period of time, such as a holiday or business trip then you do not need Private Health Insurance. However, you should seriously consider taking out a travel insurance policy to prevent the risk of incurring medical expenses whilst visiting the islands, as the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) does not apply here. As a resident of the Channel Islands, there are schemes and services available which can reduce the cost of medical treatment. However, they do not have their own version of the NHS so for proper peace of mind a comprehensive private medical insurance policy is highly advisable. Quick Quote
