Living in the UK is no walk in a park. The increasing cost of living has put many formerly prosperous households into counting their steps, every move they make. In such a time, being diagnosed with an illness would be the last thing an average person would want. If you go on trying to insure yourself against any such mishap, you do not find relief either because, well let us agree, these policies are not pocket-friendly. Therefore, if you need a plan in this environment, you might have to walk yourself to affordability. Here, we discuss a few steps you might want to take, in order to decrease the cost of your PMI.

Firstly, and most importantly, turn to a healthier life style. What we mean by this is quitting smoking, turning to healthier foods and working out. All of these would show as good health in your Health Assessment. The most important of this is your smoking habits. All insurance providers give high level of importance to the smoking habits of the applicants. If you smoke, there is a high chance that your health is not up to the mark. What makes it worse are all the possible lungs, throat and other diseases that might follow this filthy habit of yours. This is the last thing you need. To keep the cost of your plan in budget, you must show the providers that the chance that you may need to claim the insurance is quite low. This would contribute to a policy, which is much more affordable. Bad health conditions automatically ring bells in the insurance providers’ ears, telling them that there is a high chance of insurance claim. As a result, you see a surge in the cost of the premium payments. If you are healthier, and do not have habits that endanger your wellbeing, the cost you pay is likely to be well within your budget.

Next, you must ensure that you only take in what you actually need. There should be absolutely no room left for unnecessary inclusions. If you are single, what you need to do is unmark the option, which allows you to include children protection. This inclusion would only serve to further the cost of the plan, without serving you any benefit, since you do not have any children. However, if you do have children, it may be better to exercise this option, instead of getting your children a separate plan. Similarly, any inclusions, which are based on family or partner-related cover would be useless for a single person. Also, you could try and be as less choosy as you can be. If you actually have a consultant you must be assigned to, then perhaps it is worth it. However, if you do not, choosing a specific consultant would increase the degree of personalization of your plan, which in turn, furthers its cost. This also applies to hospitals and room choices.

Lastly, what you can also do to keep the premium well within your means is opt for a shared risk policy. What this would do is entitle the insurer to only pay for a fraction of the cost, rest of which would fall on you. If you believe you can actually afford a percentage of the cost, this is probably the way to go. The less they have to pay, the less they will charge you, in terms of premium payments.
