They all have an option for medical & eye care, you just have to pay the supplement for the cover.

So many companies so impossible to say what's best without knowing exactly what you want and your budget. Most higher level plans include some dental cover.

Someone mentioned BUPA but they are very pricey for individual cover and other companies offer similar cover for a lower price (as you aren't paying for their advertising).

Contact me for more info.

I use this one for worldwide cover

www.international-health-cover.com

espcially as you get what you pay for, and ive been caught out on insurance before, so wouldnt want to risk it by save 20 quid.
Was dealt with by a really open and friendly french guy so would highly recommend - especially if you are contracting and bouncing around countries.

Actually they don't. For personal plans you usually pick a plan and that has set cover. Larger corporate plans can be tailored for specific requirements.

I found Amex Health Insurance (Aetna) to be reasonable (with no deductible) if you can live with £1K out-patient limit.
