Insurance cover and mental health
Many people find that buying insurance provides financial security and peace of mind. For example, you could get insurance to cover medical costs in case you become unwell, or travel insurance in case you lose your passport or something is stolen while you’re on holiday. There are lots of different types of insurance to cover a wide range of situations – and some types of insurance are compulsory, like car insurance.
- Our page on getting the right cover offers guidance on how to get the insurance cover you want.
- Our pages on your legal rights and complaints and legal action explain how you can protect yourself from unlawful discrimination by insurance providers.
Remember: all insurance providers have to comply with regulations to make sure they make fair assessments about who to cover, how much to charge, and when to pay out for a claim. You can find more information about these guidelines on the Association of British Insurers (ABI) website. MIND
