Private Healthcare Insurance for contractors from WPA

WPA Health Insurance for Contractors


As a contractor, you want to enjoy all of the benefits that come from leaving permanent employment. However, with this freedom comes a risk that your income could be disrupted by a routine operation or unforeseen illness. Every day that you are not able to work is a day’s income lost.

Health insurance offers you the peace of mind that, should you fall ill, you can avoid NHS waiting lists, reduce your time away from work and access an extensive choice of hospitals and specialists throughout the UK.

ContractorUK are able to provide preferential rates* for you and your family when purchasing health insurance from WPA.

Flexible Health – tailored to suit your needs and budget

WPA’s range of Flexible Health Policies (Essentials, Premier and Elite) offer three different levels of cover with the flexibility to tailor your options.

In addition, if you are under 60 years old, self-employed or a member of a WPA recognised profession, you can benefit from even lower premiums. For qualifying criteria and their list of recognised professions visit

There are a range of joining (underwriting) terms available and no medical examination is required. A maximum joining age of 65 applies. Pre-existing and long term medical conditions may not be covered.

Special Offer

Add your partner or family member free for a year or receive a 25% discount for single cover policies. 

As a ContractorUK reader an ongoing 10% discount will also apply in the subsequent years.
