This evening I read in the Runners World Guide To Running that some medical insurance policies include £800 worth of outpatient care, which is what a physiotherapist is classed as. The example given is for a 30 year old male living in Brighton would get this policy for £36.00 per month.
The article then goes on to say "so, if you pop to your GP and tell them about your problem and ask for a referral for insurance purposes they will write one happily."
I guess I am curious about all this because it possibly seems to good to be true. You could potentially get a course of physio treatment for a back issue and medical cover for less than the £45 to £50 a private session would cost should you go direct to the physio and pay for the treatment yourself. I am thinking I would be at the GP every other week asking to see a physio for stiff joints, shoulder pain, lower back issues or whatever.....
Has anyone first hand experience of this?
