Customer Question

i have paid for private health insurance (for more than one year) i needed to see a consultant for a health concern in May 2020 and due to the pandemic there consultant services were not in operation (understandably). I requested a refund on my premiums as i am paying for a service i am not able to have and they refused. Vitality health. I have logged a complaint but im not hopeful. Worth taking to the ombudsman?

Hello,

Yes, you may escalate the matter to the Financial Ombudsman Service. It is free, so you have nothing to lose but a lot to gain if they find in your favour.
