Tick 'yes' when purchasing your insurance. 

You need to check that your private medical insurance covers you for medical treatment in the country/ies you intend travelling to. Don’t forget to check if family members or anyone else you are getting travel insurance for are covered too. Then, if covered, when purchasing your insurance select ‘yes’ when asked if you have private health insurance and tick the box to confirm that you are eligible for a discounted policy.
