Changing your Health Insurance Provider

ARCO members should be aware of a possible pitfall in changing their Health Insurance Provider. If you are contemplating a switch to a new provider you should ensure, before you finalise any such move, that your new cover will not be affected by a lack of recognition by the new provider of your past cover; whether that be with your old provider or through your military service.
