A major rise in the price paid for health insurance coverage is due in 2019, raising the total cost of a year’s coverage by at least £3,000.
The rise in prices will affect the cost of health cover to the average worker.
The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (Nice) is expected to publish a review of the NHS and NHS England this year.
The report, due later this year, will look at how much it costs to provide health coverage to a large number of people.
What does the NHS charge?
The NHS says its average price for a year of coverage is £1,097.
A number of factors, including how long the person is expected for treatment and the level of their health, will determine how much coverage they get.
This can vary across patients, depending on their age and health status.
If a person is under 65, the average price is £831.
If they have diabetes, or if they have a condition that can cause problems with their blood sugar, they will pay a premium of up to £2,300.
People who have been diagnosed with cancer or an illness will also pay more.
The NHS has been using this average for the last year to decide how much to charge people.
But if the NHS increases its price by more than £3 in 2019 and 2020, the amount of money people will pay could increase by as much as £2.5bn.
This could mean that people who were on the low end of the cost scale could pay more for health coverage, or it could mean their average premium could go up.
In a statement, Nice said: We have not set a target for 2019, but we have been working closely with NHS England to find ways to increase the amount people are expected to pay to cover their healthcare needs.
This includes making people more aware of the price differences between private and public schemes.
Who pays more?
People who are older than 65 are expected have the highest average premium.
Those who are 65 and older and live in London or in the south-east will pay the highest amount.
But the NHS will pay an average of £1.15 for each £1 they spend, compared to £1 for every £1 spent by people living in the other two regions.
In 2020, this means people in London will pay £2k more than those in the north-east.
If the NHS raises its price in 2019 by more then £3 a year, it will mean people living across the UK could pay between £7,000 and £14,000 more.
Some of this could be paid back in benefits.
A survey of 1,000 people conducted by the NHS found that the average annual premium for people aged over 65 would rise from £1m to £4m.
It could mean the average cost of coverage to older people could rise by between £2m and £5m.
What will happen to the £10m in extra NHS funding?
This will come out of the budget to replace the NHS Trust Fund, which is expected in the next parliament.
NHS England says it will use this money to provide new treatments and to fund other services that have been promised in the Budget.
Some will be paid for through the £5bn funding for the NHS Improvement Fund.
Others will be funded by the new health and social care levy, which will be brought in in 2019.
What happens to the NHS payback scheme?
In 2019, NHS England will continue to provide the first-come, first-served NHS pay-back scheme.
It will make up the shortfall in the Trust Fund by increasing the rate of payment for people in receipt of social care.
This will be available for all people in the system.
In 2018, the NHS paid a £1bn payback to the public service.
But in 2019 it will pay out the money from the pay-out to people in other health care schemes.
The extra money will be put into the new NHS paydown scheme.
What if I can’t get the extra money?
If you can’t afford to pay the full amount in 2019 due to the inflation and cuts to benefits, then you can apply to have the money back.
People with incomes above the poverty line, or who are unemployed, will have to pay more than people who earn the minimum wage, £6.20 an hour.
It’s not clear whether people who live in England will get extra payments, or whether they will be exempt from paying the full £10bn.
Who will pay more?
NHS England has set out the changes it expects to make in 2020.
It says that people in England who are under 65 will see their average annual income rise by £4,600, from £6,000 to £7.50.
This is in line with the inflation of the last two years.
However, this will still leave people with incomes below £60,000 in England with a gap of £4k.
People aged over 75 will see an increase of £3.5m
