Health Insurance

The Health Insurance Department (HID) provides affordable health insurance coverage for residents of Bermuda to assist with access to healthcare.

HID offers two health insurance plans, FutureCare and the Health Insurance Plan (HIP). Both are open to individuals and groups. 

Group plans are available for employers.  All employers are required to provide health insurance coverage for their employees and their employees’ non-employed spouses under the Health Insurance Act 1970. For more information about an employers’ health insurance responsibilities visit: Employers’ compliance with the Health Insurance Act 1970.

HID also enrolls persons 65 and older who are eligible for a Government subsidy to assist in paying for the cost of health services primarily provided in the hospital.  Those who are eligible will receive a Certificate of Entitlement (COE), which is granted based on status and how long you have been living in Bermuda before the date of application. Visit the Certificate of Entitlement* page for more information.

If you are a healthcare provider seeking reimbursement from HID for claims, find out how to register and submit claims on the HID Provider page.

In addition to the above plans, HID is responsible for managing the Mutual Reinsurance Fund, to which all insured people in Bermuda contribute, and processing the Government’s subsidy claims. These programmes support HID’s affordable health insurance plans.

The Department does not manage Government Employees Health Insurance (GEHI). HID’s services are only for residents of Bermuda who are not employees of the Government of Bermuda.
