IPT added on top of health insurance premium



I’ve been insured via a private health insurance company for 2 years now and am about to renew for a third. The invoice that came in has the IPT (12%) added on top of the premium. This hasn’t been this way for previous year.

When you ask for a quote in their website, the figure shown does not include the IPT, and IPT is actually not mentioned anywhere.

Can you please advise if this practice is legal? The IPT come to nearly £600 and I understand that it needs to be paid, but it seems sneaky to suddenly move it out of the premium and making it a separate item.
