At Bupa we understand you want to make informed decisions about the cover you provide for your employees. Our cancer cover options give you the flexibility to do just that. You can also be assured that whichever option you choose, Bupa only champions the best possible patient journey. This means that once your employees are on a particular treatment path, be it NHS or private, they will never be left without Bupa support.
Bupa offers three simple cancer cover options which you will find adjacent. Your Bupa Account Manager will be happy to give you more information or further guidance on the right decision for you and your company.
Full Cancer Cover◊
Option 1 offers you and your employees our highest level of cancer cover. Our most comprehensive option covers employees at all stages of cancer treatment even if the cancer spreads or returns, and even if palliative treatment is required. Full Cancer Cover members have access to Bupa’s unique network of specialist cancer centres (breast, bowel and gynaecological), which guarantees treatment by an expert cancer team.
It is our priority to ensure that each and every member is able to follow the treatment path recommended by their consultant, so Option 1 covers treatment in both NHS and private hospitals. It also provides access to help and advice from our specialist Oncology Support Team.
NHS Cancer Cover Plus
This is a cost-effective option which allows you to keep subscriptions down, while ensuring you and your employees have access to the cancer treatment recommended.
NHS Cancer Cover Plus covers you and your employees for all tests and consultations up to a diagnosis of cancer. Following that, if the treatment recommended by the consultant can be provided on the NHS, the patient will continue their treatment under NHS care, with additional telephone support from the Bupa Oncology Support Team. If the NHS is unable to provide the treatment recommended by the patient’s consultant, the patient’s cancer can be treated privately.
Bupa will cover up to the diagnosis of cancer but then provide no further financial benefit. However, members will still have access to support and advice from the Bupa Oncology Support Team.
* Calls will be recorded and may be monitored.
Calls from landlines are free, however, mobile phone providers may charge.
Options indicated by (G) can only be configured at a sub group level where multiple groups exist within an organisation, providing the overall membership size for the organisation is above 700 members and the specific sub group that the exclusive option relates to contains at least 50 members. In these instances the sub group with the option(s) will have to be priced separately which will need to be requested by the Account Manager when completing the quote request. All other options can be configured at a product level.
◊All cancer treatment costs are paid in full when patients use a fee assured consultant and hospitals in their selected network.
