†Open Referral – Your cover depends on you following the Open Referral pre-authorisation process. This means that when your GP refers you for a consultation or treatment you must ask your GP for an Open Referral letter that details the care you need but is not addressed to a named consultant, healthcare practitioner or treatment facility. You must then call us to pre-authorise your consultation or treatment. We will provide you with a choice of consultants, therapists or recognised facilities (as applicable) that are covered under your benefits.

1 When you use a Bupa recognised consultant and a recognised facility from the choice we provide to you at pre-authorisation.

2 Please refer to membership guide for full list of general exclusions.
