Each story refers to mental health cover and reflects the experience of one particular Bupa member. Names have been changed to protect the privacy of the member. The cover you choose will have specific terms and conditions, and pre-existing conditions are normally excluded.

Most of our policies (with mental health benefits) cover one addiction treatment plan per membership lifetime. If additional treatment was needed, we could fund out-patient addiction treatment - subject to available benefit limit in the policy year. If you are unsure of your benefit limits, please refer to your policy documents or call us.
