We’re committed to supporting everyone’s mental health

We're all unique, and we all need different levels of mental health support at times. Whether you have mental health cover with us or not, you can turn to us for help.

Every year, one in four adults1 are dealing with mental health problems.
So no one should feel ashamed.
See how we’ve supported some Bupa customers on their own mental health journeys.

Mental health support as part of Bupa health insurance

As of November 2019 this analysis is based on internally conducted review of the consumer health insurance market using publicly available information from the major insurers in the UK consumer health insurance market. Combined, Bupa, AXA PPP, Aviva and Vitality hold approximately 90% of the Gross Written Premium income of UK PMI providers. Refers to standard mental health cover when this is included in the selected consumer health insurance product. See PDF How we compare: Individuals (PDF 1MB)

††Direct Access telephone services are available as long as the symptoms are covered under the policy. If your cover excludes conditions you had before your policy started, we’ll ask you to provide evidence from your GP that your symptoms are not pre-existing for a period of up to two years from policy start date (or up to five years in the case of mental health). We can then refer you to a consultant or therapist through the Direct Access service. Always call us first to check your eligibility.

‡‡To support addictions we fund one addiction treatment programme per membership lifetime. To support chronic mental health conditions (conditions which recur) we have removed restrictions on cover from June 2019. If you joined Bupa, or renewed your policy, before June 2019, there will be still be restrictions on chronic mental health cover until your next renewal. Please call us if you would like to discuss the benefit limits on your policy.
