Bupa celebrates success with Moneyfacts 5 star award

04 April 2018

Bupa’s Comprehensive Bupa By You policy has been awarded a 5 star rating – the highest possible score - by Moneyfacts, the independent financial research company. 

Bupa By You offers health insurance customers a choice of cover for the costs of private healthcare. Customers can adapt their health insurance to suit their needs and select a policy which covers private diagnosis, treatment and aftercare for all their eligible medical needs or a policy that only covers private treatment. 

The policy includes access to Direct Access – its self referral service – which gives customers faster access to health specialists for cancer, cataracts, mental health and musculoskeletal conditions such as neck and back ache. 

When customers take out a policy they are able to choose from a selection of hospitals where they wish to receive treatment and the level of cancer cover they would find valuable. Customers can also add an out-patient limit and choose the excess option1 which best suits their budget which makes it easier for people to choose private healthcare for their families. 

Richard Washington, Director of Product and Proposition, Bupa UK comments: “We’re committed to providing our customers with fast access to high quality healthcare and treatment that meets their needs. It’s an honour our health insurance has been gived a 5-star rating, and to see everyone’s hard work recognised.” 

Notes to editors 
The Moneyfacts Private Medical Insurance Star Rating is based on the weighting of the most relevant product features of each health insurance policy.  

1Customers can choose an excess of £0, £100, £150, £200, £250 or £500
