Health insurance, often referred to as private medical insurance, gives you access to private healthcare for conditions that are covered by your policy and develop after your policy starts. One of the main benefits of health insurance is the speed of access to medical treatment.
Whether it’s getting the help you need faster, or for cancer care that helps get you there, we’re proud to give you nothing less than health expertise.
With Bupa, you’ll be covered for acute conditions (disease, illness or injury that are likely to respond quickly to treatment) that begin after your policy starts (pre existing conditions may affect what your policy will cover you for). The environment you’ll be treated in will vary depending on where you’re located and the type of treatment you need. You could be treated in a private hospital, health centre or private section of an NHS hospital.
There are general exclusions which are not covered as standard within our health insurance policies, for example the long-term treatment and monitoring of chronic conditions or cosmetic surgery.
We’ll also need to know about any pre-existing conditions or symptoms you may have. Pre-existing conditions won’t affect the cost of your policy, but they may affect what your policy will cover you for.
Details of the full list of exclusions can be found in the Bupa By You policy benefits and terms.
