BUPA UK cover Corporate and Individual
For getting the help you need faster
It’s always better to get to the bottom of a worrying symptom as quickly as possible. That’s why if you’re experiencing symptoms relating to muscle, bone or joint problems, mental health, cancer or cataracts you can call us for direct access advice usually without the need to see your GP first.
Our dedicated team of trained advisers will discuss your symptoms and be able to give you clear advice on what to do next. Depending on your health insurance cover and the nature of your symptoms, we could even refer you to a consultant there and then.††
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 five years in the case of mental health) before we can refer you to a consultant or therapist through the Direct Access service. Always call us first to check your eligibility.
For access to breakthrough cancer drugs and treatment
You’ll have access to cancer drugs in the UK that are licensed for your condition, even if they are not NICE approved or available on the NHS, as long as they are evidence-based.† We also employ medical experts to evaluate trial drugs that aren’t yet licensed and can approve them for use often within 24 hours. It’s all because we want you to receive the best care available.
†Applies to eligible cancer drugs and treatments covered by your policy.
For fast access to treatment
We want to make sure you can get the help you need as quickly as possible. That’s why we can give you fast access to treatment with our health insurance.
