Private medical cover: Simple, tailored and affordable

AXA PPP Healthcare logo
Health Select from AXA PPP healthcare gives you the option to build a package with cover that suits you.

You get a core package of private health benefits, and then choose Add-ons to get the exact cover you want – including a choice of three different levels of out-patient cover. Finally, there are further options available such as adding an excess so that you can tailor the cost of your plan to suit your needs.

The core Health Select plan includes all the basics: 
  • Hospital charges for day or overnight treatment.
  • Specialist fees when you're in hospital for the day or overnight.
  • Surgical procedures as an out-patient.
  • Cancer treatment, including radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
  • Computerised tomography (CT, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography (PET) scans
  • 24-hour access to an 0800 telephone helpline offering expert health information from experienced healthcare professionals. This can include nurses, pharmacists, midwives and counsellors.

For more details of what AXA PPP healthcare’s plans do and don’t cover call 0800 313 4936.

AXA PPP healthcare believe that private medical care should be accessible to everyone. They understand that people have different needs and budgets and that’s why they have options to help you tweak your subscription so it’s right for you.

Add an excess

  • Choose between £100, £250 or £500 excess.
  • The higher the excess, the lower your price. You only pay the excess if you make any claims they cover, and you only pay it once per person in each membership year.

Choose a 6 week option

This option is a great way to save on your subscription yet still avoid long NHS waiting times. The 6 week option means that if in-patient or day-patient treatment or any surgical procedure is available on the NHS within six weeks from the date it should take place then you will use the NHS. However, if the wait for treatment is longer than six weeks then you can go private straight away.

Further savings when you renew

At renewal, if you haven’t made a claim you will be entitled to a further discount each year, up to 65%. However, if you do make a claim your discount will be reduced
