Bupa's cancer cover has just got even better as the health insurer has removed the benefit limits for out-patient cancer treatments.
The removal of the annual monetary out-patient benefit limits for eligible treatment is immediate. It applies to individual and small business policies.
Dr Paula Franklin, Bupa Health Insurance deputy medical director, says: "This change is driven by our desire to continue to provide extensive cover for cancer patients and give them access to high quality cancer care. In its report about private medical insurance cover for cancer, leading cancer information charity CancerBACUP highlighted the fact that Bupa is the only insurer to provide cover for patients at every stage of their cancer."
Bupa is also the only insurer to have accredited networks of specialist treatment centres for breast, bowel and gynaecological cancers. This means that customers can receive treatment as early as possible at the right place and delivered by an expert specialist team. All of this gives them the best possible chance of recovery.
For reassurance and support, members are also able to talk to one of the company's specialist oncology nurses at any time during their treatment.
Bupa covers all eligible hospital and consultant charges for chemotherapy, chemotherapy drugs, radiotherapy and surgery. Bupa members can also, with the agreement of their consultant, receive certain cancer treatments in the comfort of their own home via Bupa's agreement with 'Healthcare at Home', the UK's leading home healthcare provider.
