Aviva has launched Speedy Diagnostics, a new low cost private health insurance policy giving customers the peace of mind that they have prompt access to specialist consultations and diagnostic tests.
Key benefits of Speedy Diagnostics include:
No overall maximum benefit limit
Access to specialist consultations for diagnostic purposes
Cover for diagnostic tests including CT and MRI scans, X-rays, pathology and physiological tests such as ECGs
Hospital costs typically associated with diagnostics as an in-patient or day-patient
Speedy Diagnostics also gives you access to 24 hour GP and stress counselling helplines and up to 40% discount off leisure club and gym membership.
Neal Archbold at Aviva says, “We have launched the policy in direct response to feedback that said people want a low cost alternative to full private health insurance that complements NHS provision. This does just that by helping to diagnose problems quickly and enabling customers to make informed decisions about next steps of treatment -whether it is provided by the NHS or on a self-pay basis.
The policy covers a gap in the market, people who do not want, or may not be able to afford, a full health insurance policy, but still want peace of mind that if they do become unwell the problem can be diagnosed promptly.
