Which? is pleased that private medical insurer Axa PPP has
joined rival Aviva in expanding its provision for cancer treatment.
Other major market players providing similarly high levels
of cancer cover include Bupa, Exeter Family Friendly and PruHealth – altogether
making around 89% of the market share.
Paul Davies at Which?, says “It is good to see Axa
following the lead of other insurers and offering higher levels of cancer cover
for its private medical insurance customers. However, with some prominent
insurers, such as WPA and Simplyhealth, still imposing time and monetary limits
on cancer treatment in their policies, there is still some room for
improvement. Check the limitations and exclusions before signing up, as the
terms and conditions of policies can vary considerably.”
