Comments on cancer and health insurance

Which? logo

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.”
