Tesco has launched three new levels of health cover in response to customers' feedback asking for a straightforward, flexible product. The three levels are; Operations and Procedures, Consultations and Tests, and Additional Therapies.

 

Each level will cover different aspects of a patient's journey and the products are designed to be straightforward and do what they say on the tin. Tesco Health Insurance cover starts with Operations & Procedures and customers can choose to add either one or two additional cover options: Consultations & Tests and Additional Therapies.
