Bupa is offering a new product, NHS Cancer Cover Plus, but only to corporate health insurance customers.
The new cover is designed to fill NHS gaps. Employees will be funded for diagnostic tests and consultations, but undergo treatment on the NHS. If their consultant recommends treatment unavailable on the NHS, they will be treated privately.
Bupa has published a cancer promise outlining the principles of its cover, to ensure clarity about the different policies it offers.
