Why choose Bupa?

  • For getting the help you need faster – from reassuring advice the moment you need it to fast access to treatment, Bupa act quickly so you can move forward faster. For certain conditions, such as muscle, bone or joint problems, mental health, cancer or cataracts, you can speak straight to a specialist, usually without waiting to see a GP† first.
  • For cancer care that helps get you there – if you are ever diagnosed with cancer, Bupa will look after you for as long as you have Bupa health insurance and you’ll have access to cancer drugs in the UK that are licensed for your condition and covered by your policy, even if it isn’t NICE approved or available on the NHS.
  • For nothing less than health expertise – whenever you need reliable health advice, for you or your family, you can call Bupa’s Anytime HealthLine to speak directly to qualified nurses and GPs 24/7.
  • For more than just health insurance – Bupa don’t just insure, they care. As well as funding diagnosis and treatment, they employ health experts to support you when you need it.

For flexibility and choice

Buying health insurance can be a big decision, which is why Bupa put you in control and give you the choice of two levels of cover – Comprehensive or Treatment and Care – which you can adapt to help build the most suitable cover for you.

  • Comprehensive - this covers your medical costs for private diagnosis, treatment and aftercare for all your eligible medical needs.
  • Treatment and Care - an option for people who are happy to be diagnosed by the NHS but would like to receive treatment privately.
