Bupa offers tailored health care plans to suit individual policy holders. All members, regardless of cover types selected, have access to prompt consultations and treatment when required, a helpline that is available 24/7, and member discounts.

Bupa health care insurance policies are available with various combinations of cover. The most expansive form of cover is Comprehensive, which covers all costs between initial diagnosis to aftercare as long as Bupa memberships remain active.

Cancer care is a prominent aspect of Bupa health care coverage and there is a Cancer Survivorship programme as well as access to successful breakthrough cancer drugs and treatments. There are several types of cancer cover that can be covered within comprehensive Bupa policies including Full Cancer Cover to Cancer Cover Plus. Cancer Cover Plus is the name given to the option that pays for chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgical operations that are not provided by the NHS.

Consultations, diagnostic tests, MRI scans, CT and PET scans can all be covered by Bupa. Once a new condition is diagnosed, Bupa health care insurance can cover the cost of therapy and other post-diagnostic treatments. Medical treatments that are considered apparent before membership starts are not covered by this insurance.

An alternative policy offered by Bupa provides coverage for treatment and aftercare services such as medication and therapies. With this policy, initial diagnostic tests will be covered by the NHS.
