BUPA improve cancer offering

Bupa's aim is to enable people to lead longer, healthier, happier lives through offering choice and providing access to the best healthcare.

We are pleased to announce that we’ve made a further improvement to the way we manage cancer cover for our members - NHS cancer cash payment offers members the choice to have their cancer treatment on the NHS instead of making a claim for cancer treatment under their Bupa cover.

Our new cancer cash payment enables members to claim £100 for every day they choose to have their radiotherapy, chemotherapy or surgery for cancer provided by the NHS - treatment that could otherwise have been received privately and covered under their Bupa policy.

The introduction of NHS cancer cash payment follows the creation of a specialist Oncology Support Team which was launched in 2010. The specialist team is available to all members who are diagnosed with cancer, and can discuss all the choices that are available to them including the option to have chemotherapy at home when clinically appropriate.

We are constantly looking at ways to further develop our cancer cover for the benefit of our members. We believe members going through cancer treatment should be given as much choice as possible, the introduction of NHS cancer cash payment is another way of offering this.
