Bupa Family Cover is a type of Private Medical Insurance (PMI). There are lots of benefits to taking out a private policy. In most cases you have less waiting time and faster access to expert care, as well as more freedom about when and where you would like to be treated. Bupa in-patients can expect privacy, medical experts to treat you and an excellent standard of after-care.
A Bupa Family Cover policy includes your spouse and any dependent children that are living with you – who are up to 24 years old. It is a great umbrella policy that can be taken out either privately or through your company healthcare insurance plan. It could help your whole family deal with all kinds of health issues; from minor ailments and accidents, right through to life threatening illnesses.
There are options for the level of cover from Level 4 to Level 8 (Level 8 being the highest level of cover). Our advisors will be happy to explain more, and describe what’s included in these different levels.
Key benefits of the family cover Bupa plan include:
- up to 40 nights accommodation if you need to stay in hospital
- 100% cashback towards dental and optician costs (dependent on selected level of cover)
- up to £120,000 personal accident cover (conditions apply)
- A range of therapies e.g. physiotherapy, chiropractic, acupuncture
If you are considering taking out family protection you will be asked to take a look at your family’s lifestyle and consider any health issues that have been prevalent in your family. For instance if cancer is historical then there is a ‘Cancer Cover’ policy, that would ensure you get swift and expert care immediately should a member of your family be diagnosed with cancer. It is possible to select different cover for individual members of your family.
