BUPA has launched a new comprehensive health cover product that focuses on the key issues of affordability and future price increases.
With premiums up to 65 per cent lower than equivalent schemes and the option of a £1,000 or £2,000 excess, BUPA Fixed Price Plus represents the latest step to tackle the areas that matter to its customers.
Currently the only company offering guaranteed fixed rates for up to 10 years on medical insurance, BUPA’s latest product also includes comprehensive medical cover, serious illness cover up to £20,000, access to a health savings account (HSA), and a 24-hour healthline run by a team of qualified medical professionals.
The HSA is a high-interest deposit account in which customers can set aside savings for smaller healthcare costs. It is administered on behalf of BUPA by the Portman Building Society, the fifth largest in the UK with assets exceeding £6bn.
Commenting on the launch, BUPA’s sales director Steve Flanagan said: “This is a further move towards establishing a longer-term relationship with customers and offers the protection that matters most to people at a price that is affordable and fixed.
“Our customers tell us that when they buy health cover, they want the reassurance that, regardless of how many times they claim, large unmanageable medical bills will be paid.
“BUPA Fixed Price Plus gives the flexibility of comprehensive medical cover, only leaving routine healthcare costs and smaller bills for people to pay themselves.”
