BUPA are one of the best known private health insurance companies in the country and my experience of using them has been a really positive one. I'm actually covered through my boyfriends policy that he added me to so I'm not sure how much it costs each month as he gets a discount on the cover through his work.
I had to provide some personal details when I was added to the policy as well as previous health information as pre existing conditions would not be covered.
With private health cover you are paying for peace of mind that if anything goes wrong you will have access to a consultant immediately rather than having to wait for the NHS to see you which can be months.
Recently I started getting some pain in my knee joint probably caused by my dancing so I went to my doctors, stated that I had privet health cover and immediately they gave me a referral to a consultant and a letter to provide to BUPA, one call later and immediately I had been accepted that my costs would be covered and I was given the go ahead to make the appointment.
Everything has been so easy, I was eventually referred to physio and all my bills are paid, so far I reckon I have easily run up a £500 bill which we ould not have been able to afford and everything is paid directly by BUPA, each physio session is £39 and a fifteen minute follow up with the consultant was £75.
For peace of mind BUPA certainly are well worth the expense.
