Unlimited in-patient & day-patient treatment
Our core cover never limits in-patient and day-patient treatment. Any treatment is made available for as long as it’s needed.
Complete cancer cover
Cancer may be your biggest fear - so we take it seriously. Every Health+ member has cover for all stages of cancer, including access to the latest drugs and treatments.
Covers you for out-patient surgical procedures performed by a specialist.
When it’s essential that an in-patient or day patient has medical treatment whilst they travel to, between or from hospital we’ll provide a private road ambulance.
Sometimes patients still need nursing once they leave hospital. So, if required, home nursing is made available to in-patients & day-patients following treatment.
If your children require treatment in hospital, it can be a worrying time, so they can stay with their child (up to age 18) for as long as it takes.
Often it can take more than surgery to get you back on your feet. If that’s the case our core cover will provide up to three sessions of post-operative out-patient physiotherapy following in-patient, day-patient or out-patient surgery.
NHS cash benefit
If it’s easier for you to have free in-patient treatment under the NHS and the treatment would be covered under your policy, we’ll pay out £150 per night for up to 30 nights.
