What does health insurance cover mean?

To support addictions we fund one addiction treatment program per membership lifetime. To support chronic mental health conditions (conditions which recur) we have removed restrictions on cover from June 2019. If you joined Bupa, or renewed your policy, before June 2019, there will still be restrictions on chronic mental health cover until your next renewal . Please call us if you would like to discuss the benefit limits on your policy. One addiction treatment plan only.

Subject to your benefit limits.

For rolling moratorium underwritten members we will ask for evidence each time you claim for a condition not claimed
