Our cancer pledge

We’ll cover you every step of the way

Comprehensive cancer care, as standard

We understand the importance of providing extensive cover at every stage of cancer treatment – which is why we’ve made cancer care an integral part of our Private Health Insurance.

Extensive treatment cover

Chemotherapy, radiotherapy and targeted therapy are all covered under our Private Health Insurance

Dedicated ongoing care

Cover for up to 10 years of monitoring post-cancer treatment and up to 5 years for  ongoing medical care (eg replacing tubes or drains) 

NHS cash benefit

If you decide to use the NHS instead of private care, you can get £100 for each day or night of treatment, with no overall limit

From diagnosis and cancer treatment, to aftercare and monitoring, you can rely on our total support, each step of the way.

Cancer’s covered with our Private Health Insurance

You shouldn’t have to pay more for cancer cover. That’s why you’re covered as standard with our Private Health Insurance – just the way it should be.  

We’re committed to covering cancer

If you’re diagnosed with cancer, we’ll pay hospital charges for surgery and medical admissions. Treatment – including radiotherapy, chemotherapy and bone strengthening drugs – is also covered. And with wig and external prostheses costs also included 1, you can rely on us to provide first class care if the worst happens.

What cancer treatment is covered?
