Our cancer pledge
We understand the importance of providing extensive cover and support at every stage of cancer treatment. Our cancer pledge means we’ll cover the cancer treatment and palliative care required, as recommended by a specialist, should you ever have to make a cancer claim.
We also want to make things as comfortable as possible during cancer treatment, so we’ll provide extensive cover for aftercare, including consultations with a dietician, as well as money towards prostheses and wigs.
What is covered for cancer treatment?
The following table shows what is covered for cancer treatment. The cover options selected on your policy will be applied in the normal way for any claims made. You are fully covered when you use a specialist within our fee guidelines and a hospital on your chosen list. When recommended by your specialist and agreed by us the below treatment is covered. This is just a summary of the cover, for full details please refer to the terms and conditions (PDF 2.06MB).
From 2 July 2012 we removed the limits on our ‘reduced out-patient’ options for cancer claims and we’ve back dated this to 1 January 2012 when we introduced our cancer pledge. This means that if you’ve chosen a ‘reduced out-patient’ option on your policy, we won’t apply the specified limits to any treatment received after cancer has been diagnosed.
