Bupa HM Forces Scheme
What is the HM Forces Bupa Scheme?
At Forces Health, we understand that if you get ill or injured what matters most is getting back to the things that matter as soon as possible. That’s why we’re working with Bupa to offer discounted rates* on the HM Forces Bupa Scheme.
The HM Forces Bupa Scheme gives you fast access to the help you need from Bupa, and provides the reassurance of cover from diagnosis through to treatment for eligible conditions covered by your policy.
What are the benefits of the HM Forces Bupa Scheme?
- For getting the help you need faster – for certain conditions, you can speak straight to a specialist, usually without waiting to see a GP**.
- For cancer care that helps get you there – you’ll have access to any cancer drug in the UK that’s licensed for your condition, even if the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) haven’t yet approved it or it isn’t available on the NHS^.
- For nothing less than health expertise – whenever you need reliable health advice, call Bupa’s Anytime HealthLine to speak directly to qualified nurses and doctors 24/7. You can call them about any family members who are covered under your policy too.
- For more than just health insurance – Bupa don’t just insure, they care. As well as funding diagnosis and treatment, they employ health experts to support you at every step.
