BUPA launches new assurance scheme


Posted on May 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

BUPA, the UK’s biggest independent healthcare association, has introduced a new scheme aimed at people over 50 with immediate long term care needs. Called BUPA ImmediateCare, the scheme provides cover to people who are unable to perform at least one of six key activities of daily living or who are suffering from mental impairment that restricts their ability to cope without supervision, or who are at risk of endangering themselves or others. Entry to the scheme involves payment of a lump sum subscription at the outset. Benefits, which are tax free and payable for life or until recovery, include: #Direct payments to a home care provider or residential nursing home, #The ability to claim again if a recovery is made, #The option to protect against care price increases, #Low disability threshold for obtaining professional care, and #The flexibility to opt for additional cover, following an increased subscription, if the customer’s condition worsens. BUPA says there are no limits on the maximum or minimum amounts
