All health worries can be stressful. However, when one of your employees is worried about possible or diagnosed cancer, this can have a big impact on their life and on their loved ones.
At AXA Health, with our Treatment with Comprehensive Cancer Cover option, we aim to help your employee manage the impact of cancer on their mind, body and life – by giving them quick access to diagnostics to detect cancer as early as possible. They'll also have access to experienced specialists and expert-led treatments and facilities. We also aim to reduce the impact of cancer on their wider health, as well as being there to support them and their family.
Availability of the Treatment with Comprehensive Cancer Cover option is subject to medical history.
1For prostate concerns, a confirmed raised PSA report is required in order to access diagnostics. This could be obtained from an NHS GP, a wellbeing check or through a self-pay service.
Sarah is 42 and is part of a team of 20 accountants. Last week, Sarah noticed that a mole on her right leg seemed to have changed colour from how she remembered it looking. She had been struggling to sleep at night for the past few nights as she had been worrying about the mole.
Sarah checked her AXA Health membership and saw that she had the Outpatient option as part of her business health insurance cover. She called us on her lunchbreak and answered a few questions so we could find out which service was right for her. Sarah didn't need to see her GP, we were able to refer her to a private SkinHealth UK clinic and an appointment was made for a few days time.
At the appointment, a skin cancer nurse photographed the mole. These photographs were then sent for analysis by a specialist consultant, using the latest technology (dermoscopy) and the results were sent to Sarah within five working days.
The specialist's diagnosis was that Sarah's mole was an early stage melanoma. As Sarah had the Treatment with Comprehensive Cancer Cover option included in her business health insurance cover, she was able to have surgery to have the melanoma removed in a private hospital the following week. She was then able to go home the same day to rest and recover.
Four weeks later, Sarah was invited back for a follow up appointment with the consultant who performed her procedure. The consultant ran through the results of the surgery with Sarah and informed her that they believed they were able to remove all of the melanoma during the surgery meaning that Sarah did not require any follow up treatment.
Please note, the above is a fictional scenario to illustrate how our Treatment with Comprehensive Cancer Cover option can work.
