When a member of your team is worried about possible cancer, it can be difficult to think about anything else. They will want to speak to a medical professional quickly, so they can get the answers they need.
We’ve included some FAQs and answers to some common questions about how our cancer diagnosis and claims process works for our small business health insurance at AXA Health, so you and your team can know exactly what to expect.
At AXA Health, we think that the best way for you to get the healthcare cover that works for your business is to let you build your plan yourself. We offer a range of cover options, so you can build a plan that works for you and your team. Whether you want to prioritise fast access to diagnosis for your team, or you’d like to provide mental health support^, we offer a wide range of cover options for you to choose from.
If you include one of our Outpatient options or our Diagnostics Only option on your plan then you and your team will be covered for diagnostics to detect cancer. Following the diagnostics, if your employee gets a confirmed diagnosis of cancer then the treatment and monitoring of their cancer will be covered if you have included the Treatment with Comprehensive Cancer Cover option on your plan.
