Private healthcare facilities are now widely available again and ready to see private patients.*
As lockdown restrictions have been easing, private hospitals have agreed with the NHS to release some of the capacity that it offered to support the NHS.
If you have a health concern and you’ve put off diagnosis or treatment, please don’t delay any longer.
Contact us today, so we can help you get your health back on track.
*From time to time there may be some exceptions to this in certain areas, but we continue to work closely with private hospitals to understand any impact on our customers of local restrictions.
“We’re committed to doing the right thing by our members. Any reduction in claims costs compared to 2019* arising from delays in treatment due to the coronavirus crisis will be refunded in proportion to your subscription paid.”
Tracy Garrad, CEO AXA Health
Our new Clinical Support Centre gives you access to specialist consultations for a range of conditions, despite the lockdown, from the safety and comfort of your own home. Call us and we’ll connect you to the right specialist.
Speak to a GP by video or phone from the safety of your home. Unlimited 24/7 online GP appointments (subject to fair-use) are now free of charge to our individual and SME members.
Right now, looking after our mental wellbeing is important. So we’ve teamed up with Thrive – the app that helps you boost your mental wellbeing and build resilience – to offer our individual and SME members a free subscription until 31 March 2021.
Don’t forget, we have a range of health and wellbeing services to support you during these challenging times. From talking to a physiotherapist by phone to checking your medication with a pharmacist, it’s all at your fingertips for you to use.
We’re increasing some plan benefits and removing restrictions to help you get the treatment you need.
If you can’t get the treatment you’re eligible for right now we’ll still authorise it for you, so when things return to normal you can have your treatment straightaway, as long as you maintain your cover.
No excess to pay and no outpatient limits on consultations and diagnostic tests for individual and SME members when using our new Clinical Support Centre. Normal policy limits apply to treatment.
NHS cash benefit payment increased by £100 per night from 1 April 2020 for 12 months. If you have any NHS inpatient treatment or NHS cancer radiotherapy or chemotherapy that we would have covered if you had had it privately, you can claim this benefit.
The overall NHS cash benefit limit, of a maximum of £2000 a year, has not increased; just the amount per night or per treatment. This applies to all individual and SME plans including those that which didn’t previously have the benefit. You can also claim if you’re hospitalised for COVID-19-related conditions.
