Beware The Shortfalls

AdvantagesGenerally friendly and quite efficient

DisadvantagesShortfalls, based in a call centre

"...later. Having spoken to BUPA and other insurance companies on a daily basis for the last six months, I would like to share my knowledge and experience of BUPA. GETTING THROUGH ----------------------------- I am not a policyholder of BUPA's and only call the claims helpline. This is LO-CALL number: 0845-7553333 based in Manchester.

A broken man but we can mend him

AdvantagesSpeed of treatment

DisadvantagesCost I guess

"...signed up for the companies BUPA policy which was at a 50% reduced rate and I have been a customer off and on ever since. Currently I’m rather fortunate to get BUPA free with my current employer, they see the benefit of reduced time away from the work place saving them the cost of a replacement teacher and I get the benefit of health cover at a vastly reduced rate as the only cost to me is the benefit in kind adjustment to my tax code at my marginal ..."

How Covered Are You ??

AdvantagesSuper Quick Service, Great Facilities

DisadvantagesExpensive

"...private health care policies and Bupa is probably about as big as they come in the sense of customers and facilities available for their customers.

Bloated and directionless monster

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesExpensive and limited

"...certainly isn't the case and BUPA only got to be the best known provider of PMI because for many years it was virtually the only provider and had an absolute monopoly. Let's go through the history... BUPA was formed in 1947 by the amalgamation of a number of provident not for profit associations, following the creation of the NHS. The name itself describes it and stands for the British United Provident Association. The optimism of those well ..." Read review
