Review of "BUPA"
BUPA have hardly increased their allowances towards surgery and anaesthetic fees over 20 years.To make matters worse is that they have recently (April 2012) cut their benefits for a huge range of surgical procedures
This means that the patient must be prepared for huge cost shortfalls in order to see their consultant of choice (and that of their GP)The alternative is to be directed to see specialists of BUPA's choice who have accepted low fees in order to be sent the patients (they could be generalists rather than sub specialists, new consultants rather than experienced doctors, semi-retired doctors and those without sufficiently good reputation to establish/maintain an independent practice)
I will be switching to WPA or Pru Health for my family's cover from now on.
