"BUPA - no longer a reasonable service"

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.

    As it happens, I have had very good experience with BUPA, but that is not the reason for the low rating, which is that you don't give sufficient information about the company and its services for a reader to put your remarks in context.

    What do they provide cover for? How much is it? Any refunds? How easy is it to get?
