New Bupa health insurance for NFU members

New Bupa health insurance for NFU members

Bupa test image_44620At the NFU we understand that if you get ill or injured, what matters most is getting back on your feet and back to the farm as quickly as possible.

That’s why we’re working with Bupa, which offers a 20% discount* to NFU members+ on health insurance, with access to the Bupa Instant GP app. Terms and conditions apply.

Private health insurance with Bupa provides the reassurance of cover from diagnosis through to treatment for eligible conditions covered by your policy. It’s designed to complement the NHS rather than replace it and it’s used for planned, not emergency, treatment.

The NFU Bupa Affinity Scheme offers:

  • Fast access to treatment. Appointments for scans, and results, each within two working days in most cases.

  • Access to an extensive network of specialist consultants.

  • Simple, helpful claims process. For some issues you can call directly for advice and treatment*.

*Direct access telephone services are available as long as the symptoms are covered under the policy. Direct access services may not always be available for some underwriting methods. Please call us to allow us to check your eligibility for the direct access service. 

  • Specialist support teams, helping you make informed decisions that are right for you. Trained to support in key areas including cancer, heart, mental health and muscle, joint and bone conditions.

  • 24/7 Anytime HealthLine – expertise and health advice just a phone call away.

  • Specialist support at every stage for cancer care. You’ll be in expert hands, and have access to eligible breakthrough drugs and treatments* with the option of chemotherapy treatment delivered by a specialist nurse in the comfort of your own home if approved by your consultant.

*Applies to eligible cancer drugs and treatment covered by your policy.

Back up that works for you

NFU health insurance members will get free access to the Bupa Instant GP app and free access to appointments. This service enables video (via Smartphone or desktop/laptop) and voice (via phone) consultations with a GP, meaning appropriate health advice can be accessed sooner and without leaving the farm. Terms and conditions apply.

We understand that buying health insurance is a big decision. As an NFU member, you will receive 20% discount* and the choice of two levels of cover – comprehensive or treatment and care – which you can adapt to build the most suitable cover for you.

Comprehensive - this covers your medical costs for private diagnosis, treatment and aftercare for all your eligible medical needs.

Treatment and care - an option for people who are happy to be diagnosed by the NHS but would like to receive treatment privately.
