Bupa Launch “Mental Health Advantage” to all
Last April, Bupa launched its Business Mental Health Advantage to the corporate market, calling it the ‘most extensive mental cover available'.
Bupa has today revealed that it is to expand these benefits to consumer customers, making Bupa the only insurer to cover all mental health conditions, including all addictions and alcohol and drug abuse, on the individual market.
As of June, Bupa's mental health cover, which is designed with families in mind, covers depression, bipolar and anxiety, while providing long-term support and treatment related to learning or behavioural disorders. Children can be covered from birth.
"Mental health issues can affect anyone, and early diagnosis and treatment improves outcomes. Our extended offering is a huge step forward in widening cover way beyond what was available previously and ensuring that more people than ever before can access the right help when they need it."
