AXA PPP Health Insurance Options
AXA PPP offer 4 main types of comprehensive cover under their total private health insurance proposition, each having considerable flexibility and variations as required by your circumstances. They include;
Private Health Insurance
A form of cover designed to give you very fast access to experts and specialists plus, should it be required, treatment at a private hospital or clinic of your choice (from an approved list). Additional services are also included, variable by the service levels you have selected, including potentially a 24-hour helpline offering contact with a doctor.
These policies are modular in nature, allowing you to add, remove or customise the types of cover as you think fit. The NHS would still provide Accident and Emergency services plus several forms of critical illness treatment.
Family Health Insurance
AXA PPP’s policy offers family health insurance options and offers similar benefits but extends these to include your wider family members.
A brief sample of the cover provided includes:
- access to enhanced family and children’s cover making sure that your family get the eligible treatment they need when they need it;
- new-borns covered for free on your plan until the next renewal;
- 24/7 Health@Hand service from nurses and counsellors over the phone;
- access to a Fast Track Appointments service so you and your family can get swift access to eligible treatment;
- dedicated support from cancer nurses, over the phone, through treatment, diagnosis and recovery.
The costs vary considerably depending upon which combinations of options you select and the nature (and number) of any family members you add.
Tooth pain is best avoided or if that’s impossible, quickly remedied.
There are two basic forms of dental insurance plans available here, providing benefits such as:
- routine dental treatments – check-ups, dental x-rays and hygiene treatments;
- remedial or restorative treatments – fillings, crowns and dentures;
- unexpected remedial or restorative dental treatments, including cover for mouth cancer;
- worldwide cover for dental accidents and emergencies.
International Health Cover
This is a range of health cover protection aimed primarily at those living overseas (or spending longer periods of time there) in countries where public health services maybe limited or even non-existent.
International health cover plans are largely bespoke products that could be tailored to your specific needs. A telephone discussion with the policy provider is required to look at the benefits and costs involved – depending upon the country you’re considering.
