Healthcare insurance

Cover for you and your family

At AXA PPP healthcare our Personal Health plans means you’re seen and treated quickly when you’re ill. You see a consultant, rather than a junior doctor or registrar. You’re treated in a private hospital, or the private wing of an NHS hospital. And you have your treatment in comfortable surroundings – usually your own room, an en-suite bathroom, and flexible visiting hours.

What’s more, subject to your medical history, if you have cancer cover, you can access breakthrough treatments, including new cancer drugs, as soon as they’re licensed – meaning there’s evidence they work. Join today and benefit from:

  • Fast Track Appointments Service - finding you the right specialist, at the right time and place for you, when you have the Out-Patient option on your cover
  • 24/7 telephone access to medical professionals
  • Telephone Support from Physiotherapists within our Directory of Hospitals with no GP referral, available to over 18's
  • Enhanced children's cover as standard
  • Access the latest licensed chemotherapy drugs on specialist referral - even if they aren't available on the NHS
  • Special offers for members, including half-price gym membership**
  • A £100 M&S gift card, free when you join*

Can I choose a specific consultant and hospital?

At AXA PPP healthcare we always recommend that you ask your GP for an open referral. That's a referral that doesn't name a specialist. With an open referral, you'll have a choice of specialist and our Fast Track Appointments team will make an appointment for you.

Can I buy cover for my family?

You can add family members to your cover, including babies, at any time. You can normally add:

  1. Your partner. It does not matter whether you are married, in a civil partnership, or living together permanently in a similar relationship.
  2. Any of your children or your partner's children.

If you would like to add a new baby to your cover, you can normally do this from their date of birth, so long as you call within three months of their birth. At AXA PPP healthcare we will not normally need details of their medical history. Cover exclusions may apply to babies born after fertility treatment, or following assisted reproduction, or who you have adopted.

What if I already have health insurance?

If you already have health insurance and are looking to switch providers give us a call today to find out more. We can manage the paperwork for you and work with you to provide continuous cover, subject to your chosen plan.
