Health insurance provider Bupa is offering all inclusive packages for private treatments under a new pilot scheme.
People in the UK who want access to private treatment either have to claim on their health insurance policy or meet the costs themselves.
Bupa on Demand is a new pilot scheme which offers private treatment packages at a fixed price for people without health insurance or who are excluded from certain treatments on their current plan.
The programme offers over 70 self-pay treatments at an all-inclusive price. It covers the initial consultation, outpatient tests, hospital charges, drugs, dressings, specialist fees and a follow up consultation.
A spokeswoman for Bupa said: “Bupa on Demand will make it quick and easy for people to receive prompt access to the treatment they need at an affordable price.
“Customers can go to independent hospitals across the UK, all of which are recognised by Bupa as meeting high quality standards.”
Every treatment will have the same terms and price no matter which hospital it is carried out in within the Bupa network. Cataract surgery is being offered for £2,505 per eye, hysterectomies for £5,300 and hip replacements for £10,505.
Bupa says the price also covers unexpected care costs in hospital like intensive care and readmission. Within 30 days of treatment.
