Policy available for a period of three to 11 months
Bupa International has launched a short-term international private medical insurance (iPMI) policy, Bupa Flex.
Under the plan, customers can take out cover for a period of between three and 11 months.
Bupa says the plan offers customers value for money, as previously those moving abroad for less than a year would have needed to buy a 12-month iPMI plan.
Muriel MacCallum, marketing director at Bupa International, said: “We’ve listened to our customers and designed Bupa Flex specifically for their short-term needs. If you are relocating abroad, or travelling on an overseas assignment through work, you don’t necessarily want to take out a full year’s policy, but you still want the comprehensive cover iPMI provides.
“This new product means that our customers will still have access to the best possible care and treatment, wherever they are in the world, but with a time frame and price that suits their needs.”
