  • Fast access to private medical treatment
  • Private treatment available in more than 250 quality-assessed hospitals

Tesco Health Cover for You

Tesco Bank provides detailed cover that begins with provisions for most types of procedural or operational treatments. Private health insurance policies cover surgery costs, treatment costs, overnight stays, radiotherapy, chemotherapy and a full range of in-patient and out-patient scanning procedures.

Policies can be enhanced by purchasing additional options. There is no option to purchase additional cover, and all policyholder reserve the right to purchase both forms of enhanced protection:

  • Option One – Option One gives preferential access for consultations and testing and covers all specialist fees. Combined cover limit is set at £1,000 per year, which equates to approximately six referrals
  • Option Two – Option Two also has a combined cover limit of £1,000 per year, and includes physiotherapy, chiropractic, acupuncture and homeopathy treatments

Exclusions are in place for pre-existing conditions, recurrent health problems and the treatment of long-term illnesses. Monthly premiums can be reduced by adding a 6-week option. This automatically provides policyholders with a private alternative if the NHS cannot provide treatment within 6 weeks of a scheduled date.

Health Cover for Children

As a supplement to private health insurance plans for adults, Tesco Bank also provides a comprehensive solution for your loved ones. The Tesco Child Health Plan is available for £9.99 per month, and this figure falls by £1 per child if two or more family members are registered. The benefits to the plan can provide perfect peace of mind for parents:

  • No waiting for consultations. Your child will see a GP and be instantly referred for further diagnosis
  • Children are able to receive private health care straight away if a consultant decides that further treatment is necessary
  • Treatments available at private hospitals or NHS hospitals with private wards
  • Parental accommodation costs paid in full for one child under the age of 14
