Tesco revamps health insurance policies

Tesco has revamped its health insurance products to make them easier for customers to understand.

The supermarket insurer unveiled three new levels of health cover that ‘do what they say on the tin’.

Operations & Procedures is now the basic cover option, and includes the cost of surgery and cancer treatments such as chemotherapy or radiotherapy, as well as treatments requiring an overnight hospital stay.

Customers who require additional cover can choose to add one or two optional extras from Consultations & Tests, and Additional Therapies.

Consultations & Tests includes provision for specific diagnostic tests and referrals to specialists, whilst Additional therapies includes treatments such as physiotherapy and acupuncture.

Customers who want to reduce the cost of their cover can choose a six week option, which offers private treatment if the NHS has a waiting list of more than six weeks.

Jeremy Sutton, head of Tesco health insurance, said: “We have launched these new levels of cover in response to feedback, which told us customers wanted flexibility and choice, with a range of options, to suit their needs.”

A typical 35 year old can take out cover from £21 per month when choosing the six week option.
