BUPA appointed by Virgin Media

| August 9, 2007 | 0 Comments

Virgin Media was launched in early 2007 following the merger of ntl and Telewest. The companies wanted to look at combining their separate healthcare schemes into a new single healthcare trust, and as a result, BUPA Health Insurance has been appointed to provide private healthcare to 13,000 employees of entertainment and communications company Virgin Media for the next 3 years.

BUPA Health Insurance was chosen following a rigorous tender process, which was managed by employee benefits consultancy Gissings on behalf of Virgin Media. BUPA was also chosen for its knowledge and understanding of Virgin Media’s health and financial requirements.

The Virgin Media Employee Medical Scheme comprises custom-built and comprehensive medical cover giving employees access to BUPA’s unique networks of specialist treatment centres for various cancers and the BUPA HealthLine is staffed by nurses 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

A spokesperson for BUPA Health Insurance commented that they are pleased with Virgin Media’s choice and added that it is an exciting new partnership - one which they look forward to building on in the future.

A spokesperson for Virgin Media remarked that BUPA were chosen as they proved their commitment and considerable experience. The healthcare plan meets our health and financial needs.

In addition, BUPA has been appointed by Whitbread to provide cover for employees of Costa Coffee, Premier Travel Inn, Brewers Fayre and Beefeater.
