Nationwide Physiotherapy Service has teamed up with Bupa to launch a private medical insurance plan that delivers private hospital treatment if NHS waiting lists are longer than six weeks, and also pays for out-patient physiotherapy. There is also a scheme that pays cash if you have to stay in hospital or have other medical treatments including up to 30 physiotherapy out-patient sessions a year.
There is also a 24-hour stress counselling service available with both plans.
The cash plan costs between pounds 12 and pounds 25 a month for singles under 50, and the waiting list scheme would cost under pounds 20 a month for the under-45s.
The NPS schemes are available via Bupa.Reuse content
