What is the benefit?

AXA PPP Healthcare advise as follows.

“Private health insurance offers you quick access to eligible health treatment, from seeing a specialist for diagnosis to having a comfortable stay while you’re in hospital.

At AXA PPP healthcare we have been providing private healthcare cover to our members for nearly 80 years. Our Personal Health plan offers all university and college employees access to private healthcare with a 20% saving*.

*The 20% lower premium is for the first year’s subscription only. Subsequent year’s subscriptions may vary and will be impacted by any claims. The 20% lower premium is offered through a 3 year No Claims Discount boost, with 76% No Claims Discount start point rather than the standard 70%.”

How does it work?

If you are a new member of staff, you can join on a medical history disregarded basis (Premier and Key plans only) within your first six weeks, providing you can confirm that neither you, nor anyone else on the policy, have any ongoing claims or treatment, and have no treatment planned or booked within three months of the start date of the policy.

More information or to apply

Please note that if you join this scheme, you must arrange to pay AXA PPP Healthcare direct. The payment will not be deducted from your salary.
