Bupa has announced the launch of its first dental insurance product.
[UKPRwire, Wed Dec 21 2011] Bupa is introducing a consumer dental insurance product for the first time, in response to high demand from customers.
Dental Cover 10 and 20 from Bupa allow customers to choose whichever dentist they want to visit. Dental Cover 10 offers customers a full refund for NHS treatment* and market-leading oral cancer cover up to £15,000 per person per year**.
Dental Cover 20 allows customers with a privately registered dentist to claim up to £150 a year of dental insurance for routine treatment such as check-ups, dental x-rays and scale and polish. For more expensive, non-cosmetic treatment such as fillings, root canals, extractions, crowns, bridgework and dentures, customers can claim up 75% of each bill, with up to £700 paid back per year. Cover also includes emergency dental treatment and treatment for dental injury***.
With no underwriting or pre-enrolment checks required****, set-up is quick and easy for the customer.
Previously Bupa dental cover was only available to individual customers as an option with the healthcare groupís adaptable health insurance product, Bupa By You.
Sue Moore, Marketing and Customer Development Director, Bupa Health & Wellbeing said: "Having listened to our customers, we have designed a product which gives people extensive cover when they visit the dentist, whether NHS or private. We know that our customers will value the peace of mind that this gives them."
