With Health Flex Level 3, we offer a comprehensive level of cancer cover with a balanced programme of support and clinical expertise provided to those diagnosed with cancer. We’ll pay costs for active and evidence based treatment of a primary cancer or a cancer that has spread from its original site, known as secondary cancer or metastatic spread.
We may cover the costs of participating in a regulated phase III or IV clinical trial in the United Kingdom in conjunction with the commonly accepted, established and effective evidence based treatment and where there is perceived advantage to the trial treatment.
We also pay a contribution towards wigs and mastectomy bras for members undergoing cancer treatment.
It’s important to note that the cancer treatments we cover may not necessarily cure the disease but are given to control and maintain tumour size. Cover ends when this treatment is no longer effective at shrinking the cancer, stabilising it or slowing the spread of the disease and is only serving to keep the patient comfortable. At this stage a hospice donation for end of life care is available.
