You can tailor and improve your Saga Health Insurance policy so you can have the cover that's right for you, with one or more of the following options:
All Saga HealthPlans offer cover for the surgical treatment of cancer, and all, except for Support cover radiotherapy and chemotherapy too. However, for greater reassurance Extended Cancer Cover can be added to all health plans except Support.
With this cover, you have access to drugs for the treatment of cancer where the drug has been licensed for use and is being used within the terms of that licence. This includes medical treatment to help prevent the recurrence of cancer or maintain remission.
It's important to us that we continue to provide our customers with a wide range of benefits. That's why we introduced our optional Health Cash Benefits Cover.
This cover option provides cashback towards your everyday healthcare costs, such as dental and optical appointments or treatment.
One of the great things about this cover option is that you can claim these benefits without paying an excess and these claims won't affect your No Claim Discount.
So, if you'd like to make trips to the dentist a little less painful, call us on 0330 094 6361 to add this cover to your policy.
Hypertension, or persistently raised blood pressure, can lead to serious medical problems such as a stroke or heart attack. Many insurers don't offer health insurance for hypertension or associated conditions if you already have hypertension when you join. However, because our medical insurance is designed for the over 50s, for an additional cost, we can provide you with full cover if your currently have this condition - subject to two simple qualifying questions.
When you take out a Saga HealthPlan you'll usually start with a 35% No Claim Discount and this rises annually by 5% to a maximum of 60% if no claims are made. If you make a claim you just move back two levels on the scale, but you'll never fall below level 0, no matter how many claims you make.
Available for an additional payment, Saga's No Claim Discount protection allows you to make one claim during the previous policy year without it reducing your No Claim Discount.
