Bupa Global

About Us

Bupa Global is a leading international private health insurance company.

Here when you need us

Our health insurance products come with a range of inclusive benefits and services, including:

Second Medical Opinion

When you’re facing unexpected health challenges, you want to know that every option has been explored before making any big decisions on your care pathway. That’s why we’ll connect you with leading independent medical experts to provide a full review of your situation, giving you extra reassurance when you need it most.

Global Virtual Care

We know how important it is to get the healthcare you need, when you need it. In addition to the extensive network of doctors and facilities available on your health plan, Global Virtual Care provides you with on demand access to a team of international doctors 24/7, and in multiple languages, by telephone or video call.

24-hour medical help

We have a team of advisers, doctors and nurses based around the world, helping us provide a multilingual service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our specialised teams enable easy access to medical professionals, approval of treatment, health advice and evacuation services.

Mental health support

We believe that your mental health and wellbeing is just as important as your physical health. Our plans include coverage for a range of mental health conditions, from work-related stress, depression, and anxiety to self-inflicted injury, addiction and ADHD, with no waiting periods or lifetime limits, subject to the overall limit of the plan*.

Making a positive impact

Along with our colleagues, clients and customers, Bupa is on a journey to help make a better world. We’re committed to doing all we can, environmentally and in our communities, to make a positive difference. Whether the impact is felt thousands of miles away or on our own doorstep, we’ll never stop working towards a healthier future for all.

Who we are

As part of our aim to improve the health of people and the planet, Bupa’s ambition is to become a Net Zero business by 2040, and we have joined the UN’s Race to Zero campaign.

Alongside sustainability, we also consider broader social aspects such as inclusion and diversity, and employee health and wellbeing. At Bupa, we strive to create an environment which recognises, values and respects the differences we all bring.
