Why we no longer offer treatment paid for by BUPA
There is a growing issue of BUPA patients being unable to use osteopaths through their BUPA health insurance. Osteopaths are continuing to successfully treat patients privately and on the NHS but have now come up against the problem where BUPA is capping fees of £40 for an Intial consultation and £30 for follow up treatment, with no room for negotiation.
This issue of capping is putting BUPA patients in a situation where they will be unable to continue to have osteopathic treatment in certain areas as osteopaths can not afford to treat at these prices. BUPA itself charges £85 (consultation) and £59 (treatments) for osteopathy in its centre at Canary Wharf!
As a direct result of this and the imposition of certain practices/policies, over 3000 osteopaths removed themselves from the BUPA recognised provider register. A sizeable number of chiropractors and physiotherapists have also followed suit.
This issue is reducing the amount of choice available to patients under BUPA and needs to be addressed urgently. If you are a BUPA member, we strongly urge you to write to BUPA to address this issue.
Sadly because of the amount of work involved with BUPA we can no longer afford to offer ourselves as service providers under BUPA health insurance policies.
