Why we no longer offer treatment paid for by BUPA & AXA/PPP
There is a growing issue of BUPA & AXA/PPP patients being unable to use osteopaths through their BUPA & AXA/PPP health insurance. Osteopaths are continuing to successfully treat patients privately and on the NHS but have now come up against the problem where BUPA & AXA/PPP 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 & AXA/PPP 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 & AXA/PPP 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 & AXA/PPP 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 & AXA/PPP and needs to be addressed urgently. If you are a BUPA or AXA/PPP member, we strongly urge you to write to them to address this issue.
Sadly because of the amount of work involved with BUPA & AXA/PPP we can no longer afford to offer ourselves as service providers under BUPA & AXA/PPP health insurance policies.
