Cancer care explained

Please read the following information in conjunction with your Guide, Benefit Schedule and Certificate of Registration (or Certificate of Participation). Together these documents contain the terms and conditions of your Policy/Company Scheme, including details of any exclusions, benefit limits or restrictions on hospital choice that may apply.

Cancer Care must either be included as standard or selected as an option under your Policy/Company Scheme for benefits to be available. Any Shared Responsibility (co-payment)/excess or maximum annual limits will apply to claims.

Please remember that all claims must be pre-authorised; WPA will contact the specialist in charge of your treatment to obtain a full treatment plan. Depending on the type of treatment prescribed by your specialist, you will have a choice of where you receive treatment (subject to applicable terms and conditions) as a private in-patient or day-patient in hospital, as an out-patient or at home. If your Policy/Company Scheme includes benefit for NHS Hospital Cash Benefit then you may choose to have your treatment as an NHS patient and claim the cash benefit instead.
