Add a hospital list

Every VitalityHealth plan comes with Consultant Select as standard, which gives you complete peace-of-mind, because it lets doctors decide who should treat you – instead of an insurer. The consultant will choose the most appropriate hospital for you to be treated in, based on your condition and where you live. However, if you would like more choice over where you are treated, you can choose to add a hospital list to your plan.

Out-patient Cover

Includes out-patient consultations and consultant fees when needed as part of your treatment; out-patient diagnostics including MRI, CT & PET scans, blood tests, x-rays, radiology and pathology when referred by a consultant. There are two levels of cover.

  • Out-patient Cover with a limit includes out-patient consultations, consultant fees, diagnostic tests and physiotherapy that isn’t arranged through our Priority Physiotherapy Network up to a limit of £500, £750, £1,000, £1,250 or £1,500. MRI, CT & PET scans will be covered in full no matter what limit you choose. We also pay in full for physiotherapy arranged through our Priority Physiotherapy Network.
  • Full Out-patient Cover includes all out-patient consultations, consultant fees, diagnostic tests and physiotherapy arranged through our Priority Physiotherapy Network.

Extended Cancer Cover

All our plans come with comprehensive Cancer Cover as standard. For an additional premium, you can choose our Extended Cancer Cover, which provides full cover for biological therapies, and hormone or bisphosphonate therapies. It also provides:
