Diagnosis and Discounted Screenings
We understand that a fast diagnosis can be lifesaving and give your clients access to various discounts and screenings.
Discounts and screenings may include:
- One Vitality Healthcheck at no extra cost*
- 50% or 100% off a Bluecrest screening**
- Access to Vitality GP
Your clients can upgrade their Out-patient Cover so that out-patient diagnostic tests are covered in full. Only consultant appointments and out-of-network physiotherapy would be deducted from their chosen Out-patient Cover limit.
Out-patient diagnostics include MRI, CT & PET scans, blood tests, x-rays, radiology and pathology when referred by a consultant. The costs we cover will depend on what Out-Patient Cover limit your client chooses to add to their plan.
As part of their plan, your clients will be able to complete an online questionnaire to determine their risk levels for five of the most common cancers, including; Breast, Bowel, Cervical, Prostate and Skin cancer.
If your client is found to be high risk, they'll be offered a discounted screening with Check4Cancer.
