Insurance firms eye up NHS top ups

7th November 2008

Insurance companies are looking into the implications of the decision to lift the top ups ban for the NHS.

Companies such as Standard Life, AXA PPP and Bupa feel there may be a lucrative market opening up to sell policies to NHS patients after the decision to lift ban.

One firm said it could be bigger than the private medical insurance market, while analysts predicted the top up ruling could mark a "pivotal point", though the union Unison said such developments could endanger the values of the NHS.
