Previously, those moving abroad for less than a year had to buy a 12-month IPMI policy, regardless of the length of their trip. The new product, Bupa Flex, from Bupa International, allows these customers to choose the length of their policy.
Muriel MacCallum, marketing director at Bupa International, said, “We’ve listened to our customers and designed Bupa Flex specifically for their short-term needs. If you are relocating abroad, or travelling on an overseas assignment through work, you don’t necessarily want to take out a full year’s policy, but you still want the comprehensive cover IPMI provides.
“This new product means that our customers will still have access to the best possible care and treatment, wherever they are in the world, but with a timeframe and price that suits their needs.
“And, unlike with travel insurance, Bupa Flex will allow customers to extend their cover at any time, down to the day, wherever they are in the world, with the exception of the USA.”For more information about Bupa Flex, visit www.bupa-intl.com/bupa-flex
