London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) July 31, 2012 -- Bupa International has launched a new flexible short-term international private medical insurance (IPMI) policy, called Bupa Flex. The product will allow customers to purchase IPMI, but on a 3-11 month basis and anywhere in between, down to the day they require.
Previously, people moving abroad for less than a year did not have the option to buy a short term IPMI product. Bupa Flex will allow these customers to choose the length of their policy, offering them value for money, as well as access to all the benefits of being one of Bupa's international health insurance customers.
Muriel MacCallum, marketing director, 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 appropriate care and treatment they need, wherever they are in the world (except the USA), through an insurance policy with a timeframe and price that suits their needs."
Bupa International offers customers access to more than 200,000 medical providers worldwide and can settle bills directly with over 7,500 hospitals and clinics. Customers can contact Bupa International's doctors and advisers for medical advice and guidance, 24 hours a day, and have access to a second medical opinion at no extra cost.
