Family together

Looking after your client and their family

When you recommend one of our protection policies to your client, you can relax, safe in the knowledge that we’ll be there for them and their families when it really matters. Of course, this means that we will always pay a successful claim. But with our policies, they will get so much more than that.

For more information on any of the services listed below, please read our guide to Support Plus

The following are non-contractual benefits which we could remove at any time.

Counselling and carer services

Life can be tough sometimes, so it helps to have someone you can turn to. That’s why each of our protection policies includes access to counselling and carer support services provided by Workplace Options.

Workplace options offers face to face or telephone based support for your client and their family, giving help with:

  • Mental wellness issues such as bereavement, work-related stress and relationship breakdown.
  • Facing the challenges that come with being a carer.

Bupa Anytime HealthLine

Bupa Anytime HealthLine is a telephone support service that gives your client access to a qualified nurse 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Your client can use this service to get answers to any questions or concerns they may have about a specific medical condition or to get practical advice on their general health and well being. They can also use the service with regards to their loved ones - for example, if they are worried about their children's health.

Second Opinion by Best Doctors ®

Second Opinion by Best Doctors ® gives your client access to Best Doctors' network of medical experts who can give them answers to any questions they may have. Once your client has contacted Best Doctors, they will collect your client's medical records and choose the best medical specialist for your client's condition. The doctor will then review your clients' case, providing their expert medical opinion in a report which includes:

  • Confirmation of your client's diagnosis
  • Treatment recommendations
