Private healthcare expenses

One of our most popular membership benefits is the ability to claim back 50% of the excess you pay (up to a maximum of £100) should you use your employers' private healthcare plan.


The scheme is open to all Accord members whose employer provides private healthcare to their staff, regardless of grade. Private healthcare policies are provided by companies such as Bupa, Axa, and Mayfair Worldwide. Some employers provide cash plans (such as the Bupa cash plan level 1, 2 or 3). These plans are different to private healthcare and pay your expenses up to set limits.

Please check the eligibility criteria linked below to see if you are able to make a claim under the scheme terms and conditions.
