Norwich Union Healthcare has improved its global care company and individual private medical policies.

Global Care has introduced a compassionate travel benefit: travel to attend the funeral on the death of a close relative; introduction of one follow-up outpatient consultation and ten sessions of outpatient physiotherpay following eligible inpatient treatment on specialist referral.

Global Care Plus also sees the introduction of compassionate travel benefit: increased routine dental cover (up to £500), introduction of voluntary excess options giving premium discounts (£100 excess equals 10% discount and £250 will equal 20% discount).

The emergency dental treatment benefit on both policies has also been improved – the 48-hour time limit for treatment has been removed and the benefit has been extended to include reconstructive treatment as well as pain relief.
