The Federation of Holistic Therapists have been speaking to a number of private health insurance providers, including BUPA, about the FHT Complementary Healthcare Therapist Register, which was accredited by the Professional Standards Authority as an Accredited Voluntary Register (AVR) this January.

BUPA has just advised the FHT that practitioners registered with an AVR will be reimbursed when providing approved treatments for a BUPA Cashplan policy holder.

BUPA Cashplan has a number of policy products that offer complementary therapy to policyholders, including Sports Therapy.

*BUPA regularly builds bespoke Cashplan policies for corporate clients, which could potentially include a number of different complementary therapies.
