Bupa Transfer

Transfer your existing health insurance with Bupa to Sanitas easily and effortlessly

Once you’ve held a BUPA policy for at least one year you are authorised to transfer your policy to Sanitas with full continuation of cover and no new exclusions. This is applicable to policies held under any part of the BUPA group.

BUPA Transfer Q&A

Here you will find the frequently asked questions about the BUPA Transfer requirements. Please contact us if you have any questions.

General Questions

Which documents do you require to arrange the transfer?
We will require you to provide an international transfer form.  This is provided by BUPA UK and is completed by BUPA with all the information concerning your existing BUPA Policy.
Do I need to undergo a medical before the transfer can be arranged from BUPA?
No, only a statement of any pre-existing conditions (medical history) is required.
Will I have to wait a long time to continue my healthcare?
No, as long as the applications are complete and satisfactory, the transfer will take place within 14 days from the date they are received.
If I already have exclusions on my cover, what will happen?
These will be carried over from your BUPA policy, to your Sanitas policy.
Can I include an additional member when I transfer the policy?
Unfortunately no, it is necessary to be included on an existing BUPA policy in order to be part of a transfer.  New members will need to be accepted under separate, new policies.
I am already undergoing treatment with BUPA, will this be cancelled if I transfer?
No, your cover will continue, and so will your treatment.
If I am pregnant when I make the transfer, will I be covered?
If your BUPA policy covers you for your pregnancy, then this service will be transferred to Sanitas.
If my BUPA membership has expired, can I still transfer to Sanitas?
No, unless your premiums are paid up to date and there has been no break in your health insurance cover, you may not make a transfer.
Will you send me my new documents in the UK if I am still there?
It is possible for us to copy documents to the UK.  However, to become a Sanitas member, your policy must be registered to a Spanish address.
What else do I need to do to make sure the transfer is complete?
Nothing at all – provided you submit all the required information when you apply for the transfer.
What If I want to go back to the UK, can I reserve the transfer?
Yes of course.  The requirements remain the same – i.e. that your premiums are paid up to date and that you have not had any break in your cover.  Simply get in touch with BUPA UK or BUPA International and your transfer back will be arranged.
