WPA: Specialist not-for-profit UK health insurer

WPA is a specialist not-for-profit UK health insurer with a history of over 115 years. Our strong customer service ethos is vitally important to us – we have no shareholder dividends to satisfy so any profit is reinvested into the business. Our purpose is to provide our members with access to the very best healthcare available in the UK.

Our specialist in-house clinical teams provide dedicated and personal claims management to support members with complex clinical needs. Our Chief Medical Officer heads up our Medical Advisory and Clinical Governance Committee (MACGC), a group of practicing specialists across multiple disciplines who advise us on the benefit of existing and new methods of treatment. We’re all highly trained, knowledgeable and passionate about helping our members. We’re ready to help when you need us.
