Back and Neck Programme
Back and neck pain is the most common form of pain – often with no treatment options. The back and neck care programme helps you manage severe back and neck pain by offering a personalised treatment plan for up to 6 weeks. The plan includes assistance from doctors, physiotherapists and biokineticists. In addition, you will also receive a home care plan to maintain your results long-term. The programme is highly effective and low-risk, with an excellent success rate. Bonitas covers the full cost of the programme so it won’t impact your savings or day-to-day benefits.
Please call us on 0860 105 104 to be referred to your nearest treatment centre. You will need to complete an assessment to determine if you are a suitable candidate for the programme.
Being diagnosed with cancer can be devastating. Our cancer care programme aims to soften the blow by offering emotional, medical and financial support during this time. The cancer programme puts you first and delivers cost-effective care of the highest quality. We liaise with your doctor on your treatment plan to ensure that it is the most clinically appropriate plan to meet your specific needs. We then match the treatment plan to your benefits to ensure you have the cover you need and can focus on getting better.

The Bonitas Diabetes Management programme helps members with diabetes better understand this long-term condition and empowers them to make the right decisions to stay healthy.

The care plan will provide cover for the tests required for the management of diabetes as well as your other chronic conditions. It offers access to specialised diabetes doctors, dieticians, podiatrists and diabetic educators to allow you to effectively manage your diabetes. In addition, you will have access to a dedicated Health Coach to answer any questions you may have.
