If you’re worried about a health issue, you can get answers fast thanks to your favourite cashback site and Lime.

We know that if you’re worried about your health, you just want to get an answer as quickly as possible.

Thanks to us, you now have early access to Rapid Diagnostics, provided by Lime, which offers quick access to diagnostic tests at more than 5,000 private health facilities nationwide for a fraction of the cost of traditional health insurance.

As an added bonus, we’re offering you the chance to earn £10 in cashback* on an already affordable price**.

Rapid Diagnostics is not yet available to the general public and this exclusive £10 cashback offer can’t be found anywhere else.

Did you know?

As of December 2020, one in three of almost 1.2 million people waiting for diagnostic tests on the NHS had been waiting more than six weeks***.

Anyone can pay to use private health facilities, but it can be really expensive. An MRI scan, for example, can cost as much as £1,275****.

Typical comprehensive private medical insurance for a person in their 40s costs more than £107 per month*****.

Lime recognised this was out of reach for many, so developed a series of affordable top-ups to public healthcare which provide key benefits of private health cover just where it matters.

Rapid Diagnostics cover from Lime offers private access to some of the most commonly needed diagnostic tests at an affordable price, with nothing extra to pay if you claim. There is no excess and no penalties, while everything is managed online — which Lime believe is totally unique.

How does it work?

After you purchase Rapid Diagnostics cover, you’ll pay a monthly premium. You can then use the service if you’re worried about a health issue and want an answer fast.

The first step is to speak to a GP. Unlimited access to a virtual GP service is included with Rapid Diagnostics, so you can either make an appointment for a consultation or, if you prefer, make an appointment with your own GP in the usual way.

If you need a test, the virtual GP will be able to refer you immediately, or if you see your own GP, you’ll just need to upload a referral form to your online account page.

Within 48 hours of your GP referral confirmation, you’ll be able to attend your test appointment — just tell Lime when and where is most convenient.

After your diagnostic test, your results will be sent to you and your NHS GP fast — typically within three working days.

That’s it. There’s nothing extra to pay, no receipts to upload and no waiting around.

Lime Cover

All online but with you in mind

You can manage everything 24/7 via your Lime online account.

You’ll never need to pay anything other than your agreed monthly premium, there’s no excess and you won’t need to wait to be reimbursed because no money changes hands. Lime take care of everything.

You can access up to £2,250 worth of diagnostic tests per policy year in the first two years (your maximum benefit allowance). This increases to £3,000 in year three and £3,750 in year five.

Tests include X-ray, MRI, MRI with contrast, ECG, EECG, CT, CT with contrast and ultrasound.

Premiums are taken on a monthly basis and you have 14 days (cooling off period) to change your mind.

It’s incredibly quick and easy to get a quote, and the price you see is the price you’ll pay every month until your policy renews or you decide to cancel, which you can do at any time without penalty.

Instead of paying an excess and to avoid annoying paperwork, Lime use something called a waiting period at the start of the policy.

This means you just need to wait 60 days from the day you purchase until you can use the policy for the first time. After that, you’re good to go.
