What if I disagree with a payment that is shown on my statement?

If you disagree with an online payment that is shown on your statement, the matter should be brought to the attention of your financial institution immediately. Your financial institution will then initiate an investigation at your request.

If you have any questions, you should call your financial institution.

How can I prove I made an online payment?

Can I part-pay my bill/notice using Bupa WebPay?

Yes. However please note that you must pay your health insurance premium in full to ensure your membership is current and you're entitled to claim for any benefits you may have received.

Is a payment made with my credit card treated as a cash advance or as an electronic transaction by my financial institution?

Financial institutions should treat online payments made via Bupa WebPay as electronic purchases rather than cash advances. For more information about the charges that your financial institution may apply for these types of transactions, please contact them directly.

The Bupa Terms and Conditions are found in the footer of each page on the Bupa web site.

The Bupa WebPay service enables you to pay your Bupa bills/notices using your credit card. It's a quick and convenient way to pay bills/notices over the internet.

Will Bupa charge me any costs for the service?

Bupa does not charge you a fee for using our Bupa WebPay service.

Trouble Shooting 

The service is really slow. Why does it take so long for me to access it?

A number of factors can affect the speed of your internet connection. These include the speed at which your modem has connected to your ISP, the number of other connections your ISP is currently handling and the amount of traffic on the internet itself all impact on the speed of your connection.

Secure sites contain a lot more data than the equivalent unsecured site and this also contributes to the speed of accessing the site.

One last thing to note is that you will generally experience faster internet performance during off-peak hours. Off peak times are during weekdays and after midnight. These are good times to make an online payment. Peak internet times are evenings and weekends.

What if the web pay service is unavailable?

If you receive a message saying the online payment service is unavailable, please try clicking the refresh button on your browser at the top of the screen. If the service is still unavailable please try again later. Service interruptions are rare, but if they do occur Bupa will work to get the service back online as soon as possible. Alternatively, please use one of the other payment methods listed on your health insurance bill/notice.

The system logged me out without notice. What shall I do?

Our system automatically logs you out after 30 minutes use. If this happens simply log back in. This security feature helps ensure that no unauthorised access of your online payment details occurs.
