preventative healthcare

Preventative healthcare matters.

There are two components to preventative care—the services provided by health professionals, and the initiative you take yourself to manage your own wellness. When combined, both components exist in an effort to prevent and detect disease or medical issues.

Take care of yourself. With BF&M, you can.

We offer a robust set of benefits for both our Individual and Group Health customers.

on the plan selected by yourself and/or your employer.

We are constantly seeking to improve our benefits. During 2020, BF&M expanded our WorldCare Second Opinion service to include a new mental health product, which enables virtual access to professionals who can diagnose, recommend treatment, and answer your questions, all from the comfort of your home and at no additional cost to you.

What’s the difference between preventative and diagnostic screenings?

Preventative screenings are completed when you are symptom-free and are scheduled based upon your age and health history. Diagnostic screenings are completed to detect health issues in response to symptoms being present.

Talk to your healthcare professional about what’s best for you.

Managing your health is a partnership between you and your healthcare professional. Together, you can determine the most appropriate screening schedule and immunisations based on your age and medical history.


Cancer causes 1 in 3 of all deaths in Bermuda, and the International Agency for Research on Cancer estimates a 67% increase in cancer deaths in the next two decades.

Here in Bermuda, we face a triple burden of an aging population, a transition to lifestyle-related diseases, and infection-related cancers. Cancer is set to rise as a health and economic burden because of increasing population risks (particularly obesity) and increasing costs of treatment. All parts of our society, from policymakers and healthcare providers, to the general public need to be aware of this and plan accordingly. Nearly 50% of cancers are linked to lifestyle choices, your choices make a difference.
