from initial contact to claim to the decision took over 3 weeks. They declined my claim despite never having my current complaint before. This company is not a company to do business with. I have today cancelled my account with them. To make matters worse this was my first claim. Dont be fooled by what they tell you to get your money. Stay well clear. You have been warned.

10 years a customer, never claimed once, pay over 100 monthly. During pandemic i call only to be told I cannot see a GP.

Soon after i want to cancel then they start dragging their feet until i become confrontational.

There are some experiences we shouldn't go through in life, this is one expensive experience. I am here to advise people to avoid such experiences as it never ends in your favour

I paid up to this service through my company healthcare. It has been the case of endless calls and emails; endless assurances that they will set up my account.
Beyond being frustrating, Aviva have proven themselves incompetent and incapable of even setting up customers who have paid for the service.
Right now, over a month has passed by and I have no access to this 'benefit'. I've used other private health providers for most of my adult life. Aviva is by far the WORST.
Avoid at all costs.

As quite a few others here, after many years of paying my fees and never claiming, I found myself in need of a doctor consultation online and I tried to obtain one through their promised online doctor appointment service. The first obstacle, you have to do it through their app: this turns out to be cumbersome, unfriendly, unnecessarily complicated, obtuse and over demanding. I am not sure if this app has been designed with an intent of taking the mickey or just by a bunch of unqualified ignorant but arrogant dunces. Never mind, however, once you have done all you had to do, including finding an access code which should be in your policy but isn't, you find that it does not work. It just doesn't. There is a number for support but it does not answer except with a message that they don't take calls because of the current situation. Thanks a bunch, you thieves. Shame on you Aviva, I spent so many thousands with you over the years and this is what I get the first time I need you. Shame.

Aviva Pension

Spoke to Lee Johnstone to inform of my husband's passing and make a claim on his pension. Lee was so helpful and patient, considering I had to go off to find relevant documentation. I kept apologising and he was so reasurring and didn't mind holding....

Spoke to Lee Johnstone to inform of my husband's passing and make a claim on his pension. Lee was so helpful and patient, considering I had to go off to find relevant documentation. I kept apologising and he was so reasurring and didn't mind holding. Really appreciate the dedication during this difficult situation the country is currently facing

Champions in red tape

I know they are a business but have their business plan in a mess. Instead of making money from loyal customers I think they are on a push to make as much as possible by ripping off loyal customers. Policies flying up, service dropping like a led balloon. I have made one claim in 5 years and been stung. £7,000 out on policies and £600 of treatment which I had to pay £300 of. Policy went up £400 this year for daring to use policy. What made things even worse was having decent hospitals taken off my list without information. Son had seizure and was sent 2 hours to a house in a shocking part of London down some rough side street into someone's dirty house Aviva called a clinic. I called so called clinic to ask where I could parked and was told "that's not my problem, find one yourself".
Shocking from start to finish.

The claims assistant was desperate to categorise my referral to a cardiologist as a pre-existing condition. I reported slight heart tremors in June but was given the ok by doctor. He asked how long had I had the heart tremors and he was desperate for it to be 3 months so it was before my policy started. No it isn’t the same thing, no it isn’t a pre-existing condition. I now have to wait four weeks for a doctors appointment to fill out a form then a further five days for Aviva to make a decision. Unacceptable. I would be seen quicker with the NHS (that’s if I haven’t collapsed with heart failure by then).
