The new products, which will be launched for all Flex schemes starting from January 2013, will offer a choice between a comprehensive health cash plan or one that removes the dental benefit. This is said to provide clients with the option of dovetailing the health cash plan with a standalone dental plan product.
Dental is consistently the third most popular benefit, according to recent industry research. Health Shield’s new schemes have been developed — through a dedicated product development focus group — to reflect this level of demand.
From January, Health Shield will offer four different Flexible Benefits schemes: Flex (three levels) and Flex Extra (five levels) — with or without dental. The Flex product range is designed to slot into any Flexible Benefits platform and can be provided on a voluntary or company-sponsored arrangement.
