No two people or companies are the same. So, when it comes to health cash plans it makes perfect sense that one size does not fit all.
Some businesses benefit from a tailored scheme that’s designed precisely for their employees, while others are better suited to a pre-packaged off-the-shelf health cash plan.
Bespoke plans are extremely flexible and can help meet the changing needs of any business.
For example, Health Shield’s unique tailored scheme software package creates real-time quotes; a flexible solution that allows companies to explore a variety of different options and health cash plan packages.
It enables businesses to make comparisons and add or remove benefits to provide a bespoke, high quality healthcare cash plan – in some instances across an extensive workforce.
The proof, as they say, is in the pudding; Health Shield recently introduced a tailored health cash plan for electrical retail giant, Comet, rolling the scheme out to every one of its 7,500 employees.
The end result is an exclusive, personalised scheme incorporating both the company name and logo.
At the other end of the scale sit two of Health Shield’s most popular products over the last 12 months – Essentials and Essentials Plus, which also includes an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP).
These are company-funded, off-the-shelf products aimed primarily at organisations with fewer than 100 employees.
The packages carry a diverse range of benefits and a large number of organisations have signed up to the plans for as little as 75 pence per week.
Members can claim 100 per cent of their chosen maximum on a wide selection of health care costs. These include: dental, optical, health & wellbeing, physiotherapy, specialist consultation, chiropody and health screenings.
Whatever sector, size or specialism, businesses can benefit from health cash plans that help to form part of a wider healthcare benefits programme for employees across the UK.
