HSA offers corporate cash plan

Healthcare cashplan provider HSA is aiming a plan at the corporate market as part of its campaign to raise awareness of the value of the product as a staff benefit.

The plan includes health screening and a change of job feature as well as 100 per cent cover on all optical and dental costs plus 75 per cent on a series of other treatments including physiotherapy, osteopathy, chiropractic, acupuncture and homoeopathy.

For premiums of £6.80 a week, a family of four can get cover worth £5,500 while individual premiums start at £1.70 a week.

The change of job feature allows planholders to switch employers but retain their benefits by waiving all premiums for one month.

Marketing and sales director Chris Harrison says: “Everyday health plans should be ranked as one of the most important and cost-effective employee benefits as they can aid staff retention and the management of sickness absence. But simplicity is crucial both to the employers and their employees and this is what we have endeavoured to achieve with our latest launch.”
