Law firm DWF has introduced an employer-paid health cash plan for more than 500 employees. This excludes partners who already receive private medical insurance.
Through the cash plan, provided by Medicash, employees can access a range of benefits, including health screening and the Best Doctors advisory service.
Jane O’Connell at DWF, explains, “We wanted to give all our employees access to some sort of health provision. We want to make sure that we have a healthy workforce and promote that as much as possible. The cash plan gives people instant access to something that they might not otherwise choose to have.”
