The relaunch of a health cash plan for businesses by Medicash is proving popular.
Medicash Reward increased cash back limits for members, added recovery of voluntary excess costs on private medical insurance that can allow them to dramatically reduce their annual PMI premiums. Members can also claim back specialist consultation costs. The Best Doctors service allows members to access expert second medical opinion though a dedicated helpline accessing advice from a panel of over 50,000 world leading physicians. Worksite health screening is another feature of the plan. The dental benefit includes cover against the cost of dental care contracts.
Sue Weir for Medicash says, “The new Medicash Reward is an exciting landmark in terms of product innovation for us. We constantly have to evolve our products to reflect a fast-moving marketplace and have been consulting extensively with members to develop a plan that had maximum appeal.”
Staffords, specialists in office equipment repair and maintenance, is one business that values the benefit. Dave Lathom, says, “We find corporate health screening serves to reassure staff who enjoy good health, providing them with information about maintaining good health, fitness and wellbeing. For one of our employees health screening even proved life-saving when diabetes was diagnosed, a condition his doctor had failed to spot.”
