Health cash plans from Medicash are expected to see a boost
in popularity following the latest price increases for NHS dental treatment.
The increases in charges will come into force on 1 April
2012 and will mean that the price for Band 3 treatment covering crowns,
dentures and bridges will be as high as £209. Treatment falling into Bands 1
and 2 are increasing to £17.50 and £48 respectively.
Sue Weir of Medicash says, “Previous increases in NHS
pricing have generated a rise in the number of health cash plans being taken
out so we fully anticipate another such rise to emanate from this change.”
