Cancer healthcare plan is popular

A new cancer healthcare plan introduced by BHSF is now so popular that it is being made available in corporate flexible benefit policies.


High interest in the Plan4Life cancer cover has come it features lump sum cash payment on diagnosis of cancer which employees can spend as they choose as well as the underwriting practice of ignoring any previous family history of cancer which means the policy is available to a number of people who were excluded previously.


Brian Hall of BHSF says, “The new cancer plan is proving very popular with employees and it is important that we ensure all our corporate clients are able to offer the plan should they choose. Our client organisations are increasingly using flexible benefit platforms to deliver their employee benefits and so we have taken steps to make the product flex-compatible. The unique nature of the product is also opening new opportunities for us with organisations who have not previously been clients taking on the plan as a stand-alone benefit. We have had a number of flex benefit platform providers approach us to include the plan within their offering.”


The plan’s simplicity and low cost has also contributed to its popularity.
