Westfield Health has increased reimbursement levels on its most popular benefits following a comprehensive review of its core health cash plans.
The review of Westfield’s Advantage and Good4you Plans has resulted in new additions, improvements and changes.
In response to policyholder research, optical, dental and dental trauma benefits have each been increased by an average of five per cent and the daily allowance on the day surgery benefit has been increased by an average of 10 per cent.
Additionally, the hospital in-patient benefit allowance has been reduced from 30 to 20 nights to reflect the decrease in the average length of hospital stays.
Advantage and Good4you Plan premiums have increased for the first time in almost four years in order to sustain viability. The price rises are modest with, for example, level 1 of the Advantage Plan increasing by 6p per week and level 1 of the Good4you Plan increasing by 13p per week.
Westfield has brought reimbursement rates on level 5 in line with levels 1 to 4. This means that 100 per cent reimbursement is available on the most valued benefits – optical, dental and dental trauma, while 75 per cent reimbursement is available on the chiropody, consultation, therapies, homeopathy, home care, surgical appliance and health screening benefits.
