An attractive alternative to private health care.
When illness strikes, the cost can be considerable, even routine healthcare such as dental treatment is becoming increasingly costly. Medicash has been helping people to cope with healthcare costs since it was established in 1871. Medicash is not private health insurance, but acknowledges that time away from work can mean extra costs for you and your family. At those times, Medicash can come quickly to your aid, providing ready cash when you really need it.
Medicash offers 21 tax free benefits, including hospital and maternity admission; recuperation grants; physiotherapy; sight tests; dentistry and homehelp grants.
The Medicash Scheme offers 3 types of membership - Standard, Dual and Family - with 3 levels within each - Bronze, Silver and Gold. There is a Medicash option to suit most domestic situations and financial circumstances - with Standard Bronze cover starting from as little as £1.05 per week.
To find out more about Medicash, contact a HR Assistant on Ext: 6130 or 6131 to request a form.
