Cash Plan

Cashplan

Cash plans help your corporate clients deliver valuable workplace benefits to their employees.

With more and more employers looking to manage their employee benefits costs, but also offer a compelling package that helps recruit and retain their staff, cash plans offer a great solution. Cash plans offer cover that their employees really value, but at a cost which many employers are happy to pay.

For companies

Our One Fund plan provides cover for companies who want their staff to benefit from valuable cover against healthcare costs.

Tailor to your needs

The One Fund plan has 7 premium levels and can either be company paid or employee paid.

Existing policyholders

All One Fund customers are now able to claim online using our simple new portal, available by clicking here.

One Fund – for companies

One Fund

One Fund is our innovative cash plan designed for companies. It is a different approach to cash plan design, giving each individual covered the flexibility to tailor their own plan to their individual needs, putting them in control.

One Fund is available in company paid and employee paid variants, giving firms the ability to tailor their benefit provision to their needs.

Benefits of Cash Plans for Companies

Your corporate clients will be only too aware that the health and happiness of their staff can have a huge impact on business success. So, if they can give their workforce a way to help budget for and manage the costs of their healthcare, it can only be a good thing.

Some of the benefits to businesses of including a cash plan within their employee benefits package include:

  • Improved staff morale and company culture
  • Earlier and better absence management
  • Enhanced benefits package to help attract new staff
  • Help manage the cost of group private medical insurance schemes by covering some of the smaller claims that could otherwise increase PMI premiums.

How One Fund works

Each employee has access to an annual pot of money. When they receive a treatment covered by the policy, they simply send the receipt to us (within 3 months) to claim some or all of the costs back – the exact amount will depend on the plan limits and any excess that applies.

Any valid claims will be paid direct to the chosen bank account within 3 working days.

You can provide the One Fund as an employee benefit, as a key part of your support to your employees. Alternatively you can give them access to the scheme for them to pay their premiums by Direct Debit or via your payroll.

Does cover extend to family members?

Yes, each employee has the option to add partners for the cost of an equivalent premium on the employee paid policy, and you can also cover partners should you wish on the company paid scheme.

Children can also be added to cover and share the adult’s cover allowance, although they aren’t covered for health screening or counselling.

Benefit categories

There are 7 categories of benefit, each of which is subject to limits:

  • Dental
    Most NHS and private non-cosmetic dental treatment.
  • Optical
    Eye tests, prescription glasses and contact lenses.
  • Consultations & diagnostics
    Investigative tests and diagnostic care.
  • Health screening
    Including full health screens, well man and well woman screens recommended by a GP.
  • Counselling
    Face to face sessions with trained counsellors, plus a 24-hour counselling telephone helpline.
  • Complementary therapies
    Physiotherapy, osteopathy, chiropractic, acupuncture and homeopathy.
  • PMI excess cover
    Payment of a plan holder’s private medical insurance excess.

Cover levels

Cover starts from just £11 per month and is available in 7 levels – the higher the premium, the higher the total fund will be.

The premium paid each month will be calculated from the number of plans, multiplied by the individual premiums which apply at the time. Any partners must be covered at the same premium level as the employee who pays for their plan.

Premiums can be paid on behalf of employees, or employers can provide it as an optional benefit – where the employee pays for their own cover.

Company paid - for five or more employees

Employee paid

Excess

The £50 excess only applies to the dental and optical benefit categories and is applied once per plan per year on each of these benefits – but it doesn’t apply to eye tests.

Once the excess is paid, further benefit can be claimed without any further reduction.
