Health Shield launches cash plans for SMEs

Health Shield has launched two health cash plans specifically designed for small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with three employees or more.

The Elements plan, which will be available from January 2013, provides a range of benefits, including: dental, optical, chiropody, specialist consultations, health and wellbeing, health screening, online health risk assessments, and a 24/7 GP helpline.

The Elements Plus plan includes all of the above benefits as well as access to an employee assistance programme (EAP), which includes face-to-face counselling.

Philip Wood, executive director of sales and marketing at Health Shield, said: “We have developed Elements and Elements Plus to meet the needs of employers, whatever the shape and size of their business.”
