Health insurance provider launches new NHS supplementary insurance plan

WPA, the health insurance provider, has launched an NHS supplementary insurance plan that employers can offer staff to help pay for extras.

Its NHS Top-up plan provides premiums which start at 92p per employee per week and cash back levels up to 100 per cent. Included in the benefits are optical and dental, NHS car parking, top-up cancer drugs, special consultations and second opinions, top-up European EHIC cover including air ambulance repatriation, 24/7 medical helpline, GP services and therapies such as physiotherapy and chiropractic treatment. There are also top-up extras such as cosmetic surgery, health screening and allergy testing .

Adrian Humphreys, managing director of WPA’s corporate customers, said: “For companies which want to value and reward their staff but where the bottom-line pay rises, budgets and allowances are continuously squeezed, NHS Top-up is one of the few benefits that has a perceived benefit well in excess of actual cost.”
