The FBU-endorsed health cash plan can help you manage your everyday healthcare and wellbeing needs by allowing you to claim cash back on expenses such as dental check-ups and treatments, eyesight tests, new glasses, contact lenses, and therapy treatments such as physiotherapy, osteopathy, acupuncture and chiropractic treatment.

You can also claim towards diagnostic health consultations and health screening, or towards the expenses associated with hospital day-case surgery and in-patient stays (silver cover and above). You can even claim if you have a baby!

There are five levels of cover to choose from, and you can opt for a personal plan or a family plan to cover you, your partner and any dependents up to the age of 18 residing at your home address. Your premiums will be deducted from your salary, making the health cash plan a hassle-free way to enjoy saving on your everyday healthcare costs.

As an example, someone with level three personal cover at £18.50 a month could claim:

£150 towards dental costs

£150 towards optical costs

£500 towards therapy treatments including physiotherapy, osteopathy, chiropractic and acupuncture

Plus many more benefits

So, if you regularly visit the dentist or optician, or need therapy treatments such as physiotherapy and osteopathy, the FBU health cash plan could help you.

It’s quick and easy to claim; simply complete your claim form and return it to BHSF along with the receipt for your treatment.  Claims are paid directly to you, normally within two to three working days.

FBU members can also benefit from immediate benefit, meaning you can claim from the start date of your policy, with the exception of maternity benefit (10 month qualifying period) and pre-existing medical conditions for hospital-related claims (2 years).
