Benenden Health - there for you throughout your life

Health and wellbeing are at the heart of Benenden. Our aim is to provide peace of mind with a range of products, so we can be there for you when you need our help - whether you’re at home or away. So you can be supported by a brand you trust, wherever you are. 

1. Helping you live every day to the full

Support through early detection with health assessments

The NHS Health Check is estimated to have prevented 2,500 heart attacks or strokes in its first five years, due to people receiving post-check treatment. However, an NHS health check is 20 to 30 minutes long and only available via invitation to 40 to 74-year-olds.

A comprehensive health assessment is a way of taking proactive action to help identify health risks before they become serious and to flag up any early intervention that might be needed. Our most popular assessment, ‘Advanced’, includes investigations such as bowel cancer screening, blood tests to check organ function and many other investigations not available in a standard NHS check-up.

2. Care and support when something unexpected happens

Helping you get back to good health with your personal healthcare

In 2016, we provided help more than 86,000 times to members through consultations, tests, treatments and information services such as a 24/7 GP Helpline – that’s the reassurance of Benenden Personal Healthcare.

Protection with travel insurance

It’s reported that 22% of people travelling abroad don’t take out travel insurance. But medical bills can be high if you’re not covered. Our members asked us for a travel insurance product that considers all ages and medical conditions, and we have delivered this.

Peace of mind with home insurance

The Association of British Insurers reported in 2015 that 46% of UK home insurance claims were caused by weather and escape of water. To help avoid the stress such damage can cause, we’ve teamed up with Royal & Sun Alliance Insurance plc to offer building and contents cover. Personalise your home insurance quote in 5 minutes

3. Helping you to plan for future routine healthcare

Health Cash Plan

Dental patient charges increased by £25.3 million in 2015-16, according to the NHS. To help manage these costs, and those of other routine health appointments, Benenden’s new health cash plan offers money back on regular trips to the dentist, optician and more. Exclusions and limits apply. Find out more about how our health cash plan could work for you


Why do we offer more than personal healthcare?

Benenden’s aim is to support you and your family with what matters most – your health and wellbeing. That’s why we continue to invest in improving our services, while bringing out new products such as travel insurance and a health cash plan to support you further in more aspects of your wellbeing. As we have a large community of members, we can negotiate good deals and offers through the products we develop for members. Because Benenden is a not-for-profit, if members take up these products, members benefit, as surplus funds are invested back into the community, helping us to support more members’ needs.
