Latest mutual team up improves access to health cover for those over 65

Members of Benenden Healthcare Society aged 66 and over can now access a health cash plan product, thanks to the Society’s latest team-up with fellow Yorkshire mutual, Engage Mutual Assurance.

Benenden Healthcare’s wholly owned subsidiary, the Friendly Healthcare Organisation Limited (FHOL) is bringing the new ‘Benenden Health Cash Plan 66+’ to Society members for the start of 2012 – with Engage Mutual providing the plan.

Two of the UK’s leading mutual organisations, Benenden Healthcare and Engage Mutual consolidated their relationship in 2011. Engage Mutual also provides two of FHOL’s other products for Benenden Healthcare members – the ‘Benenden Health Cash Plan’ (for members aged 65 and under) and the recently launched ‘Benenden Over 50s Life Cover’.

This latest development continues Benenden Healthcare Society’s ambitious plans to extend its offering to its members.

Marc Bell, Marketing & Business Strategy Director at Benenden Healthcare and Director of FHOL said: ‘It’s a great achievement to be able to end the past twelve months on a high note having brought three new products to our members. This has been a landmark year for the Society and a perfect catalyst for aiming even higher in 2012.

‘With the addition of the 66+ cash plan, Society members of all ages now have the opportunity to apply for a cash plan product. The cash plans, coupled with our ever-improving core product, gives a whole new level of healthcare reassurance.’

‘Working with a fellow mutual organisation in Engage Mutual has been a significant factor in being able to improve our range of products.’

Karl Elliott, marketing director at Engage Mutual said: ‘The introduction of an over 65s health cash plan ensures that FHOL’s health cash plan provision is a comprehensive proposition for Benenden Healthcare members.  The plan, which provides cash back to help with everyday healthcare costs, can now be made available to all Society members, regardless of their age.’

The ‘Benenden Health Cash Plan 66+’ is available to members and nominees of the Benenden Healthcare Society aged 66 and over (those aged 65 and under can still apply for the current Benenden Health Cash Plan). There are single plans and joint plans available with three levels of cover from which to select. For the joint plans, both applicants must be aged 66 or over. There is no upper age limit on applying for the plans.

Similarly to the current Benenden Health Cash Plan, it offers cash back on a range of everyday healthcare costs including dental treatments, optical expenses and complementary therapies. In addition it provides cash back on hearing aids.  Upper plan levels also provide cash back for outpatient and inpatient visits.

Monthly premiums start at £10 per month (equivalent to £2.30 per week).
