Are You Eligible for Help Paying for Your Acupuncture Treatment?
It is always worth checking with your employer if you are eligible for private health insurance or a health cash plan. Insurance will often pay the entire cost of your appointments, and cash plans will often cover 50% of costs.
What is a Health Cash Plan?
A health cash plan is an easy-to-use health insurance package that provides cashback towards your everyday healthcare bills.
Ask You Employer If You Are Eligible...
Simply Health Corporate Policy: Many large employers such as the NHS and Local Authority staff (such as teachers and social workers), as well as the larger Supermarkets and Banks, are likely to be signed up to this cash plan. The policy is not listed on the Simply Health website but, if you are eligible, you can call their Customer Services on 0370 9083481 and ask to be sent an email detailing what you are entitled to.
