Saga Health Insurance extends cover

26 September 2005
Saga Health Insurance is adding a new dimension to its health cash plan, offering higher payments for everyday healthcare and specialist treatment.

In response to customer demand, Cash Plan level three includes a new range of benefits including up to £190 of dental and optical treatment and up to £600 for therapies including physiotherapy and osteopathy.

Chief executive at Saga, Andrew Goodsell, said: "The lack of NHS provision for dentistry, chiropody and chiropractic treatment has driven many people to go private.

"People are increasingly looking for ways to offset the cost of these treatments, which is when health cash plans become particularly useful."

The private health insurance company believes dental treatment makes up a third of claims and Saga has seen an increase of five per cent in claims in the last year.

According to Saga, the new, higher level of cover completes its portfolio of Health Cash Plans, which now offers a range of plans to suit every budget.
