CVS launches free health cash plan for colleagues

CVS Group has launched a free health cash plan for CVS colleagues in the UK and Republic of Ireland to support their health and well-being

CVS Group has launched a new health cash plan to look after its colleagues’ financial, physical and mental well-being.

The cash plan, available on an opt-in basis to all CVS colleagues* in the UK and ROI, is part of the company’s long-term vision to be the veterinary company people most want to work for. 

It will enable colleagues to claim back the cost of a range of medical treatments including dental, optical, physiotherapy and specialist consultations.

All claims will be paid within five working days.

The free CVS health cash plan also offers additional services, including access to unlimited GP telephone and video appointments 24 hours a day, “mywellness” well-being tools and online health assessments.

Dependent children (up to the age of 18 in full-time education) are automatically covered, and colleagues can also add a partner to their plan.

In addition to the free health cash plan, CVS is offering UK colleagues access to competitively priced private medical insurance.

Those joining this scheme are given virtual GP services and fast track referrals to specialists, plus access to private hospitals, tests and eligible treatment when needed.

The scheme also includes physiotherapy, health issues, and counselling and support services, both for work-related and personal issues.

As an extra supplement, CVS is also making critical illness cover and life insurance available to colleagues at competitive rates as a financial safety net to protect them and their family.

Helen Finney, group HR director at CVS, said: “During this cost-of-living crisis, it is even more important for us to help fund and support the health of our team.

“Our new schemes will further help colleagues to look after their financial, physical and mental well-being and access treatment and support as and when they need it.”

The new colleague benefit schemes are open to UK CVS colleagues to opt in to, and new starters also have the opportunity to join any of the new benefits schemes upon joining CVS.
