BCWA Healthcare is to maintain premiums for its Confident Dental Health Cover plan, while increasing many benefit levels by between 17.5% and 50%.
Sales and marketing director for BCWA Healthcare, Phillip Fowles, said: “This is good news for both small and large company schemes and is the second time in succession that rates have been held.”
He added that the success of the plan lay in it being an insurance, rather than capitation plan, meaning employees did not have to take a dental health check before companies signed up.
“These changes take place for any new business on or after 1 August,” said Fowles. “Existing schemes renewing after that date will get the benefit of additional cover without an increase in price.”
