Bupa Cash Plan

Loughborough University offers all employees the opportunity to join the Bupa Cash Plan Scheme.

Health cash plans are designed to help you cover the costs of some routine healthcare expenses and offer cash back towards a variety of health and well-being benefits, including dental and optical fees.

What’s the difference between a cash plan and health insurance?

Health insurance covers the cost of surgical and non-surgical procedures when you need them, whereas a health cash plan offers cash back towards a range of health costs that you may pay for as a part of maintaining the health of you or your family.

With a lower level of cover than health insurance, a health cash plan could be a more affordable option for you to claim back some money against routine healthcare costs.

What cashback can you expect?

The benefits of a health cash plan are dependent on your weekly contribution level and are also set by BUPA themselves. The below examples give you an idea of what you could be entitled to via the plan:

And all from as little as £2 a week! For further information and to download an application form, visit the Bupa website.


Advice on your health and wellbeing

Healthy living is about making sure your physical, mental and social needs are met so you can achieve your full potential, and a busy lifestyle can make it difficult to prioritise caring for your health. In a bid to help you be strong in your working, family and social life, we offer an advisory service for employees to seek advice and guidance on topics such as dealing with pressure, eating well, family health, and sleep.


Discretionary death in service payment

Although we hope to never have to make these payments, as an employee at Loughborough you are also entitled to a discretionary death in service payment. This means that should anything happen to you, a one-off payment will be made to your family to aid and support them.

In addition to this, both pension schemes available at the University also offer generous payments for death in service.
