HSF health plan - A bit about us and what we do.
HSF health plan is an employee health benefits provider. It is the trading company of the charity, The Hospital Saturday Fund.
We provide employee cash plans to help cover the cost of everyday health care expenses like GP fees, prescription costs, dental fees and glasses. Benefits include hospital, physiotherapy and complementary treatments, specialist consultations, health screening, personal injury and eye laser surgery. We also provide an Employee Assistance programme, HSF Assist® which includes access to a GP Advice Line, Virtual Doctor and Counselling Service.
Unlike other types of health insurance HSF health plan schemes are not claims or age related. Our plans can be used as a complement to exiting PMI Schemes or as an alternative. HSF health plan is available to UCD Employees at a discounted premium and with our Family schemes, spouse/partner and any dependent children under age 21 can be included on cover at no extra cost.
Everyone who joins HSF health plan, just by belonging, are making a contribution to the important work of the charity, as the profits from the health cash plan go to the parent charity. Not something which usually happens when an insurance policy is taken out.
For more information on HSF health plan please contact us on 1890 451 451 or email enquires@hsf.ie
