ECIS (Electrical Contractors Insurance Services) has launched a comprehensive new Dental Plan in association with National Dental Plan (NDP).
With this policy, electrical contractors and construction firms with more than 4 employees can provide their staff with access to dental treatment.
There are five NDP ‘Radiant' plans to choose from, including cover for children and partners, as well as worldwide treatment on work or holiday trips.
The plans also provide emergency treatment and cover for sports-related dental injuries, depending on the needs of the individual. With the exclusion of mouth cancer, all pre-existing conditions are covered and no dental health checks are required prior to joining.
The ECIS Dental Plan reimburses NHS costs in full, offering a free choice of dentist. The plan also operates a simple claims procedure and prompt settlement, the insurer said.
"With 75% of adults stating cost as the main reason for not going to the dentist, this Dental Plan is a valuable addition to any electrical contractor or construction company's employee benefits scheme," said Phil Scarrett, sales and marketing director of ECIC.
Andrew Bower, managing director at NDP said: "There are many benefits to a corporate dental plan for both an employer and its employees. While helping employees with dental charges, dental plans promote good dental health among a workforce, which can help an employer reduce absenteeism."
Phil continued, "In an increasingly competitive marketplace as a recovery in the construction sector starts to take hold, firms need to attract and retain the best talent. A flexible dental programme, such as this, supported by NDP, can be built into existing wellbeing and employee benefit schemes, helping construction companies stand out as preferred employers."
