Vebnet to offer Family Homecare plan from Allianz Global Assistance
Vebnet has today announced they will be the first UK-based Reward and Benefits provider to offer Allianz Global Assistance’s Family Homecare plan. The product will be available from 1 October 2012.
Family Homecare ensures employees will be looked after and assisted should they experience an accident or sudden illness. Importantly, partners and parents can also be added to the cover.
Family Homecare offers a range of tailored services including:
- Personal assistance
- Domestic assistance / household duties
- Prescription collection
- Escorting to medical appointments
- Ironing and laundry
- Preparation of light meals
James Hall, Head of Healthcare and Risk Solutions, Vebnet Services said: “We continually monitor employee benefit trends to ensure we design offerings which fit employees’ needs and lifestyles. While there are many health related benefits available that provide cover for employees and immediate family members, very few employers offer employees the option to provide support and care for their parents.
“Family Homecare helps minimise the impact of any unforeseen accident or illness on an employee’s life by stepping in to support the daily demands associated with recuperating at home. It’s a great product which provides peace of mind for everyone affected.”
Phil Carr, Head of Business Development for Allianz Global Assistance in the UK, added: “It has been an exciting challenge building this brand new product and officially marking the entry of Allianz Global Assistance into the UK Homecare Services market. We have worked closely with Vebnet to produce a benefit which meets the needs and desires of their clients, whilst remaining affordable. We look forward to developing more exciting new products in the future.”
Vebnet is currently the only UK-based Reward and Benefits provider able to offer Family Homecare.
