What is WHA?
WHA is a not-for-profit company which operates a range of low cost schemes to help its members with the everyday costs of staying healthy.
What can WHA do for me?
When you join WHA, you can claim cash benefits for the wide range of health treatments and services shown in the Table of Benefits. These cash benefits will help you with the costs of your treatment and can even help with the unexpected costs which can occur when you have to go to hospital.
What are the benefits?
There are 12 different cash benefits. These are shown in the Table of Benefits and include cover towards the cost of optical care, dental treatment, physiotherapy, osteopathy and chiropody, for example. In addition, there are cash benefits for each day spent in hospital as an inpatient and for attendances as a hospital outpatient. We also have personal accident cover for members which pays a lump sum in the event of death or injury as a result of an accident.
What will it cost?
There are four personal scheme subscription rates starting from as little as £7.00 a month for cover for yourself only. We also have four partners’ scheme rates starting at £14.00 per month which would cover you and your spouse/partner.
What about claims?
WHA has an excellent reputation for settling claims speedily. Normally claims are processed within 48 hours! There’s no limit to the number of claims you can make. Claims are only limited by the maximum amount applicable to each individual benefit type and your chosen subscription rate.
What do I have to do to join?
Joining is easy. All you have to do is download and complete a Membership Enrolment Form and return it to WHA, together with a completed direct debit instruction. We will collect your payments from your bank account each month. What could be simpler?
