Simplyhealth acquires Aster Group as new corporate cash plan client

Simplyhealth has acquired Aster Group, a housing association based across the South, as a new corporate client. All of Aster Group’s 1,440 employees will benefit from a company-funded health cash plan provided by Simplyhealth.

Simplyhealth supports 3.7 million individuals, businesses, employees, and pets through their health plans, helping customers take control of their health. This includes access to health products, services, and support when they need it such as 24/7 GP access and virtual physiotherapy appointments.

With the current climate, Simplyhealth have launched their Coronavirus Hub on their website, accessible for everyone. The hub contains helpful information, blogs and articles about staying healthy for both mental and physical health.

Simplyhealth provides over 1,900 companies with employee benefit schemes, equating to over 3,500 individual corporate health and dental clients.

We are delighted to have acquired Aster Group, as one of our corporate health cash plan clients. Our health plans will enable Aster employees to access the healthcare services that they need, when they need it.

It is important, more so now than ever, to continue to support employees with their physical and mental health.
Pam Whelan, Sales Director at Simplyhealth

Aster Group provides safety and security through reliable customer services and supplies a wide range of housing options in response to the housing crisis.

At Aster we’ve provided a health cash plan for our employees for many years. As part of a review of our wider benefits offering for all our employees, and with good take up of this benefit across the business, we wanted to continue to provide this to help support a healthier lifestyle.

Simplyhealth was able to offer us a competitive package and also offer us some enhanced and new benefits including virtual physiotherapy, which we believe based on claims data, our employees will value, particularly at this time.
Holly Coe, Head of Reward and People Operations at Aster
