Welcome to your health cash plan

Claim cash towards your everyday healthcare bills such as dental, optical & therapy treatments, plus many more benefits!

Representing the vast majority of the uniformed staff of the UK fire and rescue service, the FBU is the voice of firefighters and the fire and rescue service across the UK. Looking after its members is paramount to the FBU and that’s why we have arranged a health and wellbeing benefit for FBU members.

The FBU endorsed health cash plan can help you manage the healthcare needs of you and your family, by enabling you to claim cash back on your everyday healthcare costs. Whether that’s dental check-ups and treatment, new glasses and contact lenses, or therapy treatments such as physiotherapy and chiropody, a health cash plan could help you.

The FBU is proud to represent all firefighters and hopes you and your family take full advantage of this benefit and find it to be of good value.
