Jeremy Chadwick on Group Optical Health Benefits and Vision Care – MPAF11

In the UK it’s compulsory for companies to offer workers that comply with particular circumstances an ‘appropriate eye test’ paid for by their employers.

Offering more than the standard optician test can be a great employee benefit.

And of course, there are schemes out there that can make this more affordable for businesses. It’s also an opportunity for advisers who have corporate clients.

My guest on Episode 11 of the Marketing Protection and Finance Podcast is Jeremy Chadwick.
