All UK employees may opt-in to health insurance provided by Vitality Health, which can pay for private consultations and hospital treatment. thoughtbot pays for the insurance, but the individual employee is liable for paying tax on it (the value of the insurance is deducted from your tax-free personal allowance). Insurance covers the employee and optionally their families.
To claim on your health insurance, please see the Vitality Health website.
thoughtbot can also reimburse employees for the cost of an annual opticians’ appointment.
