Some colleges in Wales have been criticised for providing private medical insurance for executives at the taxpayers’ expense.
Three out of 18 colleges told BBC Wales after a Freedom of Information request that they pay insurance cover.
Guto Bebb MP called it a “slap in the face” for the public and unions have questioned whether it is a good use of public money.
Two colleges said the policies help ensure managers return to work quickly.
Grwp Llandrillo-Menai, Colwyn Bay, Ystrad Mynach College, near Caerphilly, and Coleg Ceredigion, Ceredigion, said they paid insurance cover.
