What is group or company health insurance?
Company or group health insurance plans are a way for employers to offer private healthcare cover to their staff.
There are many benefits to providing a company health insurance plan, such as:
- Greater staff retention
- Staff could get treatment quicker than relying on the NHS, meaning they can get back to work sooner i.e. fewer staff sick days
- Promoting a happy work environment and having happy staff (many employees see private healthcare plans offered by their employer as a bonus)
What could it cover?
As with any health insurance policy, there's a range of ailments and conditions that might or might not be covered. Some of the policy benefits include:
- Mental health cover for conditions such as depression and stress
- Employees can bypass NHS waiting lists to get private treatment
- Treatment in a hospital of choice (i.e. close to work or home)
- More convenient appointments to limit disruption to the business
- Cancer care can be included (for an extra cost) to help staff with chemotherapy and treatment
- If you have a larger company, the policy could also include pre-existing medical conditions
Whether you have two members of staff, or thousands, you could get a quote to give your staff the peace of mind in knowing they'll be getting excellent private health care, should they fall ill.
