A staff perk that also benefits your business
When employees take time off due to ill health, it has a big impact on your business – from the drop in productivity to the cost of sick pay and hiring extra staff to provide cover. Group Health Insurance is designed to get people back to work as quickly as possible. And because staff see it as a valuable perk, you also have a highly effective incentive when it comes to recruitment and retention.
What is Group Health Insurance?
Also known as Group Private Medical Insurance, Group Health Insurance is an employee healthcare scheme that gives staff who are ill or injured access to quality medical care without the usual NHS queues.
Your policy can include a range of healthcare benefits – from full cancer cover, consultant fees and outpatient visits to dental and optical cover, alternative therapies and discounts for fitness clubs and equipment.
How Group Health Insurance works
You can set up a Group Health Insurance scheme in a number of different ways. With some schemes you’ll pay the premiums on behalf of your employees while other schemes will cost your business nothing.
