Business Health Insurance

Here in the UK, health insurance isn't merely a benefit but a strategic asset that elevates productivity and employee satisfaction. Customised for both employers and employees, it ensures quicker access to medical treatment and a plethora of enhanced healthcare services.

Why Business Health Insurance?

There are a myriad of benefits of business health insurance including:

A Strategic Move for Growth:

A tailored business health insurance policy signifies a company's investment in its greatest asset—its people. This strategic decision is more than a perk; it's a commitment to fostering a healthy, productive workforce.

Beyond the NHS:

The National Health Service (NHS) is a cornerstone of UK healthcare. However, it has its limits. Private healthcare cover complements the NHS by filling critical gaps, offering your team quick access and specialised care, thereby reducing wait times and accelerating recovery.

Fewer Sick Days:

With speedy access to private specialists, and in some cases a private hospital, employees no longer need to wait for NHS availability for diagnostic tests and more. Get your A players back to work quicker.

A Competitive Edge:

In a fierce job market, providing private healthcare cover can set your company apart. It's a powerful tool for attracting and retaining top talent, demonstrating a commitment to employee well-being.

Key Features of a Business Health Insurance Plan


Tailored Plans

Unlike standard private healthcare cover, business health insurance is customisable to meet your company's unique needs, ensuring you pay only for the access to healthcare you require. You can even set up different levels of cover based on staff seniority.


Comprehensive Coverage:

From outpatient cover to inpatient care, and even additional options like Dental & Optical, mental health cover and more, these plans cover a broad spectrum of healthcare needs, ensuring your team has access to the best available services.


Financial Control

Understand the implications of premiums, excess, levels of cover, and co-payments. These terms shape the cost and coverage of your plan, offering mechanisms to control expenses while maintaining premium healthcare services.

Implementation and Management


Setting Up

Selecting and rolling out the right company health insurance policy involves assessing a wide range of business needs, comparing quotes, and understanding different policy benefits available.


Ongoing Management

Effective communication, handling claims efficiently, and annual policy reviews are essential for smooth operation. Encourage a culture of employee health and wellness within your company to maximise the benefits of your health insurance plan.

Cost of a Business Health Insurance Plan

The cost of a business health insurance plan in the UK varies widely, and is influenced by several key factors such as the size of the company, the underwriting method, the demographics of the business and things like average age and the level of coverage selected, and any additional benefits or services included in the plan.

It's also important to consider the insurer's pricing structure and claims process, which may include discounts for larger groups or options for co-payments and voluntary excesses to help manage premiums. Ultimately, the investment in business health insurance should be viewed through the lens of its value in promoting employee health and well-being, potentially saving on long-term costs related to absenteeism and productivity loss.
