Without a doubt, the repercussions of the Covid-19 pandemic will be felt for years to come.
None more so than within our National Health Service. The NHS Waiting list backlog is now up to six million people (roughly 1 in 9!) and according to latest reports, will continue to rise for at least two more years.
The solution? Ensure that all of your employees are covered with at least some level of health insurance cover such as a Private Medical Insurance policy.
Your employees are your greatest asset, and it’s vital they’re looked after and protected.
Unfortunately for many of us, we will face a serious health condition at some point during the course of our lives that has wider ramifications. Not just for the individual themselves, but for their families too.
As employers, you can help alleviate those concerns and reassure your employees by providing them with a range of insurance products and a guarantee of fast, suitable diagnosis and treatment.
Private Medical Insurance benefits…
- Enables your employees to obtain faster treatment, reducing sickness time and reducing the impact on your business. Ensuring employees receive treatment as soon as they need it.
- Specialist drugs & treatment – some specialist treatments and medicines are not available via the NHS, either because they are too expensive or not NICE approved. Private medical insurance can offer policy holders a wider choice in terms of treatment.
- Quick access to a GP service – Many providers offer access to GP appointments using Digital/Virtual GP applications, allowing you to get medical help quickly and be referred to private treatment. Some also provide direct access to physiotherapists or mental health professionals without the requirement for a GP referral, allowing employees to receive treatment and support sooner.
- Lower costs – it is a common assumption that a private medical insurance policy can be a costly affair. In fact, there are many different products and levels of cover to choose from and we can help find the right option for your employees based on their needs and your budget.
