WHAT IS PRIVATE MEDICAL INSURANCE?
Private Medical Insurance is designed to provide you with additional security and peace of mind when it comes to receiving healthcare. In the UK we are lucky enough to have the National Health Service that provides medical attention that is free at the point of delivery, however many people still opt for private treatment because of the increased benefits and the speed of treatment that it has to offer.
WHY SHOULD I PROVIDE PRIVATE MEDICAL INSURANCE TO MY EMPLOYEES?
Having key staff absent from work can have a huge impact on businesses. So, companies may consider buying private health cover to avoid lengthy absences and high business costs caused by staff having to wait for treatment on the NHS.
Your staff may also benefit from choosing when to have treatment and at which hospital. Usually there’s also the privacy of an en-suite room with TV along with other home comforts. It’s also a staff benefit that will show you’re a caring employer, so your staff will really feel valued.
HOW DOES PRIVATE MEDICAL INSURANCE WORK?
It covers the cost for treatment, tests, diagnostics and outpatient benefits you may require privately. It is usually designed to cover the cost for treatment of acute conditions that are curable and, in most cases, short-term. The benefit is designed to give you quick and prompt access to the treatment you require without the NHS waiting lists, and access to leading facilities and drugs that might not be available on the NHS.
