Business health insurance makes business sense

Equipsme makes feeling better, better – with business health insurance plans that work for businesses of all shapes and sizes. So whether you’re a business of 200, 2, or self-employed, whether you’re in the boardroom or on the shop floor, you can get equipped with everyday healthcare and peace of mind.

Our plans start at just £7 per person per month if you have employees and £27 if you are a self-employed business and on your own. We’re making health cover a possibility for thousands of UK companies including the self-employed entrepreneur.

Taking care of your business

We think looking after yourself and your people IS looking after your business. That’s why all our plans include 24/7 GP access and physio appointments, so people can get reassurance, get better, and get help to get back to work, faster.

Private consultations, diagnosis and private hospital treatment cover is available, depending on the chosen plan level. If you have employees you can choose to support your staff’s mental health with stress support, and add dental & optical cover.

If you have employees you can start them off on a level to suit your budget and they have the flexibility to upgrade and include their partner and children – so you’re helping them look after their families too.

Frequently asked questions

Why should I get business health insurance?

Business health insurance is considered an important employee benefit by many organisations. Giving staff quicker access to private medical treatments promotes productivity, wellbeing, less sick days and absenteeism.

Many employees appreciate working for a company that cares about their health, something that increases their loyalty to the organisation, especially when Equipsme allows partners and children to be included. Employees can pay separately to add their partner and children.
