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.

What is included in business health insurance?

Depending on the level of cover you choose for your business, you will be able to access a range of health benefits and services, including:

  • 24/7 GP Access – get a GP consultation by phone or video
  • Physio sessions – from 5 per year up to no yearly limit
  • Health checks – including blood tests, cholesterol, Vitamin D and diabetes
  • Health support – private nurse helpline
  • Diagnosis cover – consultations, diagnostic tests, MRI and CT scans
  • Hospital treatment – cover for specialists, surgeons, hospital room, dressings and drugs
  • Dental and optical – check-ups and treatment
