For any professionals working in a physical job where there is a certain amount of risk to be managed, private healthcare is a great back-up. Keeping people happy and healthy also makes great business sense – because losing people to illness or injury can have a huge impact on your workflow.
The Health and Safety Executive reports that 74,000 construction workers suffer from work-related ill health each year - and 61,000 have workplace injuries. Some of the most common complaints are musculoskeletal issues and mental health issues – which is why Equipsme plans offer things like a 24/7 GP service, physio appointments, and the option to include a stress support line.
Our partnership with AXA Health helps provide quick, quality treatment to help people recover as fast as possible, and get back to their lives and their jobs.
How much does company health insurance for construction businesses cost?
Unlike many providers of company health benefits, we don’t put a premium on your plan because of the type of work you do. We know that lots of construction businesses run on tight margins with seasonal peaks and troughs, and that you need scalability and sustainability.
At Equipsme we’ve made it our mission to create affordable and transparent health insurance plans for businesses of all sizes.
It’s the same price for each employee aged 16-69, no long medical questionnaires and a simple exclusion of pre-existing conditions in the three years before cover starts. You can choose to offer different levels of cover. Members can then choose to pay into their plan themselves in order to upgrade their cover or add family members.
Our company health insurance plans for construction businesses start at just £8 per person per month, with the most popular comprehensive plan costing just £33 per person per month.
Important Health Benefits for Construction Workers
The best health cover for self-employed construction workers or construction businesses should be comprehensive, flexible and practical. Healthcare should be easy to access, with services designed to be used day-to-day – not just saved up somewhere for a rainy day.
At Equipsme we provide construction businesses of all sizes with company health insurance plans that works for them, and their teams. All our plans provide practical healthcare support that can help people get better, quicker.
