What are the benefits of group medical cover?

More and more organisations are starting to realise the benefits of group health insurance for their employees and the impact that it can have on wellbeing and employee absenteeism.

If employees are waiting for treatment, they could be stuck on long waiting lists for NHS treatment and they may have to wait months to be seen which could have a negative impact on their morale and level of productivity. With private health cover, your staff can get quick access to appointments with private GPs, physiotherapists, and specialists to help with diagnosis and treatment and help them recover sooner rather than later.

At Equipsme, employees can choose to upgrade their cover and also include their partners and children in their plan, giving peace of mind and help keep their family fit and healthy.
