What are the benefits of group medical cover?
More and more organisations are starting to realise the benefits of health insurance for their employees and the impact that it can have on wellbeing.
Many employees are stuck in long waiting lists for NHS treatment and they may have to wait weeks or months to be seen and this can have quite a negative impact on their morale and productivity. With private health cover, your staff can get quick access to appointments with private GPs, physiotherapists and other specialists to help in their recovery sooner rather than later.
With a healthier workforce, this often leads to greater efficiency and a stronger relationship between managers and their staff.
At Equipsme, employees can also include their partners and children in their plan, giving peace of mind and a better quality of life.
