According to Equipsme’s own research, as more people have become more aware of health issues following the pandemic – and more concerned about the NHS’s ability to treat them – they are looking to employers to plug the health gap. And 57% of working Brits are now even prepared to sacrifice salary to secure it.
The fact is that benefits matter now more than ever – and health benefits are rising up wish lists for employees, and the employers looking to attract them, retain them, reduce absences, encourage engagement, and even improve productivity.
Many large businesses will be familiar with health insurance, usually in the form of Private Medical Insurance for senior staff, and cash plans or voucher schemes for other employees. At Equipsme we set out to democratise health insurance, and create a middle ground that’s both practical and affordable for the wider workforce.
Our company health insurance plans for small businesses start at just £7 per person per month, with the most popular comprehensive plan costing just £30 per person per month, including top quality private specialist diagnosis and treatment delivered by AXA Health.
We’ve made our pricing completely transparent, so you can see exactly how much a plan might cost you, and even get an online quote – without having to fill in lots of forms or getting chased with a hard-sales pitch.
You can pick and choose different levels of cover depending on the needs of your business, and your staff can choose to pay in themselves to upgrade their plan or add their partner and/or children – without any extra administration or cost to you.
It’s the same price for all ages 16-69, with no long medical questionnaires and a simple exclusion of pre-existing conditions in the three years before cover starts. We want to make sure your company health insurance is sustainable, and scalable. One of the reasons we’re able to keep costs low is because we don’t cover cancer treatment, which is incredibly expensive, and which we believe the NHS is still best placed to treat. It means people can still get fast diagnosis, but that more businesses can afford more cover for more people – and help protect it for the long term.
Best company health insurance for larger businesses
The best health insurance plans for large businesses should be able to cover the wider workforce and not just senior management. They should also be practical – helping people stay well and get better faster if they’re ill or injured.
That’s why we focus on practical health support, and our award-winning plans all include access to GP appointments, nurse helplines, preventative health checks and physiotherapy sessions.
We also have add-ons for dental & optical cover at £8 per person per month, and a stress support service for £1.50 pppm which means your staff can access a 24/7 helpline, and even get face-to-face counselling sessions if they need them.
