Add the benefit of health to your business

Equipsme is a new flexible Health and Wellbeing support plan which has been developed with the expertise of health insurer AXA PPP healthcare and three of the UK’s leading health support specialists: Medical Solutions, Thriva and Health Assured.

Who is it for?

We spoke to business leaders about what they wanted from a Health and Wellbeing plan. Based on their feedback we have built a simple, cost-effective solution to help improve employee health and wellbeing. We can cover businesses with at least two employees and they can build their Plan to suit their budget by mixing levels and they don't have to cover everyone in the business.

GP Access

24/7 GP Access

We offer GP Access across all four levels of Equipsme. If you're not feeling 100% then you can get a GP consultation by phone or by video call within a few hours of requesting one.

This service is provided by the UK's leading GP consultation service - Medical Solutions - which is easily accessed using our Equipsme App or through the members section of our website.

Levels 3, 2 and 1 include an 'Open Referral' which means if the GP thinks you may need a referral onto a specialist you simply contact AXA PPP healthcare who will confirm cover and organise the referral.

At all of the levels of Equipsme, within the GP Service, you can pay for a private prescription to be delivered to your home or work address.

Physio
Sessions

Physio Sessions

We offer Physiotherapy sessions across all levels of Equipsme. You access them through AXA PPP healthcare who will arrange and pay for the sessions and can be contacted whether or not you have a GP referral.

Physio cover starts with a telephone assessment by the in-house Physio team to help assess you and suggest any easy self help solutions.

If you then need to see a physiotherapist, the team can book this, with up to 3 annual Physio sessions with our GP Plus level, increasing to 5 sessions at Level 3, up to 8 sessions at Level 2 and no yearly limit at Level 1.
