Health insurance plans for start-ups

If you’ve recently founded an exciting new start-up, you’ll want to make sure you’re attracting the best talent to get your business off the ground.

One of the best ways to make your start-up business stands out from the crowd is with comprehensive benefits.

Healthcare is increasingly one of the most sought-after benefits, with 57% of working Brits even prepared to sacrifice salary to secure it.  But if resources and budgets are tight or uncertain, it can be really hard to know where to begin…

Our business health insurance plans for start-ups make healthcare benefits a realistic possibility for start-ups by making them simple, practical, and affordable.

How much does company health insurance for start-ups cost?

We understand that funding for start-ups comes in all different shapes and sizes, and that sustainability is key. Our health insurance plans for start-ups start at just £7 per person per month, with the most popular, comprehensive plan costing just £30 per person per month.

But it’s not just the price that makes them so suitable for growing businesses. They’re also flexible, and easy to administrate – so you don’t need an entire HR department to manage them.

Important health benefits for start-ups

The best health insurance plans for start-ups should be simple, and scalable. It’s why at Equipsme we’ve made sure there’s not any long forms, endless medical questionnaires,  complicated clauses or hoops to jump through.

It’s the same price for all ages, with a blanket exclusion of pre-existing conditions in the three years before cover starts. It means it’s easy to work out how much it’s going to cost your business, up front, without a hard sales pitch. Employees can then choose to pay in themselves to upgrade their cover or add their partner and/or children.

We also focus on practical health support to help people stay well and stay working. If your business is a small one, then every person out of action can have a huge knock-on impact. It’s why our award-winning healthcare plans all include access to GP appointments, nurse helplines and physio support, to help people get better faster.

Do start-ups offer health insurance plans to their employees?

There’s a million and one things on your plate when starting a new business, but we believe health benefits really should be one of them – and it’s worth taking into consideration as part of your start-up costs and funding requirements.

Evidence shows health benefits reduce absences, improve productivity, and enhance employee engagement. If you’re starting something special, we can help you make sure you’re starting it right.
