The overwhelming demand for free medical treatment under the NHS means that many patients experience problems and long delays gaining access to specialist diagnostics and treatment. This can cause big problems for employers, with staff taking extended sick leave and/or needing to take time off work during a key trading period or important project.
You can combat this by providing your employees with Company Medical Insurance. With a company medical policy, employees will have access to prompt and effective medical care as a private patient if their GP is unable to diagnose or treat them.
Company Medical Insurance has been proven to reduce sickness absence, as non-urgent treatments can be scheduled to suit an employee’s prior commitments. Private care may be able to facilitate more advanced diagnostic techniques and treatment methods – which improve clinical outcomes.
Many Company Medical schemes also offer extra value benefits, such as:
Your premium cost will depend on a number of factors such as level of cover chosen, size and profile of the membership population and scheme history.
Company Medical Insurance is a P11d benefit however the tax incurred by the members is usually a fraction of the cost of buying comparable cover on a personal basis.
Aston Lark Employee Benefits can also help with supplementary health related insurances, such as Group Dental Insurance and Company Cash Plans.
