Business Private Health Insurance

Business health insurance - the basics

Business health insurance is a type of health insurance that your company can take out to protect the health of your work force. Employees can use the policy to avoid lengthy wait times on the NHS, meaning they are able to return to work quicker.

It can be arranged according to the size of your business. Many insurers offer bespoke policies for SME's with a few employees to large corporations with potentially thousands of staff.

The company is responsible for paying the premiums, if an employee opts in, it is considered a "benefit in kind" or simply a company benefit.

What are the benefits?

  • Makes your company more attractive to candidates
  • Can increase employee productivity and workplace satisfaction.
  • Allows employees to jump NHS waiting times
  • Reduces the amount of time staff need to take off due to poor health.
  • A healthier, happier workplace
  • Tax relief for businesses
