Benefits of private healthcare cover for small businesses

Private healthcare cover can have a number of benefits for small businesses, including:

  • In a small business, one person being absent can have a big impact on the business. Private healthcare cover can reduce the amount of time needed to be away from work due to ill health through prompt access to diagnosis and eligible treatment.
  • Offering employee benefits such as private healthcare cover can help with employee retention and recruitment due to investment in the health and wellbeing of the team.
  • You and your team will also have greater choice and flexibility over where and when you’re treated so you don’t have to plan your life around your appointments.
  • Offering private healthcare cover to the team can help to increase productivity levels in the business by reducing the risk of presenteeism and absenteeism.
  • You and your team will receive eligible treatment in a private hospital. This means that you’ll have your own private room, in most instances with an en-suite bathroom, TV, Wi-Fi that’s usually free, tasty and nourishing food and free parking for you and your visitors.
  • With our small business private healthcare cover, you and your team will also have access to our 24/7 health information telephone helpline, Health at Hand.
