What is corporate health insurance?

Corporate health insurance is a type of insurance plan which is designed to cover medical treatment for employees and support them when they need it most. If one of your employees falls ill and requires medical attention, they will benefit from quick access to private hospitals (as there is no NHS waiting time) and consultants who can restore them back to health, helping to reduce the number of sick days taken. From supporting mental health to cancer cover, our company medical insurance will give your employees the peace of mind they need.

Why buy corporate private medical insurance?

For larger businesses, Freedom Health Insurance offers flexible company health insurance to meet your employees’ healthcare needs and help you control costs. Here is what private corporate health insurance can do for your company:   

Cuts the cost of sick days

Every year, millions of working days are lost to sickness1, considerably impacting the bottom line of businesses. Whilst you can’t control when your employees get sick, private medical insurance can provide your employees with fast access to quality healthcare, helping them return to work sooner.

Improves presenteeism

Presenteeism (when employees come to work while sick) is often a hidden problem, especially within large companies. It can reduce productivity and leads to a poor organisational culture. With corporate health insurance in place, your staff are encouraged to seek medical help knowing their medical treatment bills will be covered, enabling them to return to full productivity more rapidly.

Helps you hire and retain staff

When recruiting talent, offering corporate health insurance as part of your benefits package can be the reason why a candidate chooses you over competing companies. At the same time, your current employees are less likely to look elsewhere for employment because offering company private medical insurance can make them feel more valued and looked after.

Increases job satisfaction

Corporate medical insurance is one of the most wanted employee perks2. When people know their employer is interested in their health and wellbeing by giving them access to quality private healthcare through a corporate health insurance scheme, they can experience a boost in motivation, productivity and be enticed to stay with your company for longer.

What Our Customers Say About Freedom Health Insurance

Corporate Health Insurance FAQs

Can my employees add their families to the cover?

Yes, your employees can add their partner and children to their corporate health insurance plan. Because we are committed to helping you manage costs, all additional children after the first one are insured for free. What’s more, children can be added to the policy up to the age of 29 as long as they live with their parent(s) who are already covered. Contact us today for more information.

What are my underwriting choices?

As a business looking for corporate health insurance, you generally have two options of medical underwriting available to you: full medical underwriting (FMU) and moratorium underwriting. In addition, subject to underwriting approval, you may also be able to transfer your policy from another provider to us without loss of underwriting. These choices give your company control over the cover and costs of your company private medical insurance scheme. To find out more about each type of underwriting, please visit our underwriting page or get in touch with our friendly team.

If I find a better premium elsewhere, can Freedom Health Insurance match the price?

If you are looking to invest in a new corporate health insurance scheme for your large business, but have received a lower corporate health insurance quote from another provider for the same health benefits and level of cover, we will do our best to match or even beat this price. Get in touch with our customer service team today.

How much does health insurance cost per employee?

How much health insurance costs depends on a number of factors, the most obvious being the size of the group you are insuring. However, we can offer certain group discounts, depending on the number of people insured on the corporate health insurance plan.

Such factors inckude:

  • The number of employees - Depending on the number of employees your company has, this can affect the health insurance cost per employee. Larger groups are often offered greater group discounts.
  • Age group of employees - An older workforce' health insurance would usually cost more compared to a younger workforce.
  • Risk level of the job - If a job has occupational hazards that can harm your staff, medical care can be higher compared to workers who work in relatively safer environments.

Can you provide different benefit packages within the same insurance policy?

Our company private medical insurance can be adapted to your unique business needs. If you are looking to provide a tiered corporate health insurance policy for your staff, please contact us to discuss your situation.

How does the corporate health insurance claim process work?

We want to make the company medical insurance claim process as straightforward and simple as possible, so your employees can return to work sooner. As a rule of thumb, a group member will need to see their GP first and get a referral letter, if further medical treatment is needed. Then they should get in touch with our claims team before seeing a specialist or carrying out any diagnostic tests. To make a claim, call us on 01202 283 580* or visit our claims page.

Is company health insurance worth it?

Offering corporate health insurance plans has so many benefits for both employers and staff.

For employees:

  • Improved job satisfaction - employees will feel as though they are a valued member of the company and that their wellbeing is important.

  • Access to high quality private medical facilities and treatment.

  • Convenient appointment times - employees can make medical appointments to fit around their schedules.

For employers:

  • Less sick days - employees can access the care they need without delays from NHS waiting times so businesses are less likely to suffer from long absences.  

  • Better employee retention - employees will feel more valued with a company medical insurance scheme in place and are therefore more likely to stay with the business for longer. 

  • Employers will also benefit from increased job satisfaction as their staff are more likely to be productive and motivated when they’re satisfied with their job. 

Are companies required to offer health insurance?

Whilst a business isn’t required to offer health insurance, it is certainly worth considering. Our corporate medical insurance has benefits for businesses, helping them run more effectively with less sick days and ensure the wellbeing of employees.
