Employee Private Medical Insurance (PMI) Plans
The NHS offers a fantastic service, but it cannot always meet the needs of the increasing UK population, and more and more people are turning to some form of private medical insurance (PMI). In fact, around 5.1 million people in the UK have PMI and the companies offering it pay out £7.4m every day, according to the Association of British Insurers.
PMI provides peace of mind that specialist care, procedures and surgery are readily available, whenever an employee needs medical attention. Once perceived as a perk, it is often now considered as an essential element in an employee’s package, helping to facilitate the recruitment and retention of staff. Plus, should an employee fall ill, the prompt and specialist care that a PMI plan provides can help them quickly get back on their feet and back into work.
At Russell Scanlan, we work with all the UK’s leading private health insurance providers, and if you’ve never had corporate PMI before or are looking to review your existing cover, we can offer a free and no obligation review and audit of your business needs to ensure the right level of support for you and your business.
Of course, the old adage prevention is better than cure is particularly true when it comes to reducing employee absenteeism due to illness. We work with Vitality, which offers a unique mix of great medical cover and wellness rewards designed to create a healthier, happier, more productive workforce. It offers fast access to private GP’s, consultants, hospitals, high-quality treatment and a Full Cover Promise.
The Vitality Discounts and Rewards Programme empowers your business to inspire positive behavioural change and build a healthier, more engaged and productive workforce, no matter what your business size. They can provide access to core and optional wellness services which include engagement campaigns, onsite services and Vitality Coaches.
