One of the UK’s leading Independent Insurance Broker is to cut the cost and offer a brand new Healthcare Plan to 95% of UK SMEs
For the first time in the UK, Sutton Winson (www.suttonwinson.com ), a Chartered Insurance Broker has launched a self-selected healthcare insurance plan (https://www.suttonwinson.com/what-we-do/employee-benefits/group-health-and-protection/private-health-insurance-for-uk-businesses/ ) at four pre-set premium rates (£7, £17, £29 and £37 per employee per month). There are no medical questions and the cover is the same for all ages. The policy can be up and running in minutes.
Equipsme (www.equipsme.com) plans, underwritten by AXA PPP healthcare, are aimed at businesses who have historically been unable to afford health insurance plans across their workforce. Each employee can choose to upgrade their level of cover should they wish and add family members on their mobile device.
Plans include physio sessions, online health checks, and private nurse helplines, along with many other benefits, and are simple to set up.
Matthew Reed, Managing Director of Equipsme, commented:
“We want all businesses to feel as if they can get healthcare in place for all of their existing employees without breaking the bank or stretching themselves too thin. We want to keep their workforce fighting fit by offering unlimited GP appointments, health checks and diagnostic tests from £17 per month. We feel all SMEs, no matter how big or small, should be able to insure every single one of their employees. Everyone should have access to healthcare.
“We’re aiming to make health insurance easier to understand for UK SMEs and are confident that our unique product offering is going to bring positive change to the industry.”
David Thomson, Managing Director of Sutton Winson said:
“For far too long UK businesses have seen their traditional Private Healthcare Insurance premium increase year on year and we want to give SMEs the chance to attract and retain a healthy and happy workforce.
“Everyone can now have access to affordable private healthcare.”
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
"“We have been members of BHBPA from its inception, and seen the organisation steadily grow and expand into the dynamic entity it is today, bringing positive benefits to all its members.""
