In the UK everyone is entitled to free treatment from the NHS, however, many companies opt to cover their employees privately as well. The main benefit of private medical insurance is that your employees can normally be treated more quickly, with more choice about when and where the treatment takes place.
Private Medical Insurance gives peace of mind when needed most, knowing that not only will medical bills be taken care of, but access will be available to the very latest treatments, facilities and leading specialists in all medical conditions, including cancer. The Post Code Lottery does not apply to Private Medical Insurance.
Although NHS waiting times have been slightly reduced in the past few years, with a private medical insurance policy waiting times for consultations and treatment are minimal. This can reduce stress on your employee and their family and allows for a much quicker return to normal life .
