For many years, progressive companies have paid for private medical insurance cover for key employees as a perk and of course to minimise the losses in productivity which would occur without access to convenient, high quality private healthcare treatment.
However, there is a growing concern in many companies regarding the much higher than inflation premium increases each year.
Eacotts have selected Healthtrust, independent specialist consultants in private healthcare with the benefit of over 20 years' experience, to offer advice to our company clients.
Healthtrust can advise your company on the wide variety of benefit options and premiums available from the well known insurance companies and also the well established but not so well known private healthcare benefit providers. There is a surprisingly wide variation in the available benefits and premium savings of up to 20% can be achieved by Healthtrust.
As well as advising on private medical insurance cover, Healthtrust can also provide specialist opinion on whether your company would be better off by paying for private treatment direct using professional negotiators to keep treatment costs to the minimum. This option will appeal to companies with typically less than 1 in 6 of employees covered making a claim.
Healthtrust fees are already included in the standard premiums your company is paying so it will not cost your company a penny more to take advantage of their specialist advice on all private healthcare issues.
