PMI & Employee Health Benefits
Employee illness costs your company both time and money - unless youre properly covered.
Absenteeism costs British businesses £11.8 billion* annually, over a third of which being genuine long-term illness (over a week).
But with 1.5 million people waiting over four weeks for their first NHS consultation, and nearly a million waiting more than thirteen weeks for treatment or further consultation**, private medical insurance (PMI) represents a popular and attractive benefit for both employer and employee.
For the employer, private medical insurance is an effective way to help control absenteeism and manage your companys most valuable asset. Treatment and consultations can be arranged at the most optimum time.
Employees will have the reassurance of knowing they can quickly gain access to treatment with real patient choice at a time of their choosing.
