One way an employer may aim to attract and attain the best people is by offering their staff the benefit of health insurance. Like individual health insurance, corporate health insurance aims to pay for the cost or a portion of the cost it would take to be treated privately.

The main difference is that the employer takes it out to cover those they employ.

When an employee is faced with an illness, they can pay a small sum to be treated privately, and the rest is covered by the policy purchased by their employer.

Your business will receive one policy covering whoever you choose to offer the cover to, provided no one is left out for disciplinary reasons. By spreading the cost across a larger group, the cost of these premiums is usually cheaper than it would be to ensure everyone individually.

Do you need private medical insurance?

Things that will affect corporate health insurance costs

Prices for group health insurance policies tend to start around £250 per employee per annum. In some cases, though costs have been known to reach around £1000. This is because a number of factors change the price you will pay as an employer.

Generally, when taking out a policy it is seen that the higher number of people who will be covered, the lower the price per employee it will be. For smaller businesses of fewer than 250 employees, it is generally regarded to cost more, however there are specialist policies available.

It is cheaper to insure younger employees. Because this is a group policy, it is the average age which will be taken into consideration.

You are able to choose from different levels of cover. The more comprehensive the cover the more expensive it will be. This will increase with additions such as dental care.

Getting treatment in certain locations can be more expensive, for example central London. This is something which will affect the price of your policy.

Employees usually pay an excess for any treatments they receive. The lower the excess they pay, the higher the premium you will pay as the employer.

How many employees do you need?

You usually need more than two employees to take out group medical insurance, but you will most likely need small business specialist insurance for business smaller than 250 people.

If you are a limited company director you can take out business health insurance for yourself, however it is a taxable benefit-in-kind.

Is small business insurance cheaper than individual insurance?

Even smaller businesses will probably find it cheaper to have corporate health insurance than they will to have individual policies.

Contractor insurance is available for employees who work freelance, but these are specialist policies and are worth asking an insurance broker about. This is a case where it might be cheaper to have individual health insurance.
