Business medical plans

Employee benefits are an important part of running a business. They can help to retain and attract talent, and make your employees feel happy and valued. Offering medical benefits to your team can boost morale, increase productivity and help to reduce workplace absences. 

From private medical insurance to health checks, there are lots of ways you can offer healthcare to your team.

Business employee medical insurance

We have four levels of health insurance cover for small businesses in our Select health insurance offering: Custom, Key, Enhanced and Complete. If you take out our private health insurance, your employees will receive mental health and full cancer cover. They’ll also have access to our 24/7 Anytime HealthLine, a confidential service where you can speak to qualified nurses over the phone. Other benefits of our private medical insurance include:

  • Cover for eligible out-patient consultations and treatments
  • Eligible in-patient and day patient treatment, including diagnostic tests and scans

With Bupa cancer cover there are no time limits. All eligible treatment costs and evidence-based breakthrough cancer drugs and treatments that your scheme covers are paid in full for as long as you have Bupa health cover. If your cover is provided by your employer there may be exceptions. If they’ve selected an overall annual maximum allowance, eligible treatment costs that your scheme covers will be paid up to that amount. You must use a hospital or health centre from the Bupa network and a consultant that we recognise and charges within Bupa rates (a fee-assured consultant). Please check your certificate or guide to see which specific list of advanced therapies your employer has selected as it may not cover all advanced therapies.

Business health assessments

A business health assessment is an opportunity for your employees to get an overview of their health. They will receive support and advice about what they can do to improve their health from qualified doctors and trained health advisers.

A business health assessment has lots of benefits. These include:

  • A set of in-depth tests and measures appropriate for the individual
  • A targeted physical examination with a doctor, along with time to talk through any health concerns
  • Time with a health advisor to discuss your lifestyle and how you can reduce future health risks
  • Access to an online Bupa account which holds your personalised report and results. You’ll also have access to four 12 week online coaching programmes
  • Follow-up lifestyle coaching sessions on the phone with our coaching team
  • Access to our Anytime HealthLine, which gives you 24/7 access to nurses and doctors
  • All of our health and wellbeing plans include a full year’s access to the Bupa Be.Me app.
  • Access to online mental wellbeing programmes provided by SilverCloud Health, helping you to take greater control over your mental health.

Occupational health services

An occupational health service helps to support your employee’s mental wellbeing.

Our employee assistance programme gives your team access to confidential counselling. Here they can discuss any worries or concerns they may have with a specialist or expert. It doesn’t have to be a health concern; the team offer guidance for personal issues too, such as parenting, money management and legal matters. This service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You may consider an occupational health solution for your business because:

  • It offers your team support for any issues that’s affecting their mental health
  • It can improve morale in the workplace
  • Dependants and partners living at the same address also have access to this service
