We were delighted to be featured in The National, discussing the new service offering created by Equipsme, specifically designed for SME clients:
A NEW firm has been launched to offer SMEs health insurance plans.
Equipsme is providing SME businesses with affordable and hassle-free health insurance plans, starting from £7 per employee per month.
Brokers, GS Group, with branches across Scotland, are one of the exclusive sellers of the policies.
Equipsme, which is led by the former head of global SME initiatives at AXA, Matthew Reed, is set to revolutionise the health insurance industry for SME businesses and make procuring cover for all employees easy, simple and cost effective.
The company aims to help those 95% of SMEs that do not currently have health insurance in place for their employees. With four levels of cover at four pre-set price points (£7, £17, £29 and £37 per employee per month) all businesses can choose the cover level they would like for their employees. Even the most basic policy gives their staff access to 24/7 GP consultations and remote appointments; relieving the pressure on the overstretched NHS.
Plans include physio sessions, diagnostic checks, hospital treatment, online health checks, and private nurse helplines, along with many other benefits depending on which level you buy.
The policies can be set up via GS Group, brokers located in Perth, Glasgow, Dundee, Aberdeen and Falkirk.
Matthew Reed, managing director of Equipsme, said: “We want all businesses to feel as if they can get healthcare in place for all of their existing employees without breaking the bank or stretching themselves too thin. We want to keep their workforce fighting fit by offering unlimited GP appointments, Physio sessions, health checks and diagnostic tests from £17 per month. We feel all SMEs, no matter how big or small, should be able to insure every single one of their employees. Everyone should have access to healthcare.”
“We’re aiming to make health insurance easier to understand for UK SMEs and are confident that our unique product offering is going to bring positive change to the industry.”
George Stubbs, Group Chairman of GS Group said: “Equipsme has given our small business clientele the opportunity to protect their employees and safeguard their business from long term sickness and short term tenure. We at GS Group are delighted to be part of the journey with Equipsme.”
