Self Funding Corporate Healthcare Discussed in New Research Report Now Available at MarketPublishers.com02 Dec 2011 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – Today, over 1 million people are covered by healthcare trusts (HCT) – a well tried and cost effective alternative to standard corporate private medical insurance (PMI). Cost control is always important but not at the expense of maintaining quality and an HCT is an excellent option for any organisation with in excess of 100 employees.
HCTs differ from traditional private medical insurance in that an insurance company is not involved in the administration or operation of the scheme. Instead of paying premiums, regular contributions are made into a ring fenced healthcare trust fund which we manage on the company's behalf through appointed trustees. The rules and benefits of the scheme are designed to suit both the company's and employees needs.
New research report “Self Funding Healthcare for Companies” elaborated by Ian Youngman offers a comprehensive independent analysis of the healthcare trust market and alternatives.
- coverage of private health and reform of the National Health Service (NHS), sickness and welfare benefits;
- analysis of the growth of self-funding healthcare;
- overview of the healthcare trust market and providers;
- identification of advantages and disadvantages of self-funding;
- evaluation of the effect of new age and gender insurance legislation.
