Why should I have a health insurance group scheme?

Most companies already have a health insurance group scheme in place. Survey after survey shows that employees see health insurance as one of the most valuable benefits offered by an employer. In an increasingly competitive employment market non cash benefits like Health Insurance are excellent recruitment and retention tools. Apart from this a healthy and unstressed workforce has a positive impact on productivity and morale and reduces absenteeism and staff turnover.

Can my employees add their dependants to their policies?

Yes, that’s no problem. Who pays for employees dependants is at the discretion of your company. If you/your company choose to pay for your employees dependants your employees simply give their dependants’ details to you or your scheme administrator who add dependants to your scheme on-line.

If you/your company is paying for the employee only, your employees simply call Aviva directly and we can make the additions to their plan. In this case we apply ‘split billing’ to your membership, so the company would pay its contribution and the employee would pay the balance directly to Aviva.

If a company pays for their employees’ health insurance are the employees liable for Benefit In Kind?

Unfortunately for employees BIK is relevant when an employer is paying their employees health insurance (or a percentage of it). The employee is liable for tax on the portion that the employer pays. However the BIK liability is usually a fraction of the cost of a health insurance plan.

Is it possible to have a higher level of cover than the company is paying for?

Yes, that’s no problem either! In this case your employees contact Aviva directly to change their cover. By adding split billing to your membership, the company pays its contribution and the employee pays the balance for the upgrade directly to Aviva.
