A group payroll deduct private healthcare scheme is an alternative to a company-funded private healthcare scheme. It allows all employees access to private healthcare cover at no additional cost to the company. For example, where a company healthcare plan is restricted to a certain percentage of employees or when there is no company-funded plan in place. Employees that have signed up to group payroll deduct private healthcare plan, through their employer, will pay for their own cover through salary deduction.
One of the key benefits of private healthcare cover is the convenience. Upon referral from their GP, employees can choose who they want to see, where and when from a list of approved specialists and hospitals. This flexibility can help minimise the time employees spend out of the office. Employees can even get an online GP appointment by using AXA Doctor at Hand, powered by Doctor Care Anywhere.
Group payroll deduct plans are run in a similar way to our corporate healthcare plans whereby the employer sets up and manages the scheme. Employees pay for their healthcare plan out of their own salary via the employer’s payroll system. The employer also has the option to contribute towards employees’ premiums.
