Health insurance is intended to cover medical expenses of the insured, including but not limited to preventative health assessments, inpatient and outpatient treatment, dental treatment and medical rehabilitation. It can also cover sports and wellness costs or even provide an amount of money that the employee is free to spend at his or her own discretion. The insurance policy may include a provision for cost sharing between employee and the insurance company (this usually reduces the price and increases employee value perception). Health insurance is a highly valued part of the employee benefit programme in any company or organisation.
Personal Accident insurance
Personal Accident Insurance, also known as Group Accident Insurance, provides financial support to your employee or to his/her family in case one is injured, becomes disabled or dies as a result of an accident. The indemnity payment depends on the severity of the injury and is calculated as a percentage of the pre-agreed insurance limit. In most cases, this insurance provides 24/7 worldwide coverage. Upon request, it can be limited to working hours and job-related injuries.
Life insurance provides a protection for the dependents or other beneficiaries of your employee in case he or she dies during the policy period (which is usually long-term - 10 years as a minimum). A Life insurance policy may also serve as a savings account, where the paid insurance premiums (less insurance administration fees and charges but topped up with the investment interest) are accumulated. In such case the insured shall be entitled to withdraw all or part of this amount during the policy period and, subject to survival, to be paid the full accumulated cash value at policy expiry. Under most circumstances, Life insurance premiums are not subject to any taxes or charges.
Critical illness insurance
Critical Illness Insurance will help if your employee gets critically ill during the term of insurance. It pays out a lump sum if, during an insurance policy period, a person is diagnosed with one of the covered critical diseases or health conditions, like a heart attack, stroke or cancer, for the first time in his or her life. The insurance indemnity payment can be used to cover health-related costs and lead to faster recovery. In case a person does not survive, it will be paid to his or her dependants or other beneficiaries.
