Healthy showing in national insurance awards

The Health Insurance Group has been announced as a finalist in five categories of the prestigious Health Insurance Awards 2015.

Iain McMillan, Managing Director of The Health Insurance Group, comments "reaching this stage is a major achievement! For each category we had to demonstrate through case studies our solutions-based advice and how we deliver real benefits to our clients. The competition is fierce and, exceptionally, we have been shortlisted by a panel of top industry judges as finalists in all the categories we entered."

The Health Insurance Group is an independent insurance broker (intermediary) and specialist health and wellbeing advice service provider for companies and individuals. Most of the case studies covered provision to businesses where the health schemes put in place help recruit, retain and increase the productivity of employees.

Iain McMillan explains "We work with employers to help keep their employees healthy, both physically and mentally, to reduce stress related problems and encourage wellbeing. This equates to a happier, more productive workforce, resulting in less absenteeism and reduced staff turnover, thus saving on recruitment and training costs. Health benefits are highly valued by employees, whether in contributory or non-contributory schemes, and we see a very high take-up in companies where the schemes operate."

The five categories in which The Health Insurance Group are finalists are:

  • Best use of Cash Plans by an Intermediary
  • Best Dental Benefits Intermediary
  • Best Individual International PMI (Private Medical Insurance) Intermediary
  • Best Group International PMI (Private Medical Insurance) Intermediary
  • Best Workplace Wellbeing Intermediary

The winners of the Health Insurance Awards will be announced in October at a gala event in London.
