Group cover: best for your employees, best for your business

Group insurance attracts and protects your workforce

For employers

Our aim is to make group cover health insurance more affordable for you as an employer, while providing a valuable tool to attract and keep the best staff. 
UniMed’s group scheme insurance offers clear advantages:

  • Makes premiums for staff cheaper and more accessible, with a high perceived value. We are able to keep premiums super competitive because we are a ‘not for profit’ and don’t have to pay dividends to shareholders.
  • Positions you as a good employer and helps to build engagement within your company or group. Cover can be tailored to suit individuals.
  • Builds a caring culture, demonstrating that you care about safeguarding the future health of your staff, building morale and engagement.
  • Offers you an additional and popular remuneration package item, helping employees feel valued and secure.
  • Lowers absenteeism and reduces operational sick leave. Staff get back to work faster after major health interruptions.
