The employer-employee relationship is one of the mutual benefits. While employees work for the benefit of the organization, the organization is expected to benefit the employee financially and non-financially. Group insurance plans are part of the financial benefits that ensure the financial safety of employees and their families in case of contingencies. Though not a necessity, these indirect financial benefits give employers an edge in the talent acquisition and retention rate.
One important and sought-after group insurance benefit is group health insurance. Group health insurance offers multiple benefits to both employees and employers. Here how:
- Default Insurance Policy
The day an employee joins an organization, he/she will be covered under Group Health Insurance by default if the company has a Group Mediclaim Policy. All employees of the organization will get basic coverage simply by being a part of the organization.
- Pre-existing Diseases? No Worries
Employer Health Insurance provided by employers covers pre-existing diseases from the first day that an employee joins an organization. Pre-existing diseases such as diabetes or hypertension are all covered under Group Health Insurance provided by SecureNow. There is no waiting period, unlike in individual health insurance policies.
- No Need of a Medical Check-up
Usually, when you go to buy an individual health insurance policy, you have to go through a “pre-medical screening.” Medical tests in this pre-medical screening determine your current medical conditions and affect your premium rates. However, in a Group Medical Insurance Policy, you don’t have to go through a medical check-up or submit medical reports to get enrolled under this plan.
- Maternity Benefits
Some group & health insurance policies offer maternity benefits while others don’t. However, we at SecureNow, understand your needs and provide quotes from Mediclaim insurers that offer maternity benefits as well. You can get cover from day one of joining office, which means you will get maternity benefits on an immediate basis. Also, we have set separate limits for normal, cesarean or ectopic pregnancies.
Your new-born baby can also be covered under the policy without the standard 90 days of the waiting period.
- No Waiting Period
There is no such thing as a waiting period in Group Health Insurance. Illnesses like heart issues, diabetes, etc. are covered from day one. Unlike in an individual health insurance policy where you have to wait for 3-4 years for maternity benefits, Group Health Insurance provides you maternity benefit from the first day.
- Cashless Hospitalization
We at SecureNow provide you with insurers having a network of hospitals. That means you don’t have to go through the headache of submitting papers and various other documents. Just show the TPA or hospital your health insurance card and avail cashless facility in any of the hospitals within the insurer’s network and focus on your recovery.
- High Retention Rate
The quality of your workforce determines whether your organization will make great strides or not. The best way to increase your productivity is by improving your retention rates. Providing your employees with a Group Health Insurance which covers your employees and also their family members will help to get them emotionally more attached to your organization, which will eventually increase retention rates and also attract new talent.
- Motivated Employees
Flexible working hours and a good paycheque are not enough to boost your employees’ morale. A Group Mediclaim policy works as an excellent add-on benefit. As you would have noticed, medical expenses keep rising, but by insuring them under Group Health Insurance, you are taking the burden off your employees. This will motivate them to work harder.
- Low Premium Rates
The premium of a Employer Health Insurance policy depends upon:
- The number of employees
- Average age
- Type of occupation
- Type of coverage and benefits you opted for
- Your (employer’s) claim history
However, you can minimize premium rates with our help, and our team of experts at SecureNow will help you choose the most suitable plan based on your requirements and budget.
- Premium Payment Option
You can choose how you want to pay the premium based on your convenience:
- Tax Benefits
Under section 80D of Income Tax Act 1961, the premium paid for Group Health Insurance provides a tax benefit. But remember only the employer can claim tax benefits. An employee is not entitled to any tax deduction under Employer Health Insurance offered by an employer.
Employees can get tax benefits only when they have individual health insurance.
