In our experience, the answer to this question is yes, your tech business should seriously consider finding a way to offer your employees a great benefits package that includes company health insurance benefits.

Flexible health insurance plans for tech start-ups

Providing private healthcare cover for your employees helps to look after them should they fall ill or suffer an injury. It’s important that the cover your employees receive through your business helps protect them and their loved ones so they can get back to work and start living life to the full, as quickly as possible.

At Equipsme we’ve designed our business health insurance plans to be flexible and affordable for tech start-up companies and their employees. Our award-winning plans provide options for businesses of all sizes, taking into consideration the business budgets for your company just as much as the quality of cover your employees will need. You can mix and match cover levels for your team to help your budget stretch further and cover more of your work force, giving you the flexibility you need in the early days.


How much does a health insurance plan for tech start-ups cost?

Depending on the size of your company and the number of people you employ, the cost of providing your team with private health cover will vary. Equipsme helps keep things simple and affordable as all ages 16-69 cost the same and there are only 4 levels of plan benefits: £7, £18, £30 or £42 per person per month.

If you want to ensure that you’re offering your team the best health package available to them, look into our health insurance plans for businesses with employees. Each of the plans for tech start-up businesses include virtual GP, physio, 24/7 health support line and home health checks and start at only £7 per person per month. And for only £30 pppm you can give your team access to private diagnosis, tests and hospital treatment so they can find out quickly what’s wrong and get the treatment they need in a private hospital at a convenient time to them.
