NU widens Solutions

Norwich Union Healthcare is making its Solutions suite of private medical insurance products available to smaller companies with less than 10 employees.

The package had previously been restricted to firms with between 10 and 249 employees but it is being broadened to encompass companies with just two to nine workers.

The Solutions suite enables corporate customers to pick and choose from a range of core benefits and more niche add- ons. The core benefits offered include covering private hospital charges, including specialist and diagnostic fees and outpatient fees such as the cost of physiotherapy or psychiatric treatment. Additional benefits that can be bolted on include cashback for hospital stays, hospice costs, infertility treatment and overseas cover.

The launch will be suppor-ted by a campaign aimed at intermediaries and corporate customers backed with new product literature.
