Health insurer WPA has launched a new private medical insurance product for small and start-up companies.
WPA says the Smart-Start product costs 60 per less than similar schemes, getting staff back to work as soon as possible by avoiding NHS waiting lists.
A 25-year old in Reading would pay £100.73 a year for Smart-Start which covers in-patient and cancer care. It requires underwriting, along with £250 of shared responsibility.
The benefits package can be expanded with the addition of a corporate cash plan at £150 per person per annum, which WPA says is still less than a traditional plan.
