Chime Communications, the public relations, advertising and brand management group, has signed up to Healix 100 from healthcare and medical assistance specialist, Healix Group.†
Under the new agreement Chime has replaced its private medical insurance (PMI) with a Healix Healthcare Trust, which aims to deliver a better quality of service, combined with greater cost control and a bespoke range of employee benefits.
As the holding company for the UK’s leading public relations group, Bell Pottinger, as well as advertising and marketing, sports marketing and research services around the world, Chime Communications needed a healthcare solution that could meet the needs of its 1,100 staff.
Healthcare trusts are an alternative to traditional PMI schemes and operate in an almost identical manner. Except that, with a healthcare trust, a business can set the rules, providing a high level of control on costs as well as ensuring employees are appropriately covered.
Steve Hook, sales and marketing director of Healix, said: “With a wealth of expertise and a deep understanding of the medical and healthcare sector, Healix is in the perfect position to deliver a specialised service that caters to the needs of an organisation’s employees.
“Our nurse-led claims service was a key benefit for Chime Communications, combined with the opportunity to control the benefits they provide their staff.”
