Norland Managed Services, the facilities management and support services provider, has implemented a healthcare trust for its 2,000 employees in UK and Ireland.
Norland will benefit from savings over the cost of corporate private medical insurance (PMI) premiums and will keep any monies if claims are lower than anticipated. The healthcare trust is provided by Healix.
Rachael Henderson, HR director at Norland Managed Services, said: “Healix offers us the right level of claims management as well as delivering better management information and feedback to allow us to effectively control the costs we incur in providing this benefit to our employees.
“Healix provides nurses to take the initial claims calls from our staff, which means there is a deep medical understanding of each claim from the outset, enabling the Healix team to recommend the best possible approach to treatment.
“This tailor-made approach also means we have been able to design a scheme that exactly fits our requirements, enabling us to offer our staff a good range of medical and health and wellbeing benefits, which sustains our goal to be an employer of choice.”
Richard Saunders, sales director at Healix, added: “Current trading conditions put a lot of emphasis on cost control – but that has to be achieved without any compromise on the quality of employee healthcare.
“Our nurse-led approach gives clients like Norland the confidence that care comes first – but that we also understand commercial pressures.”
