Cripps Harries Hall reduces medical costs with healthcare trust

Law firm Cripps Harries Hall has reduced its medical claims costs since launching a healthcare trust a year ago. 

It has now renewed the scheme, which is provided by Healix Health Services.

The trust offers the firm greater control of its health insurance costs, securing a 20% reduction in its P11D rate while delivering the same level of cover as its previous private medical insurance (PMI) scheme.

The law firm’s employees also receive nurse case management through the scheme.

Glynis Read, HR operations manager at Cripps Harries Hall, said: “Before our partnership with Healix Health Services, we were facing increasing PMI premiums and needed a way to control future costs. Over the past year, the trust delivered a further 10% reduction on our P11D rate.

“We can guarantee all claims are individually case managed. This means we gain better control of our expenditure, as well as ensuring our partners and employees get the right treatment as quickly as possible.

“Plus, any claims under spend will be retained by us to offset future costs, rather than kept by the insurer as would have been the case with our previous PMI scheme.”
