MGA offers free healthcare support to SMEs

Managing general agent, Equipsme is offering businesses with 2 to 20 employees free access to its healthcare plans and remote GP appointments in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Under the offer small businesses can provide their staff with 24/7 remote GP appointments, access to a nurse helpline, stress support and physiotherapy advice -- with employees requesting appointments via an app on their smart phone. Employees can also choose to pay individually to add their families to the plan.

Mathew Reed, Equipsme managing director commented: “We’re an SME. There are tough times ahead for all of us. But we think it’s up to businesses to now step up with what they’ve got and do what they can. This is what we can do, and we’re doing it from right now.

“We’re offering our company healthcare plans, free until 1st August, after the predicted peak period of the virus. There’s no obligation to stay on the plan, and businesses can cancel at the end of July without paying us a penny.

“Over the coming weeks and months people will need to adapt to working remotely, or at least very differently within communities. How we access medical care will need to be different, too. Free and remote GP access could help people keep going - and that’s ultimately going to help businesses keep going.

Equipsme was founded in 2018 and its partners include Axa PPP healthcare, Medical Solutions, Health Assured and Thriva.
