Healthcare trust spend with private hospitals doubles in a year
Leading corporate healthcare trust provider Healix has increased its spending with private hospitals and other private medical service providers in the UK to more than double in the last year. As an increasing number of employers hit by the recession choose to cut costs on their corporate healthcare schemes by self-insuring through Healix healthcare trusts, the company has established mutually beneficial relationships with a growing number of private hospitals. It is now mounting an awareness campaign to extend its network, providing valuable commercial opportunities for these organisations.
The aim of Healix’s new awareness campaign in the private medical sector is to improve understanding of the opportunities its healthcare trust proposition provides to private hospitals and other private medical service providers. Healthcare trusts allow employers to save money on the cost of traditional private medical insurance plans by self-funding their corporate healthcare schemes through an umbrella trust.
