How many employees do we need for medical history disregarded company health insurance?

We are considering setting up a business health insurance scheme for our employees and want to know they are covered for any treatment they may require. To ensure our employees can obtain cover for existing medical conditions I wanted to know how large the scheme needs to be before you can apply for medical history disregarded cover?

It is usually possible to set -up a group / business health insurance scheme on a medical history disregarded (MHD) basis with 20 or more employees, although this will vary from insurer to insurer.

It is worth noting that the premiums charged by the insurers would be around 20-25% more for a for an MHD scheme relative to a scheme underwritten on a moratorium basis. This is because an MHD scheme carries more risk and a higher claims ratio given that pre-existing conditions would be covered.

Ceiron King did an amazing job setting up my insurance. He was meticulous to all details and made sure everything was individually tailor made to suit my circumstances. When I had queries he was able to take on board any issues and find solutions quickly. Pleasant, easy to talk to, engaging, personable chap who effortlessly made me feel that I'd found the right firm. Highly recommended.
