Treatments for conditions related to long-Covid or women’s health issues have been added to HealixHealth Service to its healthcare trust plans.
Healix’s Covid benefit aims to cater for the specific needs of employees with long-term symptoms. The new service will cover employees for non-urgent eligible treatment for Covid-19, including cover for private tests, specialist consultations and outpatient treatments. Employees will also be covered for mental health treatments and physiotherapy, including respiratory therapy.
Healix has also expanded its offering by developing a new focused service for women’s health aimed at assisting women in accessing advice about their health throughout their working lives.
The service includes support during menopause, advice and guidance on all aspects of female health, such as contraceptive and fertility advice, and treatment for female health conditions including endometriosis.
Healix has already seen an uptake in the benefits amongst its clients with 76 per cent of its clients adding or considering adding the long-Covid benefit to their healthcare trust plans, while 73 per cent of clients have already added the women’s health services to their trusts.
Healix general manager Ian Talbot says: “The pandemic has put a greater focus on health and wellbeing, so it’s vital that we continue to develop and innovate our offering in order to better support our clients and their employees. Through the addition of our new long-Covid benefit and women’s health services, we’re aiming to provide an even more comprehensive proposition to help those individuals dealing with issues that are often overlooked by private healthcare schemes.
“Although we’re only just learning the true impact of long-Covid on people’s health, it’s clear that this condition can have devastating consequences on lives of those who contract it, so providing access to treatment and private tests is crucial in helping these individuals onto the road of recovery.
“At the same time, we recognise that women are at the heart of any workforce so providing cover focused on their needs is a vital step for the healthcare insurance industry. We’re committed to working with our clients to make sure their healthcare trust plans are tailored to support the diverse needs of their entire workforce.”
