Simply Business partners with Equipsme to launch health insurance for SMEs

Simply Business , a digital commercial broker in the UK, has partnered with Equipsme , a provider of business health insurance, to launch its first health insurance proposition.

Plans are available from self employed business owners through to larger SMEs, and Simply Business arranges insurance for 650,000 landlords and businesses across the UK.

All plans include video and phone GP consultations including during evenings and weekends, as well as professional physiotherapy advice which can easily be completed at home. Customers can access professional counsellors with support for stress and anxiety.

The health plans will be free to businesses for the first two months, giving businesses a chance to try the plans without it affecting their cashflow.

Equipsme plans start at £7 per person per month, and employees are able to upgrade their own levels of cover. Policies cost the same for everyone aged 16-69 and there are no lengthy or intrusive medical questionnaires to answer, meaning businesses can get a quote in seconds and then get back to business.

“Small businesses are about so much more than premises and operations – they’re about people. People with families, livelihoods and big dreams to protect. So now more than ever it’s important to take care of the people who power small businesses. At Simply Business we’re passionate about supporting small business owners and it feels like the right time to explore ways to extend this support to their healthcare. We pride ourselves on offering simplicity, choice and value to an audience who are adjusting to a new way of working and living. We’re delighted to partner with Equipsme, who’ve helped us create a product experience which meets the needs of our customers.” – Alan Thomas, CEO at Simply Business.

“We’re delighted to be the chosen healthcare partner for Simply Business. It’s our goal to make healthcare cover work not just for big corporates and senior executives but small companies and every member of the team.” – Equipsme Founder, Matthew Reed.
