There are three main funding models to consider when setting up your corporate health insurance plan:
Company funded health plans
Your company pays the full contribution of its employees' health cover. Find out more.
Partially funded health plans
A contribution to health insurance premiums is paid by both the employer and the employee. For example, you may choose to fund the hospital premium with the remainder funded by your employees, resulting in lower contributions for them. Find out more.
Voluntary health plans
Your employees pay the total cost of their health cover premiums. Find out more.
Choosing the right plan for your company
Increasing health care costs are putting greater pressure on the public health system, which in turn leads to people waiting longer for treatment. A lack of speedy access to health treatments may adversely affect employee productivity, morale and may increase absenteeism. That's where offering the right health plan to employees may help.
What options are available?
If you're considering offering your employees a corporate health insurance plan, as a company owner or decision maker, you'll need to decide how you want to support it. Again, there are three models:
Company funded health plans
With a fully-funded health insurance plan, your company pays a health insurance premium to the insurer on behalf of your employees.
A couple of things to consider:
- The premium contributions are based on the number of employees enrolled in the plan.
- You can nominate the rebate tier which can help reduce the contribution amount you pay.
Partially funded health plans
Contributions to the health insurance premium is a shared cost between you and your employees.
- We generally bill you for the premium contribution owed by the company e.g. the hospital component or a percentage of costs depending on your agreement.
- We will bill your employees the remaining premium contribution as well as any excess or co-payments if applicable.
Voluntary Health Plans
On this plan type, your employees must pay the total cost of their health cover.
We are pleased to offer our customers aged between 18 and 25 years a discount of up to 10% on their health insurance premiums when they take out Bupa domestic hospital cover, including on our corporate range. The discount is calculated at 2% for each year they’re aged under 30, when they first purchase hospital cover. Once they're received an Age-based discount, they will retain that discount rate until they turn 41, as long as they hold continuous hospital cover. These discounts will then be gradually phased out when they turn 41.
