A popular choice of benefit to provide to employees is Private Medical Insurance (PMI). PMI will cover the cost of private medical treatment for employees, meaning the claimant can receive treatment more quickly, at a convenient time and possibly in greater comfort. The level of benefit provided will vary but most will pay for specialist consultations, inpatient and outpatient treatments and diagnostic tests. Some employers, particularly large companies, choose to set up their own private health care trust rather than use a PMI provider.
