New product Business Protect comes to the SME market

Monday, November 11, 2019

Did you know 76% of UK employers plan to prioritise wellbeing as part of their employee benefits package; with both physical and emotional wellbeing playing a part in the strategy that’s on offer to workers? Health underpins this to make sure employees’ needs are being met and looked after.

The launch of our brand new product Business Protect means cover can be tailored to employees, like traditional business health insurance, but it takes this one step further and offers a completely flexible product with the ability to pick and mix your own plan.

Take a look at what this new product to the business health insurance market can offer and learn how it’s one of the first of its kind.

What is Business Protect?

This new product provides you the opportunity to create a plan that’s as individual as your business. It’s common for business health policies to have a core cover as standard, which might include services or options that you don’t ever use or need, often setting a price that might be out of your budget.

Business Protect however, has no mandatory core cover – it’s a policy built your way with options relevant to you.

Features of Business Protect

A product that can suit all budgets

With core cover no longer compulsory, businesses can now select only what they need; making it more affordable for smaller budgets. Stand-alone options can also be purchased; again bringing down costs and making the cover more relevant.

Different cover for different employees

Customers now have the ability to choose different cover options for different employees, depending on seniority, role or length of service.

Extra cover

Our Extra Cancer cover and Extra Care options are now embedded into the Treatment options, rather than being separate add-ons.

Increased excess range

Excess for our previous business policy was £0 - £500; it’s now increased to £750 at the top end.

As Health-on-Line is part of the AXA Group, this new offering to the business health insurance market is launched in conjunction with AXA PPP healthcare’s new product Business Health. Both similar in their ‘pick and mix’ style set up, just slightly different in their benefits.


All customers, regardless of options purchased, will be given unlimited access to Doctor at Hand for everyone covered. Every policy member will benefit from unlimited consultations at a time and place that’s convenient for them.

24/7 nurses helpline

Direct telephone access to our healthcare experts for your members and their family.

Fast-track to a specialist

If someone in your team has seen a GP and been referred to a specialist, it can really play on their mind. Depending on the options you’ve chosen, our Fast Track Appointments team will match them with a specialist when and where it suits them; so they can be seen quickly.

Up to 40% off Nuffield

We've partnered up with Nuffield Health so when you take out a health insurance policy with us, you’ll also be entitled to up to 40% off of monthly individual membership fees at Nuffield Health Fitness and Wellbeing centres.

Example cover

A new business could choose to purchase treatment with comprehensive cancer cover, full-outpatient, Therapies and Worldwide Travel for the business owners and directors, but additionally put in place a package for their wider workforce with Therapies and Employee Assistance Programmes.

Customer Reviews

  • “Excellent customer service. The Heath plan was catered to my needs and requirements. I'm very impressed with the low price. Had I known how affordable health insurance was before I'd have taken it out years ago.”
