Why should you offer corporate health insurance to your employees?
Think about the times you have heard of someone dealing with a health emergency. These situations can be rip apart an employee’s financial savings and cause emotional stress – negatively impact their motivation and performance at work.
Health insurance will make your company’s benefits package more competitive in the talent market, and across the globe, is the most common (and well-appreciated) employee benefit. Better health coverage helps employers to attract new talents, retaining existing employees, and significantly improve employee satisfaction.
Is medical insurance compulsory for employees in Singapore?
Work Permit and S Pass holders are legally obligated to have medical insurance, along with medical treatment provisions, as employees with these passes are more exposed to injuries.
Employee pass holders are not required to have health insurance. However, offering them health insurance (alongside a competitive salary) is a proven way to retain top talents and win over tenured employees.
Aren’t Singaporean employees already covered by MediShield?
MediShield offers very basic coverage, and requires individuals to top-up for more adequate coverage. Therefore, all employees – residents and foreigners alike – appreciate health insurance coverage and are highly incentivised to join (or stay with) employers who offer this as a benefit.
How much health coverage do you need for your employees?
Based on our experience with over 200+ corporate clients, the average employer pays S$2,000 per employee (for a moderate to comprehensive package). However, this figure will vary based on your requirements and the modules you want to offer to your employees.
