Outpatient healthcare, defined as medical treatment where an overnight stay in hospital is not required, can be a key benefit for many employees when included in a company’s health insurance offering.
Group Outpatient Health insurance coverage is usually available as an optional addition to a standard inpatient policy, which means that choosing to include outpatient protection in your company’s health insurance plan will normally mean that your premium will increase. However, offering this type of protection to staff through their employee benefits package can help to simplify day-to-day healthcare and ensure that your workers are not constantly worrying about their options in the event that they need to see a doctor.
While the costs associated with receiving outpatient medical treatment, such as going to a General Practitioner for a check-up or receiving a necessary vaccination prior to departing on a trip overseas, are often not overly high, you will normally receive more outpatient healthcare during the course of a given year than you would any other type of medical procedure. As such, providing this type of coverage to staff through their employee benefits package can help to simplify day-to-day healthcare and ensure that your workers are not constantly worrying about their options in the event that they need to see a doctor.
This is especially true if your group medical insurance policy is also providing coverage to your employee’s dependents. In which case an outpatient coverage benefit will ensure that your workers families are able to get comprehensive medical treatment as and when they need it.
Outpatient treatment, as defined above, is any medical treatment where an overnight stay in a hospital is not required. Consequently, an outpatient coverage benefit on a group medical insurance policy can provide coverage for:
The outpatient coverage benefits illustrated above are available on Group health insurance plans from many leading international insurance companies. However, it is important to note that not all of these benefits will be offered by every company and not every plan will include the full range of outpatient protection as illustrated above.
Consequently, ensuring that your company’s group medical insurance policy is able to provide the full range of coverage required by your employees is an important first step towards identifying the plan best suited to meet your organization’s unique requirements.
