Here’s why you should offer health insurance to your employees
Today, the cost of healthcare in Kenya has risen drastically, thanks to the evergrowing demand for medical services. Having health insurance is therefore very important both for individuals and even for your staff if you’re a business owner.
Being uninsured means you will receive less medical care and less timely care and the outcome is always worse healthcare. This brings a fiscal burden to you and their family. That said if you’re a business owner, a health insurance cover is one of the many benefits you can offer your employees.
A Health cover keeps your team healthy and happy and providing it signals that you care about the well-being of your employees.
Health covers can help the insured avoid being stuck with large medical bills and help them access the care they need to improve and manage their health. A health cover for staff should, therefore, be among the top priorities for any employer.
