As an employer, you can support and protect your people and identify yourself as an Employer of Choice, a company the best people will aspire to work for. Including Health Insurance in your salary package will have a positive impact on the levels of absenteeism within your organisation, it will improve your staff retention rate because you tangibly improve the quality of life for your employees and their family.

With group underwriting, premiums will not be directly impacted by increased claims made by your individual employees allowing PHA to offer low cost insurance that makes sense to your bottom line.
