What is Group Health Insurance?

Group health insurance is a type of insurance coverage designed to provide healthcare benefits to a specific group of individuals, such as employees of a company or members of an organization. This type of insurance policy allows employers or organizations to offer affordable and comprehensive healthcare coverage to their employees or members, as the risk is spread across a larger group, resulting in lower premium costs.

For example, a small business owner with a team of 20 employees may opt for a group health insurance plan to provide healthcare coverage for their staff. By doing so, the employees gain access to medical benefits like hospitalization, doctor consultations, and prescription medications at reduced costs. The employer benefits by offering a valuable perk that can help attract and retain talent while improving the overall well-being and productivity of their workforce.

Why Group Health Insurance?

Group health insurance offers numerous advantages for both employees and employers. It provides equal access to quality healthcare and helps protect against rising medical expenses.

For Employers:

  • Attract and Retain Top Talent:
    Offering employee health insurance as a benefit demonstrates your organization’s commitment to employee well-being. This can help attract top talent and increase employee retention.
  • Value for Money and Tax Benefits:
    Group health insurance policies often come with lower premiums and tax incentives for businesses, making it a cost-effective investment.
  • Boost Focus and Job Satisfaction:
    Providing a comprehensive benefits package, including health insurance, can improve employee job satisfaction, morale, and productivity.

For Employees:

  • Smooth and Easy Claims Process:
    Group health insurance policies often feature streamlined claims processes, making it easier for employees to get reimbursed for medical expenses.
  • Family Coverage at No Additional Cost:
    Many group health insurance plans allow employees to add family members at no extra cost, fostering goodwill and increasing employee satisfaction.
  • Preventive Healthcare:
    Group health insurance policies often include wellness initiatives, such as regular health check-ups, education on health-related topics, doctor consultations, and exclusive discounts on medicines, gym memberships, and more.

Group health insurance not only helps protect employees and their families from unexpected medical emergencies but also demonstrates a company’s commitment to their workforce’s well-being. This results in a positive work culture, increased employee satisfaction, and higher productivity levels.

Investing in group health insurance is a win-win for everyone, as it enhances the organization’s reputation while making a meaningful impact on employees’ lives. By prioritizing employee health and well-being, employers create a supportive and empathetic workplace culture that attracts and retains top talent while enjoying corporate tax incentives. Employees, in turn, benefit from a seamless claims process, free family coverage, and access to holistic well-being resources.


Who should buy Group Health Insurance?

There’s no “one size fits all” when it comes to group health insurance. Companies of all sizes can benefit from these policies, especially when providers offer solutions tailored to each team’s unique needs. A minimum group size of 2 with Healthysure allows even the smallest of teams to access comprehensive coverage.

Early Stage Startups:

Group health insurance is perfect for early-stage startups, even for teams as small as two members. By offering group health insurance with a minimum group size of just two, startups can attract top talent from the very beginning. This demonstrates that the company prioritizes employee well-being and can help build a strong foundation for the startup’s future growth.


Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs):

For SMEs experiencing growth, managing insurance administration can become time-consuming. Group health insurance allows businesses to streamline their operations and focus on more critical projects while ensuring their employees’ health is taken care of.


Large Organizations:

It’s essential for large organizations to benchmark their current insurance policy against industry standards to provide better benefits at a lower cost. Expert assistance can help analyze existing policies and guide decision-makers through a personalized insurance renewal journey.

In April 2020, they made group health insurance mandatory for all commercial and industrial offices, workplaces, and establishments to offer group health insurance to their employees, ensuring better access to medical care and protection for the workforce.​

How is group medical insurance different from individual health cover?

Group Health Insurance

125 /life/month*

Individual: Does not cover pre-existing diseases, making affordable plans difficult to find.

Policy Structuring

Group: Company structures a common policy for all employees.

Individual: Typically includes a 30-day waiting period.

Added Benefits

Affordable Premiums with Comprehensive Benefits:
Compare the costs and benefits of various group health insurance plans to find one that meets your budget while providing comprehensive coverage. Avoid simply selecting the cheapest option; instead, look for a plan that balances affordability with essential benefits.

Round-the-Clock Support:

Group medical insurance offers numerous benefits for employers, including increased employee satisfaction, tax advantages, and enhanced productivity. Providing health coverage fosters a supportive work environment, helping attract and retain top talent.

Additionally, healthier employees result in reduced absenteeism and increased efficiency, contributing to the overall success of the company.

Group health insurance policies are designed to provide healthcare coverage to a group of individuals, usually employees of a company. The employer selects a policy from an insurance provider, which then offers coverage to eligible employees and, in some cases, their dependents. Group insurance premiums are more affordable compared to an Individual policy with similar benefits. The policy outlines the benefits and coverage limits, and claim settlements are made directly between the insurance provider and the healthcare provider. Group health insurance offers cost-effective coverage, simplified administration, and access to quality healthcare for employees.

Group health insurance policy costs depend on factors such as the number of employees, sum insured, and selected benefits.
