Self-employed gain health insurance benefits thanks to new partnership
The Association of Independent Professionals and the Self Employed (IPSE) has launched a new partnership with AXA PPP healthcare, giving its members access to a range of health insurance and wellbeing benefits. The affiliation will see the IPSE, which represents all UK self-employed workers, including freelancers, contractors, consultants and independents, provide its members with access class-leading? health insurance products and services. As many as one in seven of the workforce can be classified as self-employed and could therefore benefit from the relationship. Welcoming the partnership, IPSE CEO, Chris Bryce, said: We are thrilled to announce our exciting new association with AXA PPP healthcare. “AXA PPP has a long and proud history of looking after the healthcare needs of its members, so we are delighted to welcome this significant and mutually-rewarding relationship. IPSE members will be able to benefit from a medical insurance plan which includes fast-track GP appointments, access to different GPs for second opinions on diagnoses or treatments, and access to a 24-hour a day telephone information service with access to medical professionals and experts. Members will have access to online health and wellbeing resources, including a database with information on a wide range of fitness and healthy lifestyle choices.
