Platinum Choice; an executive class healthcare option

13 June 2008

It is becoming clear to many companies that providing private medical insurance (PMI) as a part of their benefits package is not always enough to attract and retain high level employees. As PMI becomes a more common offering, Human Resources departments are realising that providing additional benefits that go beyond PMI enables differentiation of their employment proposition and makes employees feel truly valued.

HCA International, London’s top private hospital group, has developed a unique service for employees; Platinum Choice, a package offered to corporate customers which provides a suite of services that can be tailored to the specific needs of each employee.

Platinum Choice encompasses a wide range of luxury services that are not generally included in PMI packages. These include services such as chauffeuring to and from the hospital, private accommodation for family members, complimentary guest meals, discounted health screening services and discounts on services such as obstetrics (at the Portland Hospital), IVF (at the Lister Hospital) and cosmetic surgery.

The package sits alongside a company’s PMI, so whichever insurance carrier a company uses they can add Platinum Choice to provide additional benefits that insurance doesn’t cover. Platinum Choice covers every HCA healthcare facility in London. With seven hospitals (including our recent joint venture for cancer care with University College London Hospital) and four outpatient clinics throughout London HCA has a healthcare facility that’s convenient to almost every office in London.

According to independent, industry leading magazine Health Insurance “providing a typical PMI benefit is no longer enough” for major employers in London. “Platinum Choice is based on enhancing the patient experience in facilities of the very highest quality.”
