PPS GI Locum Insurance
PPS GI has designed this policy to protect the profits of your practice in the event of an illness or injury involving one of your fee generating members of staff.
With a choice of deferment periods and benefits paid for either 52 or 104 weeks, the practice can choose to either employ a locum or allow other members of staff to cater for the absence.
Premiums are paid by the practice, allowing this to be a fully tax deductible business expense. There is no requirement for receipts to be provided in the event of a claim, the benefit is simply paid to the practice at the weekly sum insured selected, following the deferment period.
In January 2017, our scheme was moved to Aviva Insurance Limited and cover was completely reviewed to include additional options and enhanced covers.
Aviva is one of the UK’s leading insurers combined strong life insurance, general insurance and asset management businesses under one powerful brand. They help people save for the future and manage the risks of every day life, protecting their 29+ million customers and what’s important to them. You can find more about Aviva at www.aviva.com/about-us.
Options are now available for cover with a 12 month pre existing clause, for 12 months following any medical advice being sought, a limited pre-existing condition clause with a 10 day absence exclusion or full cover, without any medical exclusions at all. Premiums are highly competitive on each option, with additional discounts for those clients that insure both their surgery & locum cover with us.
Policy Features & Benefits
Staff Absence Insurance
Covering your support staff this policy provides payment to your practice in the event of illness or injury resulting in their absence. The benefit paid in the event of a claim can be used to subsidise the employee’s salary, cover a locum or simply to pay overtime to existing members of staff.
As with our Locum Shield, premiums are paid by the practice and are therefore fully tax deductible as a business expense.
“We invited PPS GI to tender for our practice insurances as soon as I joined Cinque Ports as the practice manager, as I had used them before and was impressed. Not only was the PPS GI quote far cheaper than our existing cover but was also much more comprehensive and specific to our needs. Since then the knowledge and support provided by the PPS GI team has been faultless. No telephone call centres, nice people and they do what they promise. They come highly recommended.”
