    • Being self employed or a sole trader is great because it means you’re in control, but it does leave you vulnerable at times. So it’s easy to see why so many consider self employed insurance, however it can be rather confusing as there are so many options on types of cover, from public liability, and tools protection to private medical insurance.

      Good health is pivotal to being truly productive and able to run a business efficiently, whilst sickness can disrupt your flow and quickly result in lost business and less money in the bank. Two things you can do without when you don’t have anybody else to fall back on.

      At AXA PPP healthcare, we know this, so we’ve created flexible, self-employed health insurance. This is sometimes called private medical insurance (PMI).

      In a nutshell PMI offers fast access to medical treatment and other health services privately. If you need healthcare treatment (and it’s covered by your plan) we pay for you to go private. All to help ensure you get back to health and work quickly. Simple as that.

      This is all possible with our Business Health Select plan – sickness insurance for the self employed - a healthcare plan to get you back to work quickly.

    • What does it offer?

      • The ability to build a tailored plan – flexible choices on what to cover.

      • A 24/7 telephone service, Health at Hand, offering you health information and support from medical experts.
