IPT and beyond – A growing role for corporate healthcare trusts?


Published Wednesday, February 17, 2016

A 30-minute live debate with Corporate Advisor on 29th January 2016 brought together an expert panel to discuss the growing role of corporate healthcare trusts in the wake of the recent increase in insurance premium tax, and against a backdrop of soaring medical inflation.


The debate covered:

  • Who corporate healthcare trust schemes are suitable for
  • How they can be used to reduce corporate healthcare costs
  • What other advantages they offer in terms of benefit design and claims management
  • How they can be utilised to integrate an employer’s health & wellbeing provision and optimise overall budget
  • The legal and taxation implications of a corporate healthcare trust structure
  • The Government’s attitude to corporate healthcare trusts and will this evolve going forward?

The expert panel comprised Richard Saunders, sales director at Healix Health Service, Kirsty Bartlett, partner at law firm Squire Patton Boggs and Iain Laws, managing director, healthcare and group risk at Jelf Employee Benefits – and was chaired by Corporate Adviser editor John Greenwood.
