Healix Health, the UK’s leading independent healthcare trust provider, has today announced the addition of a bespoke benefit to its corporate healthcare trust plan to support employees needing professional assessment and treatment for their neurodevelopmental disorders.
With 1 in 7 people in the UK estimated to be neurodivergent, creating a supportive and inclusive workplace is more important than ever.1 Healix’s offering provides employers with the ability to support their staff for recognised conditions such as dyslexia, dysgraphia, autism, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), which are typically excluded from traditional Private Medical Insurance (PMIs). While current NHS waiting times mean patients have to wait for months for a ‘suspected autism’ referral, Healix’s service helps employees seek diagnoses and treatment through facilitated access to the specialists, including providing the freedom to select and use the best practitioners for their individual circumstance.2
The benefit is designed to suit both employers and employees, with a strong focus on clinical outcomes. It offers flexibility for employers to choose from two levels of care, either for assessment alone, or for both assessment and treatment, to assist employees with neurodiverse conditions and their families.
The addition of the service is part of Healix’s commitment to healthcare benefits that encourage inclusivity and diversity in the workplace. By valuing the unique skills of neurodivergent employees and assisting them through their individual challenges, Healix is helping employers pave the way for supportive workplaces.
