WPA wins Best Group Health Insurance Provider at the UK Health and Protection Awards 2023

WPA was delighted to win best Group Health Insurance Provider at the UK Health and Protection Awards 2023, which were held at the Hilton, Park Lane, in London.

WPA’s health insurance and wellbeing products were also recognised for their customer centric focus and innovation, standing out from the competition that included BUPA, Aviva and Axa.

WPA has a range of comprehensive healthcare solutions and advanced services to support employee health and wellbeing ranging from:

  • Precision Corporate Healthcare for SME’s wanting a dynamic solution, supplemented by the market leading Group Deductible to help companies reduce costs with no additional risk
  • WPA Protocol Corporate Healthcare Trust for larger companies who wish to ‘self-insure’ and achieve unsurpassed flexibility. In comparison to the equivalent insured arrangements, customers can reduce costs by in the region of 10% through an HMRC approved funding vehicle

WPA’s corporate products are backed up, and supplemented, by excellent customer service excellence credentials, including being the Which? Recommended Private Medical Insurer and consistently market leading Trustpilot scores.

Specialist in-house clinical teams providing dedicated and personal claims management to support customers with complex clinical needs, while a freedom to choose ethos means customers can choose when, where and who provides their treatment – something which others in the UK health insurance market constrain.

Russell Kane, the host on the night, announced WPA as truly customer centric with huge innovation in claims handling.

On picking up the award, Kathryn Vellacott, WPA’s General Manager of Business Development, said: “Employee Health is so important to corporate healthcare.  Companies are recognising that healthy employees are so much more productive, partly explaining WPA’s 17% growth over the last 12 months.

“Winning the Group Health Insurance Provider of the Year is not just recognition of the WPA way of standing out from the market.  It’s also recognition of every single member of the team to exceed every single customer’s expectation.”
