Businesses will be better placed to maximise return on investment in employee benefits thanks to a new service run by nurses and administration experts.
Advocate is an innovative insurance claims administration and management service from Northwich-based PMI Health Group, the UK's largest independently-owned provider of employee health risk management.
Regular reports on how different health and group risk policies are being used by employees will be provided to companies - including details of high claims - to help them effectively coordinate their reward and benefit programmes.
Advocate will also oversee time-consuming membership changes and the claims management of benefit schemes, while providing a confidential health advice and support helpline for employees.
"By monitoring benefit usage, such as the number and effectiveness of physiotherapy sessions, companies can ensure health and benefits programmes are meeting their strategic goals - whether cutting sickness absence levels or improving staff productivity," said PMI Health Group Operations Director Rachael Floyd.
"We have provided nurse-led claims management for a number of years but Advocate extends our service offering and makes it a more affordable and compelling option for smaller businesses."
Advocate is being offered to businesses with four different levels of service, covering both single and multi-product provision.
