HealthAssure: Covering the corporate health insurance gap

2 comments

How do companies take care of their employees’ health? Ask human resource departments and, more often than not, the answer is: “We buy our employees an insurance policy.” While that takes care of hospitalisation and emergency treatment, it neglects primary and preventive health care.
