Over half extend PMI to all staff

More than half of organisations (51%) extend private medical cover to all employees, compared with 41% in 2001. Despite rising premiums, 25% also cover all dependants. Some 29% of employers could demonstrate that providing such benefits improved return-to-work rates and 24% could also show that this helped attract and recruit staff.
