The Health Council has noticed an increase in employers who are not providing their employees with health insurance coverage. Currently, there are 46 non-compliant employers, affecting 261 employees and non-working spouses.
The Health Council monitors and enforces compliance with Section 20(1) the Health Insurance Act 1970. The Act requires every employer to provide health insurance for employees and nonemployed spouses of employees.
There are situations in which employers are exempt from having to provide health insurance such as when employees:
Work 15 hours or less weekly
Are employed for 2 months or less
Are students employed during weekends, public holidays or half term holidays.
The Health Council also requires local insurers to provide monthly updates of companies who have inactive health insurance policies as summarized in the chart below.
