L&G launches MSK support for GIP customers

Patients will be seen within five days of referral

Legal & General is offering musculoskeletal (MSK) physiotherapy support to its group income protection (GIP) customers via a new partnership with Physio Med.

Physio Med will play a central role in supporting Legal & General Group Income Protection’s early intervention and rehabilitation service, designed to provide a fast and more sustainable return to work. 

According to L&G, 98% of the UK population can access a Physio Med practice within 30 minutes of travel. Patients will be seen within a maximum of five working days from referral.

Vanessa Sallows (pictured), benefits and governance director at Legal & General, said by focusing on rehabilitation, early intervention and high-quality treatment, the insurer can make a tangible difference in helping people return to work where appropriate, benefiting both employer and employee.

“We understand the detrimental challenges that can arise from time off work for both businesses and individuals, which is why we continue to partner with market leaders, contributing to healthy and productive workforces,” she stated.
