Description: The aim of the project is to ensure the continuation of healthcare to NHS standards from 1 April 2015 for HMG staff posted overseas and their dependants and for staff based in the UK who travel overseas on official business. Following an EU open procurement exercise, a new contract has been awarded to Healix International. Five additional Government departments have joined the scheme so the numbers of staff and dependants covered by the contract have increased from 14,000 to 23,000 . The contract will provide medical clearance, case management, access to medical care and medical advice. The FCO and other participating Departments pay actual medical costs as they are incurred.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Green
DCA text: Following the review, the Full Business Case was developed further as recommended and subsequently received approval from HM Treasury and Cabinet Office. Further work has since been done on Benefits and Key Performance Indicators. Government departments are continuing to work well together on implementation including sharing of best practice.

Baseline: £0.09m
Forecast: £0.09m
Variance: 0.00%
Variance text: Budget variance less than 5%
Whole Life Cost: £55.99m
WLCost text: The whole life costs are made up of two parts: i) the management fee payable to Healix over the five year period. This is fixed for the first three years and limited to CPI increase for the optional final two years; ii) estimated costs for medical treatment and associated travel over five years. Medical costs will vary from year to year according to clinical need so cannot be precisely estimated but we have based this estimate on average costs incurred per person over the first four years of the previous contract.
