Welcome to the HCB Group
HCB Group has provided independent employee health, wellness and claims management services to Employers, Intermediaries, Insurers and Pension Scheme Trustees in the UK and Ireland for over 30 years.
Based in Oxfordshire, UK with additional locations in Dublin, and Portland, Maine USA (through our relationship with PDA), HCB Group is able to leverage our expertise and understanding of the Employee Health and Claims markets to enable clients to make informed decisions in the management of employee health, employee wellness or insured claims.
We appreciate that every client, every case and every person we work with needs different levels and types of support, so you will not receive a standardised take it or leave solution from us. What we offer clients no matter whether you are a SME or a multinational business is a practical solution and cost-effective service based on expertise, knowledge, experience and customer service.
We believe that we have an outstanding track record of service delivery and a proven return on investment.
