What is a health cash plan?

Dental check-ups and treatment, contact lenses, glasses… do you pay for these regularly?

A health cash plan is a fantastic and affordable way to claim money back towards these essential health costs.

Health cash plans cover much more than just optical and dental bills: chiropody, therapy treatments, homeopathy, maternity/paternity/adoption, and day surgery for example… the list goes on and on.

How do I claim my money back?

  1. Save the receipts from your health expenses
  2. Submit them as a claim online or through the post
  3. Receive the money back quickly, straight into your bank account

Why do I need one?

You can get your cashback on everyday healthcare costs, and more! Health cash plans also provide access to valuable health and wellbeing services such as 24 hour GP telephone services, gym membership discounts, 24 hour counselling and advice lines and second medical opinion services. Some even come with exclusive online discounts for your favourite retailers - another great way to save money.

Cover for your dependent children is often included in your plan, and you can effectively double your benefit allowance if your partner purchases a plan at the same level as you too.

So whether you’re a savvy saver, a family on a budget, a health advocate, or just looking for peace of mind and cash back for essential costs, a health cash plan is for you. Don’t forget to tell your friends and family too - knowing they’re healthy, happy and saving money is another guaranteed benefit, and they’ll thank you for it!

How do I make a claim?

It couldn’t be simpler. Just go to your health professional as normal, keep hold of your receipt and submit it to your provider. Claims and payments are usually processed very quickly, meaning you won’t be out of pocket for long. Most providers now accept claims online or through an app, making the process even simpler and swifter.
