Aiz5yM.png

Helping you pay for the cost of routine healthcare such as dental check-ups, new glasses or contact lenses, physiotherapy and other treatments.

  • 100% cash back for dental and optical costs, up to £130 per year
  • 100% for dental accidents, up to £1,000 per year
  • 75% for therapy treatments such as physiotherapy, osteopathy and acupuncture, up to £150 per year 
  • £30 per night for hospital inpatient treatment, up to £600 per year
  • Guaranteed acceptance for UK residents aged 18-60
  • No medical questions
  • Easy to claim
  • This policy is underwritten by Advent Insurance PCC Ltd - UIB Cell
  • What is it?

    Put simply, the Health Cash Plan is an easy, low-cost way to look after your essential medical requirements, including 100% of your money back on dental and optical cover (up to a maximum of £130 benefit each per year). The plan also covers therapy treatments and you'll also get money back towards specialist diagnostic consultation fees.

    With cover at £23.45 per month, a few treatments a year is often all it takes to see the plan pay its way.

    Plus:

    • There are no medical questions
    • Cover for accidents is instant.

    It isn't private medical insurance, but what it will do, is give you cash to cover more routine services, such as a visit to the optician, a dental filling or physio for a sore shoulder. It even pays out £200 for a new baby (a 300-day qualifying period applies). Terms and conditions apply, see policy wording for full exclusions and limitations.

    Rather than relying on savings or a credit card, the health cash plan enables you to claim back some or all the expense.... because those expenses do add up!

    Here's how it works:
