The Simplyhealth Optimise health plan

What is a corporate health plan?


A corporate health plan allows employees to claim money back on their health and wellbeing costs (up to a set amount).

This includes physio fees, dental check-ups, eye tests, and more.

Through a corporate health plan, employees can get access to the healthcare they need, when they need it.



Our corporate health plan is called Optimise. With six levels of cover, it's ideal for a huge variety of companies. As long as you have three or more employees, you can set up a plan. Healthcare costs, like check-ups and prescriptions, are split into pots with annual limits based on the cover chosen.


The benefits don't just focus on physical wellbeing either. We know how important mental health is. That's why we include myWellbeing with every plan. Our online portal provides access to employee assistance programmes (EAP) and a 24/7 GP helpline. There are also other benefits that support overall health, like discounts on gym memberships.

Access to essential healthcare services has never been more important


We recently adapted our Optimise plan to help your employees get fast, virtual access to essential healthcare that includes:

  • Virtual GP appointments, available 24/7
  • Physiotherapy assessment and triage, through our app
  • Claim back prescription costs, up to £35

The benefits don't just focus on physical wellbeing either. We know how important mental health is. That's why we include with every plan:

  • Telephone counselling services, available 24/7
  • Wellbeing and lifestyle guidance, available 24/7
  • myWellbeing, our online portal provides access to employee assistance programmes (EAP) and a 24/7 GP helpline.

Why choose Optimise by Simplyhealth for your employees?



The visible value for your employees

Unlike more reactive health insurance, with a health plan you don't have to wait for something to go wrong.


The support of both physical and mental health in a single employee benefit

Health and wellbeing is a vast area. And catering to all your employees isn’t easy. Our cash plan can be used by everyone. We cover the basics like dentists, opticians, even private GP appointments. But we also include the essential extras like a counselling service. 


The easy claiming process

We aren't here to make things difficult. We’re transparent in what we provide. We want your team fighting fit. And when needed, our online claiming portal is available 24/7, so employees don’t need to spend working hours on hold.


The positive impact on recruiting and retention through an excellent benefits package

Employee turnover can be damaging to morale and costly to your business. You want to keep your talent engaged. A benefits package with clear value can do that, whilst aiding recruitment as well. 


The range of funding methods 

We offer four options so you can choose a plan that suits you. Pay for all your employees, provide a flexible benefits scheme, implement a salary deduct scheme, or allow your employees to choose to pay for it themselves.


The quick and easy process to join Simplyhealth

It's a simple five-step process to come on board, and we have a PDF guide to help you through.

myWellbeing including 24/7 GP and EAP

The Optimise health plan includes added benefits across all levels. One of these benefits is myWellbeing. This online portal provides access to speak to an NHS practising GP 24/7 as well as health information tools. We also have an easy-to-access 24/7 Employee Assistance Programme (EAP)


EAPs are a brilliant way for employers to provide support for their staff across a range of needs. Our EAP offers access to a variety of support tools, with counselling being one of them. Financial and legal information and lifestyle advice are included too.


With our plans, telephone-based counselling comes as standard. Employees have the choice of a chat 'in the moment', a series of structured sessions, or they can opt for online support. If selected by the employer, employees have the option of face-to-face counselling as well.


myWellbeing is full of additional features. There are discounts at over 3,000 participating gyms, on sports equipment, and on days out.
