Our story

Our roots

Health is a right, not a privilege. But getting help with health isn’t always easy. Healthcare access can vary depending on where you live, it can feel like it takes forever to get answers, it can be hard to fit into already busy lives, and it can be expensive. This is why we are here.

Formed in 1872, we’ve seen a lot of change within the healthcare industry, from the creation of the Hospital Savings Association (HSA) to the formation of the NHS. Throughout this period, we’ve adapted our service to accommodate the needs of our customers.

Our name and offering may have changed along the way, but our purpose remains the same: improving access to healthcare, for the many, for the long term.

How we help you support Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

Our heritage has always been focussed on helping the community. Honoured through our charitable programmes and initiatives. 10% of our pre-tax profits are given to carefully selected, like-minded health charities. And our staff have volunteered almost 2,500 working hours to projects close to our hearts.

These community impact activities enable us to make a big difference. Your business can be a part of this. When you choose our plans for your employees, you allow us to continue this work. We can work together to improve health for all, supporting those that need it most.

The Management Information (MI) we provide

Using MI, we keep you up-to-date with useful insights on how your Simplyhealth plan is performing. We look at the data and usage of your plan and evaluate how effective it is. We also identify any underlying health issues within your business. 

Employee information is kept confidential. We build our MI without compromising privacy.

We provide MI reports regularly, not just at renewal. This means you can make the most of your wellbeing investment from the start .

Download the leaflet below to read more about our MI reports.

The benefit usage data that I receive from Simplyhealth helps to inform Virtual College's absence review meetings. I'm able to show our management team the ways we are supporting our employees with their health and wellbeing.

Our account management

We strongly believe in having a single point of contact with our business partners. And this is where your account manager comes in. They'll get to know your business inside-out. They'll manage the implementation and ongoing maintenance of your plan. They'll answer, or find the answers to, questions about your plan. And they'll provide solutions for promoting it internally. Their purpose is to help you.

We've told you lots about ourselves, but why not hear what our customers have to say? Below are a selection of testimonials from customers talking about Simplyhealth and our products.


The health plan has become part of the very being of our organisation. It’s so much more than claiming some of your healthcare fees back. Simplyhealth have been really keen to get involved, and invest their time, resources and people in supporting our health and wellbeing strategy.

Senior Reward Business Partner, Thirteen Group

[The health plan] allows staff to be seen quicker for health problems, instead of experiencing lengthy waiting times. We are very pleased and I would highly recommend Simplyhealth.

HR Manager, Virtual College

As a busy HR Director, I don't have much spare time to book GP appointments, and so I have found the 24/7 GP access super helpful. I have also used the prescription service, and claimed it back through the cash back plan - it was such an easy process.

HR Director, Millsted Care

The Scout Association has been providing its employees with Simplyhealth’s Simply Cash Plan since April 2006. During that time, we have received excellent service; employees particularly love the easy to use online portal and the swift reimbursement of their healthcare costs.

Payroll and Pensions Manager, The Scout Association

I looked at several schemes and Simplyhealth gave us the best all-round benefits. These have been further enhanced since we joined four years ago. Some of the wellbeing material they offer to allow proactive health management is excellent. They’ll even work with you to develop bespoke marketing material to tackle any specific health issues you may have. We did a campaign on back care as many of our employees’ roles involve manual handling.
