No, a cash plan offers money back on everyday healthcare bills, like trips to the optician, dentist or physiotherapist, up to annual limits. Traditional private medical insurance gives you more comprehensive cover for medical conditions and can include consultations, diagnosis and surgery.
Cash plans help you budget for the cost of visiting the dentist, optician, physiotherapist and a number of other healthcare professionals. You pay a monthly premium, and then claim back the cost of those visits, up to your annual payment limits.
Bear in mind, to claim from Simplyhealth for a treatment, you don't need to have had a GP referral.
