Providing updates for Simplyhealth members

We will continue to cover your healthcare and PPE costs


To healthcare practitioners, your safety is their priority. For this reason, you will find that whilst for the public, some restrictions have eased, in healthcare settings they have not eased their cross infection procedures. This is in order to keep you and healthcare staff as safe as possible.

We are responding to this by continuing to pay back the PPE costs associated with treatment covered by your plan, carried out under your plan’s existing benefit limits when you make a claim. You don’t even need to provide a receipt with the PPE charge itemised, as we know that not all practitioners are able to do this. We do of course, still need to have a receipt provided for the treatment with the PPE included.

Getting seen by a healthcare professional is so important and we want to make sure your claiming experience is as easy as it can be.

 

Who's open?


As the regulations currently stand, most healthcare providers remain open for appointments.

Please contact your chosen provider as normal and they will be able to advise you.

Supporting our community

 

The coronavirus pandemic has significantly impacted charities and community groups throughout the UK, with fundraising efforts being reduced and services scaled back. 

 

Here at Simplyhealth, we are proud that we have been able to increase the support we can offer to our communities at this challenging time. 

 

Our donations have been going where they are needed most, in support of vital, frontline services that are helping some of the most vulnerable people in society right now. Together, we’re helping more people access the healthcare they need.
