Staying Healthy with Simply Health

Staying Healthy with Simply Health

Being a Social care worker is not always very easy. Caring and supporting another person every day can be tiring and at times challenging. We realise that our carers make every effort to help their client live well and healthy and sometimes forget about their own health. Therefore, we offer all of our carers a subsidised Simply Health Cash Back Plan

The Simply Cash Plan is an affordable health cash plan that helps them cover the cost of visiting the dentist, optician, physiotherapist, chiropractor, and a number of other healthcare professionals.

Whether it is a check-up, treatment or an emergency, Simply Health gives cash back so our carers can budget and get the treatment they need or want.

The carers can also get access to MyWellbeing. A service where they can get medical help and speak to a qualified and practising GP 24 hours a day – 365 days a week, talk to trained counsellors 24 hours a day, and find useful information to help manage a range of health conditions.

So how does it work?

  1. They book and attend their appointment
  2. Send Simply Health the claim form and receipt (either online or by post)
  3. Simply health will process your claim
  4. Once it is approved, they receive money back in their account usually within a few days!

It is that simple!
