Health cash plans

Designed to help you claim money back towards some of you and your family's everyday healthcare expenses

A health cash plan allows you to spread the cost of some of you and your family's everyday health expenses for a regular, monthly premium. Our cover provides a number of routine health benefits, such as money back towards dental treatments and check-ups alongside optical tests and prescription eyewear.

Depending on the plan you choose, a health cash plan also covers some less routine expenses that you or your family may incur, such as those for laser eye treatment, and physiotherapy sessions. Some of our plans also pay cash back towards the cost of consultations with consultants registered with the General Medical Council or General Dental Council.

You can also benefit from a quick and simple online claiming process, or alternatively can still post us your claim forms.

  • Please see below some of the differences between health cash plans and health insurance.

    Health cash plans

    • Health cash plans provide cash payments to help with some routine healthcare costs.
    • You pay for eligible treatments/expenses and then claim up to 100 percent of eligible costs back up to the benefit limit, which will be paid directly into your nominated bank account.
    • You will not need to be referred by a GP to claim any of your benefits.
    • Health cash plan benefits can include cash back towards some of your everyday healthcare expenses such as dental, optical and prescription costs right through to other expenses incurred such as therapy sessions and consultations, depending upon the cash plan chosen.
    • For Cash Plan 100 and Health Expenses, pre existing conditions are covered for all benefits.

    Health insurance

    • Health insurance can cover the cost of private healthcare, from diagnosis to treatment. Your subscription covers all or some of the cost of treatment for conditions that develop after your health insurance policy has begun. You may take out private health insurance because it gives you quick access to medical treatment. The level of cover you get will depend on the policy you take out.
    • Treatment costs are usually paid directly to the consultant/hospital by Bupa with no cash back claim needed.
    • Pre-authorisation from Bupa may be required before treatment.
    • Health insurance may not cover pre-existing conditions, dependent upon the underwriting terms of the policy.

    Subject to the terms of your policy and the benefit limits within it.

  • Our health cash plans are designed to provide cash back towards a variety of everyday healthcare costs, which traditional health insurance may not cover.

    You won’t be able to claim under one policy for costs which have already been reimbursed by another (for example, members holding both Bupa health insurance and a Bupa cash plan). If you have another insurance policy you should refer to the Making claims across more than one insurance policy section of the membership guide before submitting a claim. You can find your membership guide under the ‘Useful documents’ section above.

  • Our health cash plans provide cash back towards some of your everyday healthcare expenses that you and your family may incur, such as dental treatment fees and optical tests, prescription eyewear and many more (depending on the cash plan chosen).

  • No you won't need a medical to take out a health cash plan.

  • To make a claim you must send us a claim form, either by completing our online claim form, or using our postal claims submission service. If you would like to use our postal claims service and you do not have a claim form, you can download a claim form from our claims portal or call us to request one.

    When making claims you will need to provide a fully completed claim form and a copy of your receipts where applicable. You must provide additional information or evidence to support your claim, if we make a reasonable request for you to do so.

    If we do not have the information we need to assess your claim we will contact you to advise the reason(s) why and what information we require. We will only be able to assess your claim if all the required information is provided.

    Claims should be submitted as soon as possible and must be submitted within 24 months of the date treatment, goods or services are received.

  • Yes, providing you send all required supporting documentation and receipts so we can properly assess your claim. You can start claiming immediately for all benefits excluding birth and adoption claims – which have a one year qualifying period.

  • We have two cash plan products to choose from – Cash Plan 100 and Health Expenses. Our cover provides a number of routine health benefits, such as money back towards dental treatments and check-ups alongside optical tests and prescription eyewear.

    Depending on the plan you choose, a health cash plan also covers some less routine expenses that you or your family may incur, such as those for laser eye treatment and physiotherapy sessions.
