The Morrisons health care cash plan, provided by Sovereign Health Care, starts from £1.95 per week and, when the time comes that you need new glasses, have to visit the dentist or spend money on prescriptions, you can claim money back. Plus get £20 in Morrisons vouchers when you join!*
See below for more information about how the Morrisons health care cash plan works, how to apply and useful downloads.
When you make a claim, you’ll receive back 100% of your dental and optical costs up to your cover level limit. For all other benefits, you’ll receive back 50% of your costs up to your cover level limit, and some benefits pay a fixed sum. See the table of benefits for more details. It covers NHS and private treatment and you can choose your practitioner.
When you register for Sovereign’s online customer area, not only can you claim online, you can also access a 24-hour GP service where you can speak to a practising NHS GP wherever you are in the world. Plus, through Sovereign Perks you can access a range of online and high street discounts.
This health care cash plan is exclusively for Morrisons colleagues and as long as you are an employee of Morrisons you can apply to join. No medical is needed and the same price applies to everyone regardless of age or medical history. Plus, for no extra cost, an adult’s plan covers up to four dependent children, aged under 18, for many of the benefits. You can also pay to cover your partner or a family member, and they’ll receive £20 in Morrisons vouchers too as a thank you.*
This example is based on you having level 3 cover, which costs £2.94 per person per week (£152.88 per year). If you were to claim on dental, optical, physiotherapy and prescription costs you could get £275.18 cash back on the £369.65 you spent on treatment. Please note physiotherapy has a 6 month qualifying period for pre-existing conditions.Scroll to see more

Claiming is easy – you can send your claim online or by post, it’s entirely up to you! Once received, your claim will be processed promptly and your money can go directly into your bank account. You’ve got plenty of time to claim, a whole 12 months from when you received treatment. You cannot currently make dependent child claims online and should send these by post.
When you join the Morrisons health care cash plan you can claim straightaway for treatment received from the date your policy starts. However, certain benefits do have a qualifying period or a 6 month qualifying period for pre-existing conditions. The birth/adoption benefit has a 6 month qualifying period. A 6 month qualifying period for pre-existing conditions applies on physiotherapy/osteopathy/chiropractic/ sports massage, hospital in-patient, recuperation, hospital day case admission, hospital consultant fees and diagnostic tests, hearing aids and specialist medical aids.
Applying is easy, simply fill in the short online application form. You’ll need your employee ID number to join – you can find this on your pay slip.
