The Morrisons health care cash plan, provided by Sovereign Health Care, starts from as little as £1.86 per week and, when the time comes that you need new glasses, have to visit the dentist or spend money on medical 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 the maximum payback amount for the level of cover you’ve chosen. For all other benefits, you’ll receive back up to 50% of your costs and some benefits pay back a fixed sum, as detailed in the table of benefits. 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 UK 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. There’s no medical needed and the same price applies to everyone regardless of age, medical history or how often you claim. Plus dependent children under the age of 18 are covered for free 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!*
If you’re new to cash plans here’s an example of how they work:

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 submit your claim online or via 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.
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. Laser or refractive eye surgery (within the optical benefit) has a 12 month qualifying period. The birth/adoption benefit has a 6 month qualifying period. A 6 month qualifying period for pre-existing conditions applies on physiotherapy/osteopathy/chiropractic, hospital in-patient, recuperation, hospital day case admission, hospital consultant fees and diagnostic tests, hearing aids and specialist medical aids.
Applying is easy, simply complete the short online application form. You’ll need your employee ID number to join – you can find this on your pay slip.
