Below you will find answers to questions we frequently get asked about our Good All Round cash plan. If you need any more help, give us a call on 01274 841 130 or enquire online. Lines are open Monday to Thursday from 9am to 5pm, and Fridays from 9am to 4pm.

Who can join?

To join the Good All Round cash plan you must be age 18 or over and under the age of 66 and a permanent UK resident. If you are between the ages of 16 and 18 and in full time employment, we may consider your application on an exceptional basis. For no extra cost, an adult’s plan can cover up to four dependent children aged under 18 too. They enjoy all the same benefits as you, except birth/adoption, and they even get their own payback allowance.

Do I need to have a medical?

No medical is needed to join Sovereign Health Care, although qualifying periods for pre-existing conditions do apply to some benefits.

Will you cover me if I have pre-existing conditions?

Some benefits do have a qualifying period for pre-existing conditions, but these will be covered after six months so the Good All Round cash plan really can be used by everyone. Take a look at the table of benefits to see which benefits have qualifying periods for pre-existing conditions.

How do I pay?

You pay for your cash plan monthly by Direct Debit. To apply online, the bank account that you want your Direct Debit to be deducted from has to be in your own name, or a joint account where either of you can authorise payment.

Does everyone pay the same price?

Yes, everyone pays the same regardless of age or medical history. This is unlike other types of insurance where the price you pay is often determined by your personal circumstances and address. However we do review our products and prices periodically to take account of medical inflation, overall claims experience and the benefits offered. We will give you 30 days’ notice in writing if we intend to make any material changes to your plan, including the price you pay for it or the treatments covered.

How long can I be covered for?

If you keep to the Good All Round cash plan terms and conditions, you can continue to hold your policy for as long as you wish. Your policy will renew automatically each month until it is cancelled or you allow it to lapse – you don’t have to worry about renewing your policy or being tied in for a fixed period. It’s important that you keep us informed of any changes in your personal circumstances (for example if you move house or change your bank account details) so that we can provide you with continuous cover.

Can I claim for treatment received abroad?

You can claim for treatment received anywhere in the world provided by a suitably qualified practitioner, and where this applies, they must be registered with an appropriate professional body recognised by us. For example if you buy your glasses whilst you’re abroad, you can claim for these under your Good All Round cash plan. Claims paid for treatment received outside the UK are paid in pounds at the exchange rate for the relevant currency on the date we settle your claim. Please make sure you send a valid receipt with your claim. If the receipt is not in English, please attach a covering letter in English giving details of the treatment you have received.

Does the dental benefit cover things like wisdom tooth removal?

Yes, the dental benefit does cover wisdom tooth removal. If surgery is required you may also be covered under the hospital benefit.

If you have a pre-existing condition your policy will not cover you for the hospital benefits until after a 6 month qualifying period. The amount you will receive back depends on your level of cover. You can see the full list of what is covered under the dental benefit here.

Does the dental benefit cover oral cancer screening?

The dental benefit does not cover oral cancer screening, however, if an oral cancer screening is available as part of a well person screening you will be able to make a claim under the health screening benefit. You will need to check with your local clinic whether oral cancer screening is available. You can claim back 50% of the costs of an approved health screening, up to your cover level limit, undertaken by medically qualified staff. You can see the full list of what is covered under the dental benefit here.

Can I have a personal cash plan even though I live and work abroad?

No, Sovereign Health Care policies are only available to persons who for UK tax purposes are resident in the UK and have a permanent residence in the UK.
If you are an existing customer of Sovereign Health Care and you temporarily reside outside of the UK, you can continue your policy provided your permanent residential address is in the UK.

Even though my dentist is not part of the NHS can I still claim for dental treatment?

Yes, if you visit a private dentist or an NHS dentist you can claim 100% of the amount you paid for check-ups, hygienist fees, full or partial dentures and x-rays, up to your cover level limit. Just remember to ask for a receipt for the treatment you receive. You can see the full list of what is covered under the dental benefit here.
