Simplyhealth and Physio First join forces

From April Simplyhealth, will promote the professional and marketplace value of Physio First members, and Quality Assured Practitioners in particular, to customers in need of private physiotherapy.

Simplyhealth - dedicated to everyday health

Who are Simplyhealth?

We are the largest health cash plan provider in the UK. Simplyhealth cash plans mean your patients receive cover with simple explanations, simple cover options and claims service to support their everyday health needs. We are a business with no shareholders; our profits go straight back into supporting customers and healthcare charities. Last year we donated £1.4m to charitable causes, touching the lives of over two million people.

Simplyhealth and AXA PPP

Simplyhealth sold its private medical insurance and self-funded health plan businesses to AXA PPP healthcare in August 2015 - and the two companies are now entirely separate entities.

Why this partnership between Simplyhealth and Physio First?

The relationship benefits both sides:

  • Simplyhealth does not fix fees for practitioners, allowing members to continue to decide the appropriate levels of treatments for their patients
  • Physio First members will be offered access to Simplyhealth cash plans. Quote ‘PFirst’ when contacting us.
  • More than 80% of the average self-employed physio’s patients pay for their own treatment....Simplyhealth can help patients to fund treatment through an everyday health plan

A commitment to grow together

Mark Hamson, Managing Director, Corporate & Consumer, at Simplyhealth says: “Our partnership with Physio First underlines our commitment to work alongside physiotherapists and other practitioners to provide people with the support they need for their everyday health, when it is most needed.”

Pam Simpson Chairman of Physio First added: “We look forward to working together to build the private physiotherapy market in the UK, for the benefit of our members.”

The Simplyhealth Practitioner Community – connecting practitioners and customers

How it will benefit you?

As a practitioner, you receive a simpler, more professional partnership that can actively help increase your visibility, improve your cash flow and help you achieve your business goals.

We are committing to do this by allowing you to:

Set your own fees. Your patients require different levels of care. Unlike some PMI products, Simplyhealth don’t force fixed fees on you, so you can always give superior levels of treatment.

Having less paperwork. Less form filling than some PMI products and minimal reporting means you can focus more time on your patients and your business.

Creating a Practitioner Community. A new and exciting way of working that helps you, your patients and Simplyhealth interact for the benefit of all. This operates via an online portal, and your practice will be accessible by over 3.5 million Simplyhealth customers.
