Sovereign Health Care
Sovereign Health Care was established in 1873 and is one of the UK’s longest established providers of health care cash plans to individuals and businesses. Founded in Bradford, we are the only cash plan provider to remain proudly based in West Yorkshire and we have over 72,000 customers across the UK. Originally established as a hospital fund, Sovereign still stands by our original principle – to support people when they need to access health care. We do this by providing cash plans to individuals and businesses which help people afford their everyday health care.
Taking care of employees’ health and wellbeing
Sovereign works with hundreds of businesses, from SMEs to some of the largest employers in the region. From just a few pounds per employee per month, our cash plans are a quick, easy and cost-effective way for organisations to support the health and wellbeing of employees. Cash plans are designed to pay out for everyday health costs such as dental treatment, eye tests, glasses/contact lenses, physiotherapy, chiropody and even preventive measures such as health screening. What’s more, they also include 24/7 access to confidential GP and counselling services, as well as practical legal, financial and consumer information.
Helping business attract and retain talent
Offering a health care cash plan within your benefits package can help businesses attract and retain talent, with people increasingly looking for employers who actively demonstrate they care. The comprehensive emotional and financial support our cash plans provide enable employees to proactively manage their own health, which is mutually beneficial for employees and employers alike.
As well as supporting our customers, Sovereign has a longstanding history of helping charities, community groups and organisations working to improve the health and wellbeing of those living in West Yorkshire. As a not-for-profit company, we are able to donate an amount equivalent to between 5 and 10 per cent of our annual turnover through our Community Programme. In the last 13 years we have donated over £9 million to health and wellbeing good causes including over £2 million to Yorkshire NHS Trusts.
Working with Sovereign is good all round! Good for our customers, good for the community and good for business. Talk to us to find out more.
