About us

Founded in 1871, Medicash was originally started through helping to finance local voluntary hospitals in the Victorian times and later evolved as the Penny in the Pound Fund.

Medicash as we know it today is one of the UK's oldest and largest healthcare cash plan providers. And now our benefits allow over 200,000 policyholders across the UK to take a positive approach to health.

We believe in charity. One of the traditions we are most proud of is our commitment to charitable giving. The Medicash charitable Trust has donated over £1 million to NHS and health related charities over the past decade alone.

Medicash has been awarded the Investor in Customers Gold award for exceptional customer service. This is the highest accolade awarded and we are the only health cash plan provider to achieve this level of accreditation.  We also hold the prestigious ISO award for Information Security Management, meaning we are committed to looking after your data and ensuring that it is handled and managed according to the highest standards possible.

This all adds up to a picture of a 21st century organisation with traditional values: A company that operates nationally but is still proud of its roots.

But don’t just take our word for it, read our Trust Pilot reviews here and see first-hand what our policyholders think about us.
