Health Shield was established in 1877 at a time before the NHS or the welfare state, when people needed to find ways to provide for themselves and their families in times of need.
Still driven by the ideals of their original members, Health Shield is today an award-winning provider of Health Cash Plans and health and well-being benefits.
Members of the non-profit friendly society can claim back their everyday healthcare treatment costs up to their chosen maximum level.
