Battery post cover

Yesterday a honda service writer (not mechanic) cleaned my battery posts that were full of corrosion. I guess he didn't want to take a mechanics time. During the process he tore off the red plastic cover for the postive post. Does this cover serve any important purpose? Is there a way to replace it?

Service manager said they can't replace just the plastic cap - would have to replace the whole positive cable -which he said he would do under warranty, but I am not sure I want them to do that. What all is involved? I believe it runs from the fuse box to the starter?
