Frequently asked questions

Making a claim for treatment is very straightforward, members simply follow the steps below.

Step 1
Whether they have a GP referral or are referring themselves for treatment, they must call their helpline on 01475 492195.

Step 2
Our Customer Services team will pre-authorise their initial consultations or treatment and advise them on next steps.

Step 3
Should further consultations or treatment be required, the Customer Services team will either pre-authorise further cover or will put them through to a nurse who will confirm cover as appropriate.

No, we offer self-referral options via our preferred providers for Physiotherapy (Nuffield Health), Mental Health (Nuffield Health), Cancer Diagnostics (Check4Cancer), Detox at Home (Archangel UK). We also offer self-referral to osteopathy or chiropractic treatment with a provider of choice.

We have a number of underwriting options available on our Health Flex palns including Continuing Personal Medical Exclusions (CPME), Medical History Disregarded (MHD), New Moratorium or New Full Medical Underwriting (FMU). Please speak to our sales team for further information.

With Health Flex Level 3, we offer a comprehensive level of cancer cover with a balanced programme of support and clinical expertise provided to those diagnosed with cancer. We’ll pay costs for active and evidence based treatment of a primary cancer or a cancer that has spread from its original site, known as secondary cancer or metastatic spread.

We may cover the costs of participating in a regulated phase III or IV clinical trial in the United Kingdom in conjunction with the commonly accepted, established and effective evidence based treatment and where there is perceived advantage to the trial treatment.

We also pay a contribution towards wigs and mastectomy bras for members undergoing cancer treatment.

It’s important to note that the cancer treatments we cover may not necessarily cure the disease but are given to control and maintain tumour size. Cover ends when this treatment is no longer effective at shrinking the cancer, stabilising it or slowing the spread of the disease and is only serving to keep the patient comfortable. At this stage a hospice donation for end of life care is available.

We offer Dental and Travel insurances as buy-up options. Speak with our sales team for further information.

Cigna Health Flex plans require a minimum of 2 employees.
