2. Direct payment of medical expenses
How can I avoid advancing the costs of my treatment?
In case of a planned admission, contact us well in advance so we can arrange for direct payment of your expenses, if applicable to your plan.
Direct payment is also possible in case of an emergency or accident. Simply show your membership card to the health care provider upon admission and have someone contact us as soon as possible.
How does direct payment work?
To help us arrange direct payment in case of a planned hospitalisation, please follow these steps:
Log in to your personal webpages and search for your preferred provider in the Provider List section. If your provider has no direct payment agreement with us, simply contact us and we will try and arrange direct payment on a case-by-case basis.
Then to go the CONTACT page and click Request a guarantee of payment. Fill in all the necessary information and send the form to us.
You can also ask the provider to fill in the Cost estimate form.
Please remember to include as many details as possible when you send us a Guarantee of payment request. We need to know the diagnosis, the planned treatment and if possible the estimated cost. If you have any medical reports or prescriptions, please include them in your request.
Cigna sends a Guarantee of payment (GOP) to both you and the provider. This document mentions whether or not the treatment is covered and what portion of the expenses will be invoiced to us directly.
Upon admission, show your membership card and Guarantee of payment to the provider.
Cigna settles the bill directly with the provider. You only have to pay the remaining patient portion. After we settle with the provider, you will receive a settlement note.
