Cigna Fee Schedule
Cigna Fee Schedule
We expect all accredited Cigna providers to abide by The Cigna Fee Schedule, the schedule contains fair and reasonable maximum fees for Surgery and Anaesthesia, as well as guideline fees for Initial and Follow up consultations. These fees are based on complexity, average duration of the procedure, information from our claims experience, the CCSD schedule and benchmarked against other fee schedules in the public domain in the United Kingdom. Please use the search function to calculate your fees.
Due to evolving medical practice, The Cigna Fee Schedule is reviewed periodically and therefore, complexities and/or fee values of procedures may change, maximum procedure fee reimbursement could go up or down.
Before treating a Cigna member
All practitioners should advise Cigna members of the costs of any treatment (including consultations) being provided. If fees exceed the Cigna Fee Schedule, practitioners should advise the member to contact Cigna member services before any treatment takes place.
Consultation fees and surgery/anaesthetist fees represent a significant element of total claims costs in private medical insurance and subsequently, have a major effect on premiums. For premiums to remain affordable, practitioners, private facilities and health insurers need to work together to provide quality private healthcare at a reasonable and affordable price.
Guideline fees for Consultations
Initial Consultation – face to face - £205
Follow-up Consultation – face to face - £145
Initial Consultation – remote - £205 (where clinically appropriate)
Follow-up Consultation – remote - £145 (where clinically appropriate)
Extended Physician Consultation - £250 (over 40 mins)
***It is important to note that, in order to support both its Members and Providers during the pandemic, Cigna has decided to reimburse remote consultations at the same level as face to face; subject to clinical appropriateness. However, this may be reviewed in the future and you should regularly check this website for updates.

Cigna is a member of The Clinical Coding and Schedule Development (CCSD) group. The CCSD schedule contains industry standard codes for surgical procedures and diagnostic tests in UK private healthcare. Their key initiative is to develop a common set of codes and descriptions across the UK private healthcare sector.
The CCSD schedule is reviewed regularly and reflects current medical practice. At each review, new codes are added, existing codes updated and some codes deleted. Please go to ccsd.org.uk to view the schedule and to learn more about the objectives of CCSD.
