Cigna self-referral guide
Self-referral: eligible treatments and preferred providers
For certain health conditions, you don’t always need to be referred for treatment by a GP. It’s useful to have the choice of direct access to the care you need. As a Cigna member, and if you are aged 18 or over, you have the option to self-refer for the treatments listed below. If you choose to refer yourself you must use the preferred providers listed.
Please remember to call Cigna for authorisation and to check your cover before you commit to any treatment.

Choose the route that suits you
Of course there’s always the choice to visit your GP for a referral. Being able to refer yourself is simply another choice. Our aim is to help you to access the treatment you need whichever way suits you best.
Always contact us first
For any of the treatments listed always contact us on your helpline number before you arrange any treatment, to ensure self-referral is appropriate and your costs are covered by your plan. You’ll be advised of any limits that apply to the cover your plan provides. And it’s always a good idea to check the list of benefits in the ‘Guide to Claiming and Terms and Conditions’ document too.
