Please contact our Customer Care Team prior to treatment. We can help you arrange your treatment plan, and point you in the right direction, saving you the time and hassle of looking for a hospital, clinic or medical practitioner yourself. What’s more, in most cases we can arrange direct payment with your treatment provider, cutting down the hassle and letting you focus on your health.
You DO NOT need to call the doctor every time, just the first time. After that, every other time will be all set.
If prior approval is obtained, but the beneficiary decides to receive treatment at a hospital, medical practitioner or clinic which is not part of the Cigna network, we will reduce any amount which we will pay by 20%. A list of Cigna network hospitals, clinics, and medical practitioners is available in your secure online Customer Area or you can contact our Customer Care Team for more information.
Your Overall Limit
Our plans comprise of 3 distinct levels of cover: Silver, Gold and Platinum.
Your chosen level of cover is detailed in the table below. All amounts apply per beneficiary and per period of cover (except where otherwise noted).
International Medical Insurance is your essential cover for inpatient, day patient and accommodation costs, as well as cover for cancer, mental health care and much more. Our Gold and Platinum plans also give you cover for inpatient and day-patient maternity care.
Cigna Annual Coverage Limit is 1million for silver plan, 2 million for gold plan & unlimited amount for platinum plan.
The 1 or 2 million limits are per member, if a mother buys the plan for herself and 2 children, each member will have 1 million coverage under the silver plan.
Doctors and Specialist Visits
We usually recommend the adult patient to just get the core coverage and save some money by seeing the doctor and pay cash for your occasional flu and allergy visits.
However, for the family with children, it is best to include the doctor visits portion to your insurance plan. Children, especially those that go to daycare, are sick all the time.
Hospital charges are paid in full
This is the coverage limit (for prescription drugs) per doctor visits.
Local Ambulance and Air Ambulance Reimbursement
Transplant charges are paid in full
MRI, CT and PET Scans
› We will pay for the following scans if they are recommended by a specialist as a part of a beneficiary’s inpatient, day patient or outpatient treatment:
• magnetic resonance imaging (MRI);
• computed tomography (CT); and / or
• positron emission tomography (PET);
› We may require a medical report in advance of a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan.
› Following a diagnosis of cancer, we will pay for costs for the treatment of cancer if the treatment is considered by us to be active treatment and evidence-based treatment. This includes chemotherapy, radiotherapy, oncology, diagnostic tests, and drugs, whether the beneficiary is staying in a hospital overnight or receiving treatment as a daypatient or outpatient.
› We do not pay for genetic cancer screening.
PARENT AND BABY CARE
Routine maternity benefit care (Gold and Platinum plans only)
I personally have a close relative that has gone thru IVF, got pregnant with twins & had 2 twin boys prematurely at 7 months. Despite this relative very well off background, I doubt there will be happy with the 250K dollars bill for NICU. I don’t really know what it stands for, however, I have heard the phrase NIC-U so many times, I just know it is very expensive.
So after my relative insurance paid out 250K to some hospital, I realized that when a couple is having twins, (via IVF or natural), the chances of premature birth is high. (add research later)
With premature babies that don’t have Medicaid, it is very important to have health insurance.
We just had a prospect who is delivering with twins next week that just call us up. In the past, no matter how high the medical bill is, you can still resort to have Medicaid to help you pay for this bill. However, President Trump has taken measure to close that loophole. We have heard that many foreigners that abuse the Medicaid system knowingly or unknowingly, has been banned from entering the USA for life, that might defeat the purpose of having a US citizen child to begin with
Maternity and childcare coverage is covered, but if you are not NY City, I advise you not to use this plan. There is another much better option for coverage.
Complications from maternity (Gold and Platinum plans only)
Homebirths (Gold and Platinum plans only)
