The IDB Group medical benefits cover medical services in the U.S. and other countries. The Medical Benefits Program is self-funded. This means that your contributions and the IDB Group’s contributions are what pay for the medical expenses, not an insurance policy. The Medical Benefits Program is funded by contributions from staff, retirees and the IDB Group.

For members based in the U.S. or Puerto Rico

Cigna Healthcare is your plan administrator for medical, dental and vision services. Below you will find relevant information about your plan.

Plan Coverage Summary

Please read these documents:

Doctor/Provider Network in the U.S.

For a list of in-network providers in the US, please explore the myCigna App or my.cigna.com

Insurance companies in the U.S. work within a ‘network’ of providers and facilities. Make sure your provider and facility are both in Cigna Healthcare’s network to:

  1. Pay less co-pay
  2. Avoid paying extra towards the out-of-network deductible
  3. Avoid paying extra if the facility charges more than the Maximum Reimbursable Charges (MRC) for your procedures, previously known as Reasonable and Customary (R&C).

Out-of-network providers generally:

  1. Charge higher rates and co-pays than in-network providers.
  2. Charge a deductible before the Program pays any benefits.
  3. Request you to pay for your services out of pocket and then file a claim with Cigna Healthcare for reimbursement.
Health Providers Outside the U.S.

Medical care

If you are traveling outside the U.S. and Puerto Rico and require medical care, you can visit any medical provider you choose. For low-cost services, you will be required to pay out of pocket for the service and file a claim for reimbursement. For more costly care, you should always request a one-time Guarantee of Payment (GOP) prior to seeking services by calling the number on the back of your ID card. Cigna Healthcare will attempt to place a GOP with your desired provider.

If the GOP is accepted by the provider, the provider will bill Cigna Healthcare for the services you receive. If the provider does not accept a GOP, you will be required to pay out of pocket for your service and file a claim for reimbursement.

Emergencies

In an emergency, you should go directly to the most appropriate physician and/or hospital and contact Cigna Healthcare as soon as possible using the phone number on the back of your ID card.

If necessary, a family member or other representative may contact Cigna Healthcare on your behalf.

Phone Number: +1 800-IDB-3637 (+1 800-432-3637) (US)

ID Card Replacement

Please visit Cigna Healthcare's website (mycigna.com) or mobile app to request a new card, print a physical card or obtain a digital one.

How to Submit a Claim

If you go out-of-network in the U.S. or Puerto Rico or receive medical services outside the U.S. or Puerto Rico for which you had to pay out-of-pocket, there are several ways to submit your reimbursement claims to Cigna Healthcare: by e-mail, by fax or through postal mail. This is the Medical Claim Form. In-network claims are automatically sent by the provider.

To help the claim and reimbursement process go smoothly:

  • When you pay for your procedure at a U.S. provider, always be sure ask for a “Superbill” as your receipt for payment. This document typically contains the detailed provider information necessary for Cigna Healthcare to process your claim. When a “Superbill” is not available (providers outside the U.S. may not use this type of invoice document), be sure to get an invoice/receipt that shows the details listed below. 
  • For e-mail submissions, you must submit scanned copies of any supporting documentation with your claim form. For fax and postal mail submissions, you must submit paper copies of any supporting documentation with your claim form.
  • Be sure to keep copies of your itemized bills, detailed receipts, and other claim-supporting documents in case they are needed for verification purposes
  • Include your member ID number on each document submitted with your claim.
  • Check to make sure that the documentation from your provider includes all of the following information, or include it yourself when completing the claim process via e-mail; or when completing a paper claim to fax or mail. Make sure to provide all necessary supporting documents, including original, scanned, or photographed itemized bills or detailed receipts, certificates, and medical reports as applicable.

 For medical claims in the U.S. or Puerto Rico, you must include:
 

1.   The primary member name, including Cigna ID number 

2.   Please be sure the detailed invoice/receipt you are submitting includes: 

  • Date of service (mm/dd/yyyy) 
  • Patient name
  • Procedure code
  • Charge amount for each service 
  • Health care professional name/credentials
  • Health care professional address
  • Health care professional Tax ID number
  • Diagnosis code (ICD format)

    3.   Proof of payment (e.g., credit card or other receipt) if the invoice from the provider does not show “amount paid” with a zero balance.


For medical claims outside the U.S. and Puerto Rico, you must include:
 

Cigna Healthcare recommends that claims for outside the U.S. and Puerto Rico to be e-mailed to IADBForeignClaims@cignahealthcare.com with the information noted below:

1.   The primary member name, including Cigna ID number

2.   Please be sure the detailed invoice/receipt you are submitting includes:

  • Date of service (mm/dd/yyyy) 
  • Patient name
  • Description of services provided
  • Description of the reason for the service
  • Charge amount for each service
     

4.   Proof of payment (e.g., credit card or other receipt) if the invoice from the provider does not show “amount paid” with a zero balance.

5.   For claims from providers outside the U.S. or Puerto Rico, please include a description of each service and the reason for the services. A general description is sufficient. For example, if you are on mission and are seeing a doctor outside of the U.S. for migraines, the type of service can be stated as "doctor office visit" and the reason for the visit could be stated as "migraines" or "headaches." This information will be sufficient for Cigna Healthcare to be able to process the claims.

Plan Coverage Summary

Please read these documents:

Doctor/Provider Network in the U.S.

Call Cigna Global at the phone number on the front of your ID card to find in-network providers in the U.S. Puerto Rico.

Health Providers outside the U.S.

To find an in-network provider in your country of residence, you can use the provider search feature on the Cigna Health Benefits website or mobile app, or you can call the number on the front of your Cigna Global ID card. If you are outside your country of residency and require medical care, use the phone number on the front of your card to find providers in the U.S., Puerto Rico, or other countries.

Using your Cigna Global ID card on a “flash-the-card” basis/Direct Payment/Provider search

If you use the Cigna Global Website Provider Search on the Cigna Health Benefits website, you will see columns with checkmarks indicating these three categories of providers. Please take note of these categories so you can be prepared in advance for any services you may need:

  1. Direct payment to the provider for inpatient care (including outpatient surgery). If your service will cost less than US$400, you should be able to show your Cigna ID card and the provider will bill Cigna Global directly. If the service or procedure will cost more than US$400, the provider should request a GOP from Cigna Global. You may also initiate the GOP request yourself through your Cigna Global website. 
  2. Direct payment to the provider of outpatient care. These providers will work on a “flash the card” basis. However, for very low dollar value services, you will be expected to pay out of pocket and file for reimbursement. You can click on the provider’s name in your search results to verify the Direct Payment “as from amount” below which you will be expected to pay out of pocket, and over which you should be able to use “flash the card” and the provider will bill Cigna Global directly for your service or procedure.  
  3. Price agreement (e.g., preferential rates, discounts on specific services, prompt payment discounts, etc.). At these providers, you will be expected to pay out-of-pocket for out-patient services and submit a claim for reimbursement, however because Cigna has negotiated rates or discounts, your coinsurance amount will typically be lower.

    Guarantee of Payment (GOP)
    If you choose to visit a provider outside the U.S. or Puerto Rico that is out-of-network with Cigna Global, you may request a one-time Guarantee of Payment prior to seeking services by using the Cigna Health Benefits website or emailing admissions@cigna.com (for non-emergency care) or by calling the number on the front of your ID card (in emergencies). Cigna Global typically will issue your GOP within 48 hours for non-urgent procedures and within two hours for emergencies if the GOP is requested by phone.

    If the GOP is accepted by the provider, the provider will bill Cigna Global for the services you receive. If you are unsure whether a provider is in- or out-of-network, you should look up the provider using the Cigna Health Benefits website or mobile app. In the case of admissions, request a GOP so you will know in advance if the provider will bill Cigna Global or if you will be required to pay and file a claim.

Tips for Using the Plan
  • Actively manage any chronic conditions to keep them from becoming more serious. 
  • Take advantage of the preventive care coverage and case management services offered by the Program and the resources from the administrator based on where you live, either Cigna Healthcare or Cigna Global. 
  • Choose in-network health providers when in the U.S. This can result in significant savings for you and the Medical Program! 
  • Choose telemedicine, Urgent Care facilities (UCFs) or in the U.S., Retail Clinics (e.g., CVS Minute Clinics) instead of the Emergency Room (ER) when appropriate.
