How to Submit a Claim

If you go out-of-network in the U.S. or Puerto Rico or receive vision services outside the U.S. or Puerto Rico for which you had to pay out-of-pocket, there are two ways to submit your reimbursement claims to Cigna Healthcare: by e-mail or through postal mail. This is the Vision 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 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 mail.
  • For vision services in the U.S. or Puerto Rico, you must include:
    • The primary member name, including Cigna ID number

      • Date of service (mm/dd/yyyy)
