Doctor Care Anywhere referrals will always be “open referrals”. You can download your referral letter after your appointment and then submit it to our claims team to process.
Please note in some cases, we may request additional information from your NHS and private GP to approve your claim. An open referral can also be taken to your own choice of private specialist.
We cannot guarantee this process. In this instance, it is best to send your open referral letter to your NHS GP. They will then assess if the referral is eligible for NHS treatment or if it needs further investigation.
Not always, but claims are assessed on an individual basis. So, if we did need to access your medical history, all we would need you to do is sign a consent form, either electronically or by post.
You will then need to take the form to your historical GP with the pre-prepared ‘Note to GP’ letter (this tells the GP what information we require). Your GP will then action the request and send the requested information to us.
Yes, if your GP needs to prescribe something for you, they can arrange for this to be delivered to your home or local pharmacy.*
Yes, depending on the cover level you choose and its out-patient benefit, the doctor may also be able to refer you for diagnostic tests for some conditions. This will be where they are clinically and geographically appropriate (England, Scotland and Wales)
Dependants must also be aged 18 and over for a GP to organise diagnostic testing.
