How to claim

Claiming with CBHS International is simple and efficient, because we’ve made easy and stress-free claiming one of our top priorities for members.

1) Claim on the spot.

If you visit one of our doctors within our National GP Network, present your CBHS International membership card and your photo identification and the medical centre will bill us directly. We’ll cover the full cost of your visit up to the relevant service limit*.

If your doctor orders tests, such as blood tests or x-rays, these cannot be claimed on the spot. You will need to pay for these services and keep the receipt. Depending on your level of cover, you may be able to claim a benefit from CBHS International Health.
