During Your Consultation
The GP might issue a private prescription, offer a blood test, or refer you for a minor diagnostic test, such as an x-ray. You’ll need to pay for this yourself, but you may be able to claim the cost back from your Vitality GP Benefit providing you have remaining allowance.
The GP may also be able to offer you a scan or ultra-sound to understand a bit more about your condition. Before proceeding with this you should contact VitalityHealth to seek authorisation.
After Your Consultation
If the GP considers that you need referral for onward treatment, for example seeing a consultant, they will write you an open referral letter which you’ll need to send to firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure the letter includes your full name and plan number. VitalityHealth will then call you with their decision. If you have any further treatment without contacting us for authorisation first, they may not be able to provide cover.
You can find more information about this service and FAQs on the Vitality Member Zone.
