How to make a claim:

  • Once your GP has carried out all preliminary investigations and has provided you with a referral letter, please forward a copy to medical@polfed.org (GP referrals are not required for Physiotherapy or Counselling)
  • Await authorisation from the Medical Scheme. The team will authorise your treatment as quickly as possible and in line with the Scheme rules.
  • Once authorisation has been obtained, you will be provided with a claim reference and contact details for our dedicated Account Manager at Spire Leicester who will arrange an appointment for you.
  • For members that reside outside of Leicestershire, you will be advised of your authorised healthcare facility once your claim has been authorised.

It is your responsibility to obtain authorisation for all treatment. Failure to do so may affect any claim.
