Cigna Supplementary Insurance

The Supplementary Medical Cover can be purchased as a top-up to the Group Medical Insurance Policy. The policy is valid worldwide, and it reimburses the costs of medical hospital care given, due to a disease or an accident, in addition to the reimbursements of the Medical Cover.


The subscription to the Supplementary Medical Cover is provided on an optional basis for the following groups of Insured Persons:

  • Ph.D. or LL.M researchers;
  • Visiting researchers and fellows;
  • Post-doc fellows;
  • STG Fellows
  • Part-time professors
  • Trainees;
  • Dependents of the above

The Supplementary cover is always at the expense of the insured. If a Cigna Plan member subscribes to the Supplementary cover, the affiliation is compulsorily for all dependents.

The Supplementary Cover shall be subscribed when the Basic Medical Cover begins. You have exactly 30 days to enrol to the Supplementary once your Cigna Basic Medical Cover has started.

The Supplementary shall remain in place until the expiry date of the Basic Medical cover. If the Supplementary cover ends, it is not possible to reapply for it.
