Insurance

If you are paying for your treatment or procedure with medical insurance, then you need to liaise closely with your insurance provider throughout your treatment. You should be aware of the terms and conditions of your policy and let us know if there are any limitations.

When you attend the clinic please make sure you bring the following:

  • Medical insurance registration documents
  • Completed claim form/proof of pre-authorisation by medical insurer

Our fees for procedures and surgery are generally aligned with the benefits payable by most major UK insurance companies. However, this is not always the case and your insurance company may have its own scale of charges, which may differ. If there is a difference, you may be required to pay part or all of this.

A charge may be made for completion of claim forms, or for medical or other reports requested in addition to our normal clinic or post-operative letters.

Charges are routinely covered in full by all medical insurers, subject to individual policy benefit limits, restrictions and excesses. If you have medical insurance, we will usually be able to settle accounts directly with the insurer, but please note that it is the patient’s responsibility to ensure that all bills are paid in full.

If you require surgery, you will be given an estimate of our fees, so that you can check your level of cover with your insurer. If you are not covered by medical insurance, the hospitals we work with can usually offer all-inclusive packages for surgery. For outpatient investigations, we will always be happy to give costs estimations in advance, although given the nature of healthcare it is not possible to be absolutely accurate in every case.

For an up to date list of fees or for the fees for a particular procedure, please contact us on 0117 980 4118. Such fees are set by the private hospitals, and given for illustration purposes only. They are not binding, as the nature of the treatment required can change.
