I am registered and recognised by all of the major insurance companies. Patients who have Private Medical Insurance will need to contact their private health provider prior to their appointment and check the terms of their policy.
This will ensure that they are covered for their initial consultation, scans, x-rays and any other treatment that may be required. The insurance company will provide patients with a Pre Authorisation Number or Claim Number, which will need to be provided for administration and invoicing purposes and will allow us to deal with the insurance company directly for the payment of invoices.
If there is an excess on the patient’s policy, the excess will be for the patient’s own account. Payments will need to be made by cheque, credit or debit card in a timely manner.
Insured patients will require a referral letter from their GP, or another Healthcare Professional, this is stipulated by Private Medical Insurance Companies. You must ask them to refer you to myself, which must be stated on the letter.
SELF PAY PATIENTS
I am happy to see uninsured patients in my private clinic. However, It is important that uninsured patients appreciate that imaging (plain radiographs/or x-rays) may be required to achieve an initial diagnosis.
Consultation charges are available on request. Subsequent charges for imaging and if appropriate, surgical procedures may also be requested. A GP (or other Healthcare Professional) referral letter is requested. Uninsured patients will be invoiced following their consultation and payment may be made by cash, cheque, credit or debit card.
The hospitals I work in are able to offer package prices for surgical procedures should these be required. No payment will be taken from your card without your prior permission.
If you are a self-funding patient, payment will be debited from your card following your consultations . If you would prefer to settle your consultation charge on by cash or cheque, please contact Lynne Pedley 01215075481 to confirm this method of payment.
