The benefits of using your Private Medical Insurance (PMI)
We are welcomed and recognised by all health insurers, so accessing our services using your insurance is easy.
If you are using health insurance to pay for your treatment, you need to liaise with your insurance initially for your treatment to be approved. They will then issue you with a pre-authorisation number which you give to us when you book your initial appointment.
Continue to liaise with your insurer throughout treatment and it is a good to familiarise yourself with their terms and conditions and to find out if there any treatment limitations on your policy.
More and more people are choosing to use their PMI for treatment, not only because they don't have to wait long for treatment, but also because it comes with a whole host of benefits.
Why wait? Contact us today.

Using your private medical insurance
Step 1. Gain authorisation from your insurance company. We work with all the major health insurance companies. Before attending an appointment, it is important to check that your insurance policy will cover you and if there is an excess to pay. Some insurance companies also require a referral by way of a letter from your GP.
Step 2. Once your insurance company has authorised your hospital visit/treatment, contact us to make your appointment.
The information we need
Step 3. So that we can bill your insurer directly, here is what we will need from you:
The name of your insurance company.
Your membership or policy number.
The claim number or authorisation code given to you by your insurance company.
Step 4. We want you to concentrate on your recovery and will liaise directly with your insurers wherever possible to arrange payment.
