  • Will you have to pay the excess?

  • Private prescription drugs are not usually covered by insurance policies

  • Even though most medical insurance companies settle accounts directly on your behalf, payment remains your responsibility

  • We can help you fill in your claim form

  • Patients who are eligible for NHS treatment can swap between private and NHS treatment at any time, subject to GP referring back to the NHS system

All accounts enquiries and payments should be directed to our ENT Office 0739200050

 

Responsibility for payment

Please remember that, as a private patient, payment is your responsibility, although many medical insurance companies will settle the account directly on your behalf.

 

When is payment due?

The balance of your account, less any deposit, is payable immediately after your consultation.

  • Cheques

  • Cash

  • BACS – online bank transfers

BACS payments

Our bank details for transfer will appear on your invoice. If you choose to use BACS or online transfer, please keep us advised as it is not always clear where incoming payments have come from.

 

Private Medical Insurance Claims for direct settlement

  • A signed insurance claim form, or confirmed the pre-authorisation number, is essential if you want your medical insurance company to pay us directly

  • If you do not receive your claim form from the insurance company until after your consultation, please sign it and send it on to 92 Hill Rise, Greenford UB6 8PE without delay

  • Other bills from hospitals, anaesthetists, radiologists, pathologists etc. may arrive before or after ours

  • If your insurance claim is already in progress, please send any further invoices you receive to your insurance company, quoting your policy and claim reference numbers

 

BAD DEBT POLICY

We provide an excellent and efficient service, and it is rare that any of our patients default on paying their accounts. For the tiny minority who avail themselves of our time and expertise but do not pay their bills, our policy is to send two reminders, then pursue the debt through the small claims court
